A new study found a link between bra size, exercise levels and cancer mortality. Simply put: it found that women who met current exercise guidelines were about 40 percent less likely to die from breast cancer. Smaller bra cup sizes also seemed to lower the chance women would die from the disease. Specifically, this study demonstrated:
- It only took about seven miles of brisk walking or five miles of running each week to reduce a woman’s chance of dying from breast cancer.
- Women with a C cup bra size were four times the risk of breast cancer risk compared to women with A cups. That risk jumped to five times for women with a D cup or larger.
What does this mean to you? While you can’t change your bra cup size, you can change how much you exercise. Just seven miles may help protect you from breast cancer mortality. That’s less than one mile a day. Just run one mile a day and take two days off. No matter how you do it, make exercise a priority. This study once again demonstrates the importance of exercise to your health.
