 22,000 Cancer Cases Every Year can be Prevented If People Watch Their Weight



Researchers said that nearly 22,000 cases of ­cancer can be prevented if everyone kept a check on their weight and ensured it is healthy.


The research found that nearly 63% of the population is overweight or obese, which is one of the highest percentages in Europe. This obviously ups the risk of cancers.

Professor Alan Jackson, chairman of the CUP panel and professor of human nutrition at the University of Southampton, said: "A significant number of cancercases could beprevented by ­people maintaining a healthy body weight. By keeping body fat low, a lot of people will avoid getting cancer in the first place - forestalling the pain and anguish associated with the ­disease."
