Good Friday Morning Readers! I was looking thru a past issue of a Women’s Day magazine (Oct. 2011). And regarding my last post, Wednesday on walking, Women’s Day said that just 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week can cut your breast cancer risk by nearly 20%. And that regular exercise (2.5 hours a week, which you can break up into five 30-minute brisk walks) not only helps to keep your weight in check, it can also lower estrogen levels and boost your immune system, helping to prevent any abnormal cells from growing and spreading. And if you do get breast cancer, KEEP MOVING. Breast cancer survivors who did the equivalent of one to two hours of brisk walking a week had a 40% lower risk of dying from breast cancer,according to a study from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. SO KEEP WALKING PEOPLE and THINK PINK every month of the year. Enjoy your weekend and WALK ON !!!!!!!!!!
