      Breast Cancer Risk Reduction

      {}

      There's another reason some women may want to hit the gym and watch what they eat.

      A new study says, even a moderate decrease in weight could help reduce breast cancer risks.

      Researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center used data from sedentary post-menopausal women who were overweight or obese.

      They say, even a five percent weight loss can reduce the levels of circulating estrogens.

      Those hormones are linked with an increased breast cancer risk.

      Researchers say, a healthy diet is also key and that it's never too late to make lifestyle changes.
