Exercise and Breast Cancer

Recently I was asked to suggest alternative hormone treatment for an obese postmenopausal woman with breast cancer. My advise was to lose weight. Supplemental estrogen in any form is estrogen and carries increased risk for breast cancer patients. Exercise can reduce the risk for developing breast cancer probably by changing the way estrogen is metabolized. Get up and get moving while eating plant based whole foods (mostly vegetables and fruit, especially blueberries, apples with the skin, grapes and grapefruit) and eliminating processed food and most meats, especially red meat. Not as easy as taking a pill but much more effective.
