According to researchers from the American Cancer Society, walking at least 7 hours per week is associated with a 14% lower risk of developing breast cancer in post menopausal women. Many other studies also describe that daily exercise can help women lower their risk of breast cancer. The American Cancer Society recommendation is that adults exercise at least 150 minutes at a moderate pace (brisk walk) or participate in vigorous-intensity activity (running, aerobic dance, and soccer) minutes each week. The theory is that daily physical activity regulates including estrogen and insulin hormones, which can fuel breast cancer growth.
