Taking control of your health and developing healthy habits can help reduce your risks of developing breast cancer. Physical activity and regular exercise helps maintain a healthy weight, which is important for breast health. High levels of estrogen increase the risk of breast cancer and working out regularly shrinks the size of fat cells and lowers estrogen production. The Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity on weekly basis. Find your body-mass index (BMI) which is calculated based on your height and weight, and then refer to a BMI chart to know your healthy weight range.
