Cancer Linked To Obesity

Breaking News! The World Cancer Research Fund has just issued a report (based on 7,000 studies worldwide !) saying that there IS a link between obesity and cancer. Stay slim and stay alive ! They found this link in six types of cancer. Avoid too much wine and red meat is the key message.

Maximum of two small glasses a wine a day for a man and just one for a woman.

Not more than 500 gr of red meat a week.

Avoid processed meats like ham and bacon- eat very little if you can.

Breastfeeding for the first six months is a plus - helps prevent breast cancer.

Why is body fat so bad ? Basically there is a link- fat cells release estrogen and growth hormones and these are risky. This fat includes belly fat!

The report makes 10 recommendations including 30 minutes of moderate activity a day, rising to 60 minutes; drinking water rather than sugary drinks; eating fruit, vegetables and fiber and limiting salt consumption.
