Cancer Really Likes Fat Cells

In the NFL, a scramble for a fumble usually results in a horde of players trying to get the football.

But when a player is late to the party and "piles on," his team is issued a 15-yard penalty.

Clearly, piling on is never a good thing, especially if you're overweight or obese and piling on bad food choices.

We've known for a while that your risk for some cancers goes up as you gain weight: For women, it boosts breast, endometrial and ovarian cancer; for men prostate; and for everyone, colon, renal (kidney), esophageal, pancreatic, thyroid, and gallbladder cancers.

But just recently, a meta-study put together by the International Agency for Research on Cancer determined that the risks for stomach and liver cancer, meningioma (a type of brain tumor), breast cancer in men, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma (a blood cancer) also go up as the pounds pile on.

It seems that cancer really likes fat cells.

So stay away from all trans and most saturated fats, any added sugars or syrups, and any grain isn't 100 percent whole.

Pair those good eating habits with an exercise or walking regimen aiming for 10,000 steps a day.

A new study in “JAMA Internal Medicine” found that regular exercise produces a 7 percent lower risk of developing any type of cancer and a 20 percent lower risk of cancers of the esophagus, lung, kidney, stomach, and endometrium.
