The Link Between Fat and Cancer

"Everyone seems to know that being overweight and obese is bad for your health, but many people don’t know exactly why. Increased cancer risk is just one reason, but a big and important one.

"Data indicate 14% of cancer deaths in men and up to 20% of cancer deaths in women are attributable to obesity. A 2002 comprehensive expert review by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the same body that classifies carcinogens, concluded that, globally, obesity is a cause of 11% of colon cancer cases; 9% of postmenopausal breast cancer cases; 39% of endometrial cancer cases; 25% of kidney cancer cases; and 37% of esophageal cancer cases."

this was such a good show, and really scary. The organs affected most by cancer due to weight are liver, pancreas, uterus, colon and kidneys. Not gaining any more weight is much as important as loosing weight! and loosing is very very important. cancer affected by smoking is as high as cancer affected by obesity/overweight! this was such a huge awakening show!

Thank u dr Oz, u scared me again!

    Saw this show too. It is really scary. I am trying to lose the weight and not gain anymore. I am doing okay with the not gaining, although I lose a few and then gain them back and then lose them again. I am not making big strides in the weight loss department.

    As a survivor of endometrial cancer, that's really scary.

    Thanks for the warning ... I love to watch the Dr. Oz show whenever I'm off from work, and respect his opinions.
