Obesity is significant factor for cancer development in women
the ONA take:
Risk of developing a weight-related cancer is increased for obese women by approximately 40% compared with the risk for women of a healthy weight, according to new statistics released by Cancer Research UK.
The seven types of cancer linked to body weight include bowel, postmenopausal breast, gallbladder, uterine, kidney, pancreatic, and esophageal cancers. In the UK, approximately 18,000 women develop cancer due to obesity or overweight each year.
Researchers acknowledge that losing weight can be challenging, and they recommend people start with small changes that increase their activity levels and food consumption.
Lifestyle changes such as smoking cessation, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a healthy diet, and reducing alcohol intake are solid measures each person can take to reduce their risk of developing cancer.
