Cancer caused by being overfat

According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, approx. 100500 cancers occuring in the US each year can be directly attributed to excess body fat.

I’ll say that again.  Approx. 100500 cancers diagnosis’s in the US each year are directly attributed to excess body fat.

According to the AICR, the estimated number of cancers that are linked to excess body fat each yea rin America alone:

33000 cases of breast cancer

20700 cases of endometrial cancer

5800 cases of esophageal cancer

11900 cases of pancreatic cancer

13900 cases of kidney cancer

2000 cases of gallbladder cancer

13200 cases of colorectal cancer

The figures would be surprisingly similar in Australia percentage wise.

“We now know that carrying excess bodyfat plays a central role in many of the most common cancers.  It’s clearer than ever that obesity’s impact if felt before, during and after cancer – It increases risk, makes treatment more difficult and shortens survival rates.”

Genes are not the major cause of cancer.  If you have cancer in your family, use it as a tool towards prevention.  Make the most of that knowledge and apply healthy living practices in your life every day.

Eat more fruits and vegetables.

Cut out non-nutritious foods like pastas, breads and rice and replace them with foods loaded with good nutrition.

Exercise daily and not only decrease cancer risk, but decrease your risk of heart disease at the same time.

Remember, you don’t have to be huge to be carrying excess body fat.

If you weight has gone up in the last few years (growing children excepted) YOU ARE CARRYING EXCESS BODYFAT.

Get rid of it now and keep it off for good.
