Exercise After Age 30 May Reduce Breast Cancer Risk

The reasons to exercise range from weight loss to stress reduction, but I have another reason to keep you sweating it out at the gym. A new study presented at the American College of Sports Medicine's annual meeting shows that women who exercise after age 30 — for more than an hour a week — may help to significantly cut their chances of developing breast cancer. Of the 4,296 women studied, those who exercised over 60 minutes a week developed fewer cases of breast cancer when compared with women who were less active. Exercising an hour a week to prevent breast cancer is a great motivator, especially when you consider 13 percent of women will develop breast cancer in the US.

Are you over 30? How many minutes a week do you exercise?

Not 30 yet, but since I've spent my 20s making exercise part of my life, I am certain I'll find it easier to continue it as a routine down the road.

I'm not over 30 yet, but I work out for a lot more than 60 minutes a week. I think a big part of it is that it reduces your overall body fat, which decreases the amount of estrogen you have stored in your body.
