Revealing a direct relationship between excess weight and a very serious disease

A recent study published by The New England Journal of Medicine showed a direct relationship between being overweight and the incidence of many types of cancer.

The study, which was also published by the British newspaper Daily Mail, included more than 100 people in the United States of America, and its results showed that physical fitness is not enough to prevent cancer if the person is overweight.

The results also indicated that people whose weight exceeds the normal rate by 15% or more are at a 50% risk of developing many types of cancer, including tumors of the breast, colon, stomach, and gallbladder.

The study explains the link between increased body fat and its secretion of hormones and chemicals that affect the process of inflammation and cellular growth in the body, which raises the risk of cancerous tumors appearing.
