    Obviously the study data was not interpreted by a cancer treatment survivor. Exercise can only come way after chemo is completed. . Radiation is known fatigue and weakness is primary factor.
    This “perceived memory problems” cease or lessen over time. Varying and random.
    The last thing a person who is within 10 months of treatments should be expected to be engaged in formal exercise.
    There have been studies where survivors are entered but the drop out rate is largely not recorded.
    Chemo is debilitating. And forever changes the strength the balance the memory and creates new permanent challenges .
    Don’t minimize that with – just exercise!

    Two things that are eeded to prevent breast cance are, vitamin D3 and Iodine. women of darker skin tones are more prone to breast cancer because their skin resist the sun rays more than women of light skin tones, this reduces the amount of vitamin D3 they absorb.

    Iodine is another important element in the protection of breast (and other) cancer. Iodine is an important element in the development of a fetus in the womb in that it is key to the physical formation of the fetus child. The lack of it can cause babies to be born missing a limb of finger or the negatively effect the full development of the brain. Iodine is processed by the thyroid. It is critical for the maintenance of hormones and the proper functioning of the metabolic process. I have seen women rid themselves of fibrocystic breast disease just with iodine alone (A disease I consider a precursor to breast cancer).

    The aforementioned have not been evaluated by the food and drug adminisration and if you have a medical condition, please contact your medical provider.

    This is ridiculous! No other illness leads to being frightened, fatigued, stress and low self-confidence?? Just Breast Cancer? But oddly enough, a serious side-effect linked with treatment for a disease that most commonly affects women is mostly emotional? And easily cured with diet and exercise? And if we just get off our lazy, junk-eating butts while we’re being treated with chemotherapy I suppose we wouldn’t lose our all our hair either.

    The conclusion of this study apparently omits the fact that the brain is a literal, physical organ in the body. As so, it can also suffer side-effects from radiation, chemotherapy, Herceptin, and the after care medicines used. Other side affects are hair loss, painful headaches, extreme exhaustion, trouble breathing, heart and lung pain, dangerously low blood levels requiring immediate treatment, burned and peeling skin and too many others to list. “Perceived” memory problems are actually one of the lesser side-effects but no less real. Too often, patients have been pooh-poohed over side-effects of medicine and then later the proof comes. Just because most sufferers of breast cancer are women does not mean that our memory loss is emotional – caused by being frightened, fatigued, stressed and having low self-confidence. Would any study ever claim that for the side effects of any other cancer patients treatment? Or the side effects from any other disease treatement?
