Healthy Diet for Breast Cancer Survivors Increased Survival
A woman diagnosed with breast cancer has a 90 percent chance of surviving five years, but long-term survival depends on many factors. A healthy diet may be one of those factors.
Breast Cancer Survivors Benefited from Yoga
Many breast cancer survivors report decreases in energy that interfere with daily activities. Yoga can be a gentle exercise that could boost energy and reduce fatigue in these survivors.
Preventing Disease with Exercise
Your health care provider may emphasize the importance of exercise, but exactly how important is physical activity for staying healthy?
Tomatoes Might Help Lower Obesity and Breast Cancer
Postmenopausal women can become more at risk for breast cancer if they are overweight. An easy dietary change may help reduce that risk by lowering the chances of obesity.
Walking Away From Cancer Rx Stiffness
After primary treatment, many breast cancer patients are given medicine to keep the disease from returning. Medicines called aromatase inhibitors block the production of estrogen, the hormone that feeds most breast cancers. Side effects of these medications can include joint pain and stiffness.
Eating Plants to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
Eating nutritious fruits and vegetables is an important part of keeping your body strong and healthy. A new study shows that a plant-based diet may also play a role in preventing cancer.
Multivitamins May Supplement Cancer Survival
About a third of Americans take a multivitamin with minerals — the most commonly used type of dietary supplement in the US. A new study looked at the impact of this use on breast cancer survival.
An Hour a Day to Keep Breast Cancer Away
Research has demonstrated that physical activity lowers the risk of breast cancer. What hasn’t been clear are the specifics – how long and how intense the exercise needs to be to cut risks. A new study drills down on how exercise can reduce a postmenopausal woman's chances of developing breast cancer.
Breast Cancer Survivors Swelling
Women who’ve lived through breast cancer often experience lingering effects from treatment. One of those effects is arm swelling. Researchers recently defined how often this swelling occurs, which women are most at risk and what can be done to help prevent the condition.
Breast Cancer Survivors Get Healthier
