A recent study out of France found even a small amount of regular exercise, like walking, can help postmenopausal women cut their risk for breast cancer.
WPTV: "The study followed postmenopausal women who walked at least four hours a week over the past four years. Their risk of breast cancer was 10 percent less than when we exercise less."
Specifically, more than 59,000 postmenopausal women in France were observed for an average of eight and a half years.
