One to three hours of exercise a week over a women's reproductive lifetime (the teens to about age 40) can bring a 20-30 percent reduction in the risk of breast cancer, and four or more hours of exercise a week can reduce the risk almost 60 percent. (Journal of the National Cancer Institute, 1994).
A study of 73,000 women found that those who were most active had a 40% lower risk of heart attacks than the least active. Even moderate activity produced significant drops in risk. (Dr. JoAnn Manson, co-director of women's health, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, reported by Associated Press, March 11, 1995).
