Menopause News Flash: Did the WHI get it right(?!), exercise, breast health
Keep exercising ladies! Study shows that women who started exercising after menopause — if they averaged 9 to 17 hours a week, they were 30 percent less likely to have breast cancer than their inactive peers.
Remember last years WHI study of POST menopausal women that said if you had late-onset of hot flashes you were at a higher risk of heart attacks and death. In addition, they said that women who had hot flashes around the time of menopause did not have an increased risk, and maybe even had a lower chance of heart attacks than women with no hot flashes. Well, once again — ERASE all that! Here is the new info from the latest study.
