Obesity and Cancer

appetite-1239056_1280

This is a topic I am very passionate about because while many things in life are out of our control, what we choose to consume and do with our free time (having an active life-style, or not) is something we have a great deal of control over.  On that note, I think it is critical to be aware of the health impacts our bodies face if we are obese.  The good thing about our body weight, is that we can choose to take charge, choose a different path, and make better choices…. beginning today.  Today, we can be healthier.  Today we can take a step toward a longer life expectancy.

Below is an excerpt from an article I found very interesting (see link below).

“A study published Thursday in The New England Journal of Medicine found excess weight was linked to eight additional types of cancer— stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, ovary, the brain tumor meningioma, thyroid cancer and multiple myeloma— after reviewing more than 1,000 related studies.”
