Regular physical exercise can prevent 15 percent of breast cancer cases, while 18% more can be forestalled by maintaining proper weight, according to the Israel Cancer Association. The ICA will this week mark the end of the month for awareness of the disease in cooperation with the European Coalition Against Breast Cancer. A special event open to the public will be held at the Hangar at Tel Aviv Port on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. to promote exercise to reduce risk of cancer. A booklet on exercise for cancer prevention can be obtained from the ICA's Telemeida number, 1-800-599995.
