Obesity 'linked to 10 cancers' | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

Being overweight and obese puts people at greater risk of developing 10 of the most common cancers, according to research in the Lancet medical journal. Scientists calculated individuals carrying this extra weight could contribute to more than 12,000 cases of cancer in the UK population every year. They warn if obesity levels continue to rise there may be an additional 3,700 cancers diagnosed annually.The study of five million people is the largest to date to confirm the link.

Multivitamins Modestly Lower Cancer Risk

Multivitamins Modestly Lower Cancer Risk | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

Daily use of a common multivitamin modestly reduced the risk for cancer in a long-term study of nearly 15,000 men.

Researchers cautioned the reduction in risk in the new study was small and that the mainstay prevention strategies against the disease remained quitting smoking, avoiding obesity, eating a healthy diet and keeping physically active.
