Preventing Breast Cancer

I receive newsletters from the American Institute for Cancer Research or AICR.  The most recent one refers to the incidence of breast cancer (new cases per year), and research into the prevention of cases.

The AICR offers several strategies, including weight control, physical activity and limiting alcohol  to prevent this disease or perhaps more accurately, to reduce risk.

They have also created a brochure that highlights some of their research based suggestions.

Additionally, I am in the process of reading an article in the current edition of the ACSM's Certified News that offers exercise recommendations for cancer survivors.  I will get to that in a future post, perhaps tomorrow.

For now I would like to take you directly to the AICR materials.  The Enews article can be found here and the colorful PDF brochure should open here.  

IF you have trouble with the brochure, go back to the first link and at the very bottom you can access the brochure.  (you do not have to sign up to get it, you can skip that part)
