Almost everyone knows someone who is suffering or has suffered from a form of breast cancer. Breast cancer is a disease that so many want to avoid, but how? A recent study shows that vigorous exercise can be a stepping stone to help heal this epidemic.

Research that was conducted by Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center has revealed interesting findings. Their focus group was African American women. Where numbers are concerned, more white women develop breast cancer but the type of breast cancer most African American women develop is the more server type known as triple-negative breast cancer.

The research showed that women who had engaged in some sort of vigorous exercise for at least two hours a week over the past year reduced their chances of getting breast cancer by well over 50%. That's a huge percentage! Just adding two hours a week of vigorous exercise can not only help you loose weight it can increase you chances of bypassing breast cancer.

Vigorous exercise can be a number of activities; aerobics, running, plyometrics, interval training, playing tennis. Vigorous exercise describes activity that requires high intensity for a prolonged period of time; at least 20minutes at a time. If presently you are not physically able to engage in such activity begin today with low to moderate exercise and gradually build your stamina and strength until you can perform vigorous exercise. The research showed that only 2 hours of vigorous exercise decreases the chance of breast cancer but more will absolutely help overall health.

The research conducted by Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center focused on African American women but engaging in vigorous exercise can only help all women regardless of their ethnicity. The number of women being diagnosed with breast cancer is growing so it's time to adjust your lifestyle by adding two hours of vigorous exercise to decrease your chances of being the next person diagnosed with breast cancer.
