Obesity Linked to 12 Types of Cancer in New Report

"This means that for those kids that you can, in school healthcare, catch and if you can change their trajectory during puberty you can do a lot for their risk of colon cancer". A Business Insider report about the WCRF advice noted processed meat and booze, even in small amounts, can lead to many different types of cancer. It's also important not to rely on supplements and nutritional needs should be met through diet alone where possible.

Reversing a historic trend, rates of lung cancer among younger white and Hispanic women have surpassed those of men - and the change can not be fully explained by gender differences in smoking behavior, researchers said Wednesday.

They discovered that one in six deaths worldwide is due to cancer. But being physically active was found to directly protect against cancers of the bowel, womb and, post-menopause, breast, as well as cutting the wider risk of developing other cancers. It increases the risk of bowel, breast, liver, mouth and throat, oesophagus and stomach cancer.

The WCRF updated the health guidelines after compiling health data on more than 51 million people.

Although the study couldn't prove cause and effect, obesity was tied to a rise in the risk of postmenopausal breast cancer by 20 percent and kidney cancer by 95 percent.

Sleep expert: Weekend sleep-in's good but not a total fix
People who slept too much, regularly conking out for eight hours or longer a night, also had a worse mortality rate. For those over 65, the researchers found no association between sleep durations and mortality risk.

Avoiding obesity as well as maintaining a stable weight in middle adulthood could help prevent certain cancers in women, according to new research presented at this year's European Conference on Obesity (ECO) in Vienna, Austria (23-26 May).

By following avoiding processed meat, red meat, and dairy, as well as other factors like avoiding sugary drinks and large quantities of alcohol, and committing to regular exercise, the WCRF claims that one can reduce the risk of cancer by 40 percent. The non-profit cancer prevention research organization released its findings in its third expert report titled "Diet, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Cancer: a Global Perspective", which researchers have dubbed the "blueprint" to beat the disease.

A separate presentation at the conference suggests that obesity plays a part in malignant melanoma - a form of skin cancer that is the fifth most common in the United Kingdom, causing 2,000 deaths a year.

'There is no level of consumption below which there is no increase in the risk of at least some cancers, ' the authors said. The WCRF recommends reducing the intake of food high in fat, starches, and sugars.

"It's clear we need an environment that supports and encourages healthy choices, rather than steering us towards unhealthy options with constant adverts, promotions and offers", she said.
