Research: Influence of Pre- and Postdiagnosis Physical Activity on Mortality in Breast Cancer Survivors: The Health, Eating, Activity, and Lifestyle Study

In a Journal of Clinical Oncology article published in August, 2008, Influence of Pre- and Postdiagnosis Physical Activity on Mortality in Breast Cancer Survivors: The Health, Eating, Activity, and Lifestyle Study, researchers from the Yale School of Medicine, National Cancer Institute and others determined the following: “We found that women who participated in any moderate-intensity recreational physical activity, such as brisk walking, after diagnosis had an approximately 64% lower risk of death than inactive women. Furthermore, exercising at recommended amounts of 2.5 hours per week of moderate-intensity physical activity compared with no exercise was associated with a slightly higher risk reduction of 67%. Although our risk reductions were observed for total deaths, the majority of deaths were from breast cancer.”
