Uterine fibroids are the leading cause of hysterectomy. But new research shows that getting more exercise can reduce your risk of getting uterine fibroids. . . .  The study looked at exercise levels in 1,189 women between thirty-five and forty-nine years of age. Women who did vigorous exercise for at least four hours a week were less likely to develop uterine fibroids than women who were less active. The most active women were an incredible 39% less likely to develop uterine fibroids than the women who were least active.
