Obesity is the most common cause of cancer that we can prevent.
It was stated by scientists of Cancer Research UK, a British charity organization engaged in cancer research.
Due to obesity, bowel, ovarian, kidney, and liver cancers can develop. This cause is considered the second most dangerous after smoking.
The third one is exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
“This study confirms that obesity is the new smoking, and the National Health Service can’t win the battle against the bulge on its own.
Families, food businesses, and government all need to play their part,” the head of the National Health Service of England said.
Scientists consider that obesity can cause at least 13 different types of cancers, including stomach, colon and rectum, pancreas, kidneys, breast, ovaries, uterus, as well as respiratory tract and bone marrow.
“We know that obesity leads to hormonal disruptions and metabolic problems.
It contributes to an increase in estrogen and insulin levels and the growth of inflammatory processes, which affects the processes of cell division,” Mark Ganter from the International Agency for Research on Cancer said.
The good news is that you can take control of your life and health.
