Obesity Boosts Cancer Risk

Up to 90,000 cancer deaths a year can be tied to being overweight or obese, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). In a 2003 study, the ACS found that being overweight or obese was linked with most forms of cancer, including cancers of the stomach (in men), liver, pancreas, prostate, cervix, and ovary, as well as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and multiple myeloma. Other studies have linked excess body weight to cancers of the colon, rectum, breast (postmenopausal), uterus, kidney, esophagus, and gallbladder.
