4 your health: Exercise best for women with breast cancer

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- A new study out of Canada reveals the best two factors that keep victims of breast cancer alive.

Researchers wanted to see how certain lifestyle choices improve the survival of breast cancer patients and reduce the risk of recurrence. While eating healthy, quitting smoking and limiting alcohol were helpful, avoiding weight gain and exercise had the greatest impact on survival.

Experts recommend  that patients should get 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day at least five days a week.

More knee injuries for young people

Knee injuries are becoming more common among kids and teens.

New data shows ACL tears in youth have increased by about two percent every year, over the past 20 years. Researchers said the push to play intense, year round sports at an earlier age may be partially responsible for the rise in knee injuries.

Longevity around the world

People in developed nations will continue to live longer.

Researchers predict by 2030 life expectancies among women will be highest in South Korea, topping *90 years old, followed by France and Japan. Men are projected to live longest in South Korea, Australia and Switzerland.

Researchers say the U.S. lags behind, due to soaring homicide rates, rising obesity and a lack of universal health care.

The 2030 life expectancy projection for Americans is 83.3 years for women and 79.5 for men.
