WEIGHT AND CANCER
To say that everyone who gets cancer is overweight would be a vast exaggeration. However, according to research by the American Cancer Society, obesity does raise the risk of postmenopausal breast cancer, colon, esophageal, kidney, pancreatic, uterine, and other cancers. Just one more big reason to watch what you eat and to keep your weight under control. Make changes to your diet gradually and lose that excess weight. Not only will you feel better, you may be reducing your chances of getting a nasty cancer. Cut back on fast food, eat more fruits and vegetables, etc. Make a lifestyle change in your diet! The life you save could be your own!
