Being overweight or obese linked to increased risk of eight more cancers 

From MedicalNewsToday:

“A new study strengthens the link between obesity and cancer, after identifying a further eight cancers that are more likely to develop with excess weight, including stomach, pancreas, and liver cancers.

Researchers have associated excess weight with a further eight cancers.

But there is some good news; researchers say losing the excess weight and preventing further weight gain can help lower the risk of these cancers.”

“The researchers found sufficient evidence to suggest excess weight can increase the risk of eight cancers, in addition to the five already identified. These cancers include:

Gall bladder cancer
Liver cancer
Meningioma – a form of brain tumor
Multiple myeloma – a type of blood cancer
Ovarian cancer
Pancreatic cancer
Thyroid cancer”
