Exercising 30 to 60 minutes a day may offer needed protection, experts say

SUNDAY, Nov. 2 (HealthDay News) -- Obesity can wreck a person's health for many reasons. But for women, too much weight tacks on an additional danger: Studies have linked obesity and breast cancer in a variety of ways.

The study also found that a greater proportion of obese patients were likely to be diagnosed with a rare and
