Up-to-date news in the world of ex­er­cise phys­i­ol­ogy.

Thirty per­cent of women who over­come breast can­cer ex­pe­ri­ence a re­cur­rence, ac­cord­ing to Breast­cancer.org. But a meta-anal­y­sis of 22 stud­ies found that women who par­tic­i­pated in phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity sig­nif­i­cantly re­duced their risk of an­other bout with the big C. Get mov­ing with one of these great events this Oc­to­ber in honor of Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month, and pro­tect your own health while rais­ing money to help oth­ers pre­serve theirs.
