Obesity and Oncology

The link between obesity and risk for several kinds of cancer is currently well established by over a decade of scientific research. Overweight or obesity is liable for nearly twenty fifth of the relative contribution to cancer incidence that ranks second solely to tobacco use. Obesity is strongly tied to several of the most common types of cancers, are post-menopausal carcinoma, colorectal cancer and cancers of the endometrium, kidney, thyroid and bladder. However, evidence is less convincing and somewhat controversial for prostate cancer, lung cancer and pre-menopausal breast cancer; several studies report an inverse relationship between obesity and these particular cancers.
