Obesity now linked to 12 different cancers

Only moderate amounts of red meat should be included in the diet, the guidance states, adding: "Eat little, if any, processed meat". High weight gain (defined as an increase of 10kg or more in 6 years) was associated with a 36% increased risk of postmenopausal breast cancer, a 40% increased risk of endometrial cancer.

Compared to women of normal weight, those with obesity are 24% more likely to develop one of a handful of cancers linked to the condition, and their chances of developing cancers of the kidney or endometrium were around twice as high as those of normal-weight women, new research has found.

It is impossible to work out how many cancer-free years a better lifestyle could buy people, says WCRF, but a spokesperson said "we do know that around 40% of cancer cases are preventable and that eating a healthy diet, being more active each day and maintaining a healthy weight are - after not smoking - the most important ways you can reduce your cancer risk". Its analysis linked alcohol to the development of bowel, breast, liver, mouth and throat, oesophagus and stomach cancer. In addition to keeping away from pork and booze, the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) recommends other lifestyle habits which can also reduce the risk of developing the disease.

"Our research shows it's unlikely that specific foods or nutrients are important single factors in causing or protecting against cancer", said Dr Kate Allen, WCRF's executive director of science and public affairs. Processed meats like bacon increase risk of colorectal, lung, stomach, pancreas, and esophagus. "Our evidence suggests the greatest risk is for people who consume no or hardly any vegetables or fruit", said Dr.Rachel Thompson, WCRF's Head of Research Interpretation. Do you think cutting out foods could prevent your risk of cancer?
