Active teens less likely to get breast cancer

image Being fit never looked and felt so good for teens. In a recent study it has been found that exercise for teen girls could help them stay clear from breast cancer. Certainly good news in the line of helping in the fight against breast cancer.

If we can stop it before it starts, why shouldn’t we? For a long time, it has been advised that women in their middle ages start getting active to lower the risk of developing breast cancer after they start menopause. Now it seems that starting this when you are younger, around age 12, and keeping it up is beneficial. As listed by MSNBC, “Women who were physically active as teens and young adults were 23 percent less likely to develop premenopausal breast cancer than women who grew up sedentary, researchers report Wednesday in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.”

Those are some impressive results. More impressive is that they found the greatest impact was in ages 12-22 with regular exercise. This shows, exercise really is good for you. We should all get active, no matter your age, health, or gender. Getting active continues to show many health and lifestyle benefits. Beat them to the punch and get and stay active and healthy for life!
