(NBC) - A new study suggests physical activity can help prevent breast cancer in women of any age.

A recent study found those who exercised over an hour a day were 12% less likely to develop breast cancer than the least active women, regardless of age or B.M.I.

Researchers say these findings are encouraging, but did note that exercise failed to improve breast cancer rates in women taking hormone replacement therapy.
