Postmenopausal Women May Lower Breast Cancer Risk with TrekDesk Treadmill Desk Exercise

Published Date: July 2nd, 2012

Recent research involving more than 3,000 women of age from 20 to 98 years of age  involved in the Long Island Breast Cancer Study Project, found that women engaging in 10-19 hours per week of mild exercise such as walking starting in their reproductive years had a 30% lower risk of developing breast cancer. Women with a body mass index over 30 showed a lower risk of breast cancer if they remained physically active than both inactive, overweight women and inactive height-weight proportionate women as well. “We are excited by that, because it tells women that even if they are overweight or obese, they can still engage in physical activity and while they won’t lower their risk of breast cancer [below average], they will not be increasing their risk of the disease,” stated study author Lauren McCullough from the University of North Carolina in an interview.

A treadmill desk from TrekDesk lets you workout at work. Trekdesk Treadmill Desk fits virtually any treadmill allowing employees/students to walk slowly while working without sweating or extra time out of the day. Walking promotes health restoration, weight loss, and disease prevention; boosting mood, productivity, and cognitive functions at any age.“Study after study is showing that moderate activity such as walking provides extraordinary health benefits. The challenge for most Americans is finding the time and will power to stick to an exercise regimen,” state Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desks.
