A new study published in The Breast Journal, authored by researchers at the Department of Surgery, St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, New York, NY confirms numerous past studies showing low bone mineral density lowers the risk of breast cancer,[i], [ii], [iii], [iv], [v], [vi], [vii], [viii], [ix], [x], [xi], [xii], [xiii] and validates the hypothesis that women with breast cancer and low bone mineral density will have lower breast cancer recurrence rates than women with so-called ‘normal’ bone density.

Rebounding is a simple exercise with exceptional overall health benefits that go far beyond fitness. The practice of rebounding couldn’t be easier: it requires as little as 5 minutes a day of bouncing lightly or jumping on a trampoline (usually a high-quality mini trampoline used at home).
