Scaling back: experts say we need to cut obesity rates to combat cancer

Experts from Cancer Research UK have warned that British people are not suffi ciently aware of the link between obesity and cancer. A new report from the charity showed that, when asked which serious health conditions that could be caused by being obese, only one in four people mentioned cancer – whereas CRUK says that having a high BMI is the single biggest preventable cause of cancer after smoking, causing a potential 18,100 cases of cancer every year. The report also showed a lack of awareness about the range of cancers that are caused by obesity – which includes post-menopausal breast cancer, womb and ovarian cancer.
