Excess Weight Linked to Cancer

In January 2019, after a decade of debate, researchers determined that they'd found the missing link between “Lucy,” the 3-million-year-old skeleton discovered in 1974 by paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and “handy man” Homo habilis, the 2.1-million-year-old tool user discovered between 1962-1964.

The link, called Australopithecus sediba,”spent significant time climbing in trees, perhaps for foraging and protection from predators,” according to the study published in the journal Paleoanthropology.

Unfortunately, for far too many people, no amount of evidence has proven that there’s also a link between excess weight and cancer, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research.

Excess weight is definitely linked to cancers of the colon and rectum, esophagus, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, ovaries, endometrium, breasts, and thyroid, as well as meningioma and multiple myeloma.

There's also evidence that prostate cancer, breast cancer in men, and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma are associated with excess body fat.

And if you've had cancer, excess weight increases the risk of recurrence and death.

So dig deep (like paleontologists) and make these smart, obesity- and cancer-fighting choices:

1. Cut out processed and red meats, along with added sugars and syrups and processed grains. Eat seven to nine servings of fruits and veggies daily.

2. Go for 30 minutes of exercise five days a week and two 20-30 minute strength-training sessions weekly.

3. Control your stress response with daily meditation and seven to eight hours of sleep nightly.
