Cancer survivors reap benefits of weight training

A Florida State University study is working with postmenopausal breast cancer survivors by putting them on a weight training program.

Through that study, researchers at Florida State University and other institutions found that if you put female breast cancer survivors on a weight training program and fed them prunes, they could at least maintain their current levels of muscle mass and bone density. The findings were published in “Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism.”
