Obesity and Cancer Risk Among Women

The link between obesity and a higher risk of developing various forms of cancer has been well drawn. When it comes to women, you may be shocked at how significant that increased risk is.

According to data from Cancer Research UK, 274 in every 1,000 obese women are expected to develop some form of weight-related cancer—such as bowel, postmenopausal breast or kidney—during their lifetime. “Healthy-weight” women fare much better, with 194 out... of 1,000 likely to receive a cancer diagnosis. That means obese women are 41% more likely to develop cancer than those with a healthy weight. The report also estimated that weight could be associated with 18,000 new cancer cases each year.

“We know that our cancer risk depends on a combination of our genes, our environment and other aspects of our lives, many of which we can control—helping people understand how they can reduce their risk of developing cancer in the first place remains crucial in tackling the disease,” says Julie Sharp, PhD, head of health information at Cancer Research UK, in a press release.

We know there are many benefits to regular exercise. After sifting through study after study, professors at the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in the United Kingdom have labeled exercise a miracle cure.

The organization, which “speaks on standards of care and medical education across the UK,” recently released a report titled Exercise: The Miracle Cure and the Role of the Doctor in Promoting It. The goal of the report, according to professor Dame Sue Bailey, who chairs the... academy, is to provide doctors with tools that will help them promote exercise to patients. One of the benchmarks of the report explains just how valuable physical activity is as a preventive measure against a wide range of diseases and ailments.

Because we can always use more ammunition to motivate clients, here is a breakdown of some of the benefits of exercise, according to the report:
•31% reduction in cardiac mortality
•90% improvement in self-esteem and well-being (from outdoor activity)
•25%–53% reduction in pain symptoms among osteoarthritis patients
•57% lower rate of prostate cancer progression
•at least 10 mm Hg drop in blood pressure among 31% of patients
•50%–80% reduction in risk of developing type 2 diabetes
•30%–50% reduction in risk of falls among older adults
•30% lower all-cause mortality rate
•45% reduction in risk of bowel cancer
