YCN Blog – The importance of maintaining a healthy weight in cancer prevention
The latest YCN blog mirrors the theme of this month’s EONS cancer prevention campaign, PrEvCan, – Take Action to be a Healthy Body Weight. The link between obesity and cancer is complex; however, there is strong evidence that being above a healthy weight is a risk factor for some cancers. Excess body fat (especially toxic or visceral fat around the waist and vital organs) leads to more chemicals and hormones being released. It may also lead to inflammation. The blog will give you lots of tips on how to approach this important factor for health and cancer prevention.
