Overweight causes cancer

Major new research shows 20% of cancer deaths in women
are caused by being overweight


Overweight -- not just obesity, but being overweight -- accounts for 14 to 20% of deaths by cancer, report researchers in a major new study, (Overweight, obesity, and mortality from cancer in a prospectively studied cohort of US adults, 2003, Calle).

Reliable Research

This wasn't a small, out-of-context study. Over 900,000 adults were studied over 16 years. And the researchers estimate that more than 90,000 cancer deaths each year could be avoided if every American maintained a healthy weight.

Researchers report; "we estimate that current patterns of overweight and obesity in the U.S. could account for 14 percent of all deaths from cancer in men and 20 percent of those in women."

The study shows that the risk of dying from cancer from being overweight is 52% greater than men of normal weight, and 62% higher for women.

The Take Home

It's extremely important that you fight excessive bodyfat and defeat the weight-gain associated with the middle-age somatopause.

The commercials on TV say it's easy. They are lying to you! It's tough to lose weight. But you can do it. And you'll love the benefits of your hard work.

Successful weight loss plans will have at least 3 hours a week for exercise, and call for a balanced diet in moderation. Level One of the fitness plans in my book takes 3.5 hours per week.

There's not an easy way. Fad diets don't work! They'll leave you with more bodyfat than when you started. The only thing that's lighter is your wallet.

Millions have successfully lost weight, and kept it off when they followed a commonsense, balanced diet - in moderation, long-term approach coupled with a planned exercise program.

Make the commitment today to follow the 3.5 hour per week Ready, Set, Go fitness plan for eight-weeks.
