Even mild physical activity can't be overstated

Everyone knows how important regular exercise is when it comes to maintaining a healthy and happy lifestyle, but some folks find the idea to be a little overwhelming. Perhaps you used to exercise, but fell out of a routine for any number of reasons and you've struggled to get back into the swing of it. Perhaps you find the idea of a gym to be a bit too intimidating. Perhaps you think you don't have enough time in your busy schedule. Recent studies have shown that no exercise at all poses the greatest health risk. Even mild physical activity has numerous health benefits, including a reduction in the risk of breast cancer. Substantial weight gain, on the other hand, will almost certainly negate these benefits. A new analysis done by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill researchers has found that physical activity - either mild or intense and before or after menopause may reduce breast cancer risk.
