Will You Get Cancer? Here’s How to Tell
Cancer is killing 600,000 Americans a year – that’s one a minute!
And do you know what really breaks my heart?
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Most cancers are a product of your environment—not your genetics—which means you have the power to prevent this disease.
And there’s one risk factor, totally within your control, that plays a big role in determining whether you get cancer.
It’s not smoking… it’s not drinking… in fact, it may not be something you’d think of at all.
Most people know that obesity increases the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
But did you know that being overweight contributes to cancer in a HUGE way?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently put together a report based on data from the US Cancer Statistics database to get a better picture of the connection between cancer and obesity.
And it wasn’t pretty.
It turns out that obesity accounts for 40 percent of all cancer diagnoses in the U.S.—and is associated with an increased risk of 13 specific types of cancer.
This is especially problematic for women.
While 24 percent of cancers in men are linked to being overweight, as many as 55 percent of cancers in women are related to being overweight—including breast and ovarian cancer.
Researchers still don’t understand why there is such a strong connection between obesity and cancer, but there are many factors at play.
People who are overweight tend to have a more toxic environment, including eating cancer-causing junk and processed food.
Being overweight increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, which increases the risk of numerous cancers, including liver, pancreas, colorectal, breast, and bladder cancer.
Fat cells are also highly inflammatory. And as you know by now, inflammation is a key underlying factor not just in cancer, but in virtually every other disease as well.
The good news is that losing weight can help reduce the risk of numerous cancers.
If you’ve been putting off making the changes necessary to shed those extra pounds, I can’t think of a better reason to start today.
Limit your carbs, load up on healthy proteins, and make sure you’re getting regular exercise. Every pound you lose may take you a step closer to avoiding cancer.
To a brighter day,
Dr. Richard Gerhauser, M.D.
