Being Overweight increases cancer chances
Consuming processed food and drinking sugary drinks will start a person on a path to obesity combining this with a low active life and a repulsion to engage in exercise will make a person obese. Not only heart disease & bowl disorders are connected with this lifestyle choice but now ten different variants of cancer.
Research Led by scientists from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine researchers gathered data on five million people living in the UK, monitoring changes to their health over a period of seven years.
They found each 13-16kg (2-2.5 stone) of extra weight an average adult gained was linked firmly and linearly to a greater risk of six cancers.
How big this risk was varied depending on tumour type.
Cancer of the uterus had the highest increased risk
leukaemia had the lowest rise in risk.
