    Study finds that Cycling could reduce risk of breast cancer

    Found this on the BBC website, Its early days as far as the study is concerned but I thought people may may be interested

    why cycling though? why not any other kind of aerobic exercise....?

    obviously the investigator must be biased toward cyclists... or probably even be a cyclist him/herself

    perhaps... I was thinking the same thing, aerobic activity should decrease the risk just the same... right?

    either way it's a good article to promote cycling
