Diabetes, breast cancer and exercise!!

Post by pennycsf » Sun Sep 23, 2012 1:33 pm

There has been a recent study published in the British Journal of Cancer which suggests a link between Type 2 diabetes (that is the type which tends to affect adults, is often linked to obesity and is usually controllable by diet) and breast cancer.

A variety of studies involving more than 56,000 women with breast cancer have been pulled together. The conclusion seems to indicate that post-menopausal women with Type 2 diabetes are more likely to have breast cancer, however, there is no such link with pre-menopausal women.

Further studies are continuing into the possible hormonal relationship between the two.

As it has been known for some time that obesity increases the risk of BC, the only conclusion which can be drawn at the moment, is that being overweight is not good for you!

So, let's get walking in the wonderful French countryside :D
