(Post # 33) Exercise & Breast Health

I believe that walking must be a part of every treatment for neuromuscular pain and dysfunction. There is now evidence that brisk walking can reduce the risk of breast cancer by 20 percent. For those who already have the disease, walking three to five hours a week may reduce the chance of dying from it by as much as 50 percent.

For more on this see February issue of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise (official journal of the American College of Sports Medicine).
