The reason people are getting 12 types of cancers?

A New Report from the European Obesity Society (WCRF: World Cancer Research Fund International) has shown that overweight and obesity are direct and indirect factors in cancer. The report shows that there are 12 types of cancers that can be caused by being overweight or obese. These are WCRF’s report and summarized as follows: Having sugary drinks regularly leads to weight gain, overweight–obesity, increasing the risk of cancer.

Choose foods that are beneficial to the body

By doing physical activity is a direct preventive measure against cancer in the intestines (colon), breast (postmenopausal), uterus (endometriosis), and eating healthy diet foods, such as whole wheat, vegetables, fruits; less red meat; less processed meats reduce the risk of cancer.

Alcohol intake is directly related to the increased risk of six cancers, such as colon cancer, breast cancer, liver cancer, oral cancer and throat cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer.

In addition, cancers that the risk can be increased from being overweight include ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, gallbladder cancer, kidney cancer, pancreatic cancer, uterine cancer, etc. were in the list.

Obesity concept

Currently, one in six people worldwide die of cancer each year. As more countries follow the “Western lifestyle”, experts point out this number will increase further. In 2012, there were 14 million cancer cases worldwide, with 8.2 million deaths, representing about 13 percent of the total deaths. This is an 8.4% increase in five years, and WHO (World Health Organization) predicts that by 2030 there will be 21 million cancer cases and 13 million deaths. Part of the bigger problem pointed out in cancer risk is the fact that the most obese age group is in the 60s, and 39% of them is obese.

Dr. Panagiota Mitrou, who is in charge of WCRF’s research fund and foreign relations, said, “Our research shows that certain foods or nutrients are not an important factor in causing or preventing cancer, but rather that various forms of diet and physical activity should be combined.” “This New Preventive Report will be a clear evidence to support what has been consistently asserted over the past few decades.” He added.
