How exercise cuts Breast Cancer Risk

We’ve all said it before, who has time to exercise? The reality is, for a woman’s best breast health, exercise should be a priority. According to recent article, studies have proven definitively that exercise significantly lowers the odds of the woman developing breast cancer. Women who exercised approximately 10 hours a week performing only moderate exercise level intensity had a 30% lower risk of breast cancer than those who were inactive according to a new study. According to the article, even working out less than the moderate level of exercise intensity, by walking or even gardening can still reduce your risk of developing the disease. “Exercise can enhance immune response and DNA repair,” says lead author Lauren McCullough, a doctoral candidate in epidemiology at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Even for those women who have not exercising years, and do not know where to start, there is still a marked benefit.  “Women can start now and still lower their likelihood of developing breast cancer, no matter their age” says McCullough. Some patients tell Dr. Seify that starting a health exercise routine can be extremely intimidating when are not satisfied with the overall shape and contour of their body. For some patients having liposuction can help to provide better contour, higher self-esteem, and the motivation to get started on a lifelong exercise routine. While liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, for normal weight patients it helps with body contour. For many patients this is an excellent opportunity to jumpstart their exercise program for better health. It is important for patients to realize that as patients improve their exercise routine they are also likely to improve their liposuction results. Patients who are considering body contouring procedures are encouraged to contact Dr. Seify’s office to determine which body contouring procedures are best for them.
