Around 80,000 cancer cases driven by obesity and diabetes

around 80000 cancer cases driven by obesity and diabetes

It is very important to stay healthy and fit, as obesity and diabetes increase the risk of cancer.

“Diabetes and having a high body mass index or BMI cause nearly 6-percent of cancers worldwide,” medical news reported by quoting the study published in the Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.

Dr Jonathan Pearson-Stuttard, author of the study said that 80,000 cancer cases each year were attributable to overweight, obesity and diabetes.

The cancer risk is increased by Diabetes and Obesity as it affects sugar levels, inflammation and hormones. The researcher said people should start getting healthy otherwise the number of cancer cases related to diabetes and high BMI is likely to keep increasing.

Meantime, the number of women who suffered from the joint pain, the risk factors was nearly twice as bigger than that of men. In the majority of all cases, women were suffering from breast cancer, which was amounting to roughly 30 percent. While men mostly suffered from liver cancer in 42.8 percent of the instances.

The increases in diabetes from 1980 to 2002 led to a quarter of all 2012 cases, whereas excessive weight is responsible for another 30 percent. Given the surge of these triggers, “clinical and public health efforts should focus on identifying preventive and screening measures for populations and for individual patients,” the researcher said.

“It is important that effective food policies are implemented to tackle the rising prevalence of diabetes, high BMI and the diseases related to these risk factors.”
