Obesity Linked To 13 Different Cancers

If you think should be taking for granted then you need to have a serious rethink.

Findings from a new study suggest that being obese or was associated with cases involving more than 630,000 Americans in 2014, and this includes 13 types of cancer.

“That obesity and overweight are affecting cancers may be surprising to many Americans. The awareness of some cancers being associated with obesity and overweight is not yet widespread,” Dr. Anne Schuchat, CDC deputy director, said during a midday media briefing.
The 13 cancers include: brain cancer; multiple myeloma; cancer of the esophagus; postmenopausal ; cancers of the thyroid, gallbladder, stomach, liver, pancreas, kidney, ovaries, uterus and colon, the researchers said.

Speaking at the news conference, Dr. Lisa Richardson, director of CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, said early evidence indicates that losing weight can lower the risk for some cancers.
Dr. Farhad Islami is strategic director of cancer surveillance research for the American Cancer Society.

He said it’s “important to note that only a fraction of the cancers included in the calculation in this report are actually caused by excess body weight.”
