Many Breast Cancer Survivors Remain Inactive After Treatment

What's more, although USA breast cancer mortality rates have been declining since 1989, around 40,610 American women are expected to die from breast cancer this year.

The study was done over a period of nine years during which the researchers conducted various follow ups with the patients.

The results suggested that use of other hormonal contraceptives was, by contrast, associated with 32% higher breast cancer risk among younger women under 50 when compared to women who did not use hormonal contraceptives.

These findings seem to be related to a previous study from Asia in which data from 5,042 Chinese women with breast cancer were analyzed. Researchers said this study is the first to examine the long-term impact of exercise before a cancer diagnosis and the cardiovascular benefits of exercise across all types of cancer treatments. A weaker but significant association was also observed among women who did not undergo endocrine therapy treatment.

"Next to a second or recurrent cancer, heart disease is the second leading killer in cancer patients and survivors, so anything we can do to prevent cancer survivors from developing heart disease is very important", said Tochi Okwuosa, DO, a cardiovascular disease specialist at Rush University Medical Center and the study's lead author. In the trial, 307 women who had been treated for early breast cancer were given the choice of following their normal diet or switching to a Mediterranean diet. The Ontario government, for instance, covers the costs of fertility preservation.

A new study has shown that women who eat a Mediterranean diet rich in fruit, vegetables, fish and olive oil are 40 percent less likely to get one of the most malignant types of breast cancer.

Researcher Sanna Heikkinen from the University of Helsinki in Finland and Finnish Cancer Registry evaluated the contribution of the use of hormonal contraceptives and hair dyes on breast cancer risk factors.

Oestrogen-receptor negative (ER-negative) breast cancer is an aggressive form of postmenopausal breast cancer. However death rates for female breast cancer are steadily declining, particularly in the age group between 50 and 69 years (-1.9% per year).
