Default Obesity-related cancers on the rise in the US

New CDC report released yesterday:

Cancers associated with overweight are making up a greater and greater proportion of cancer diagnoses globally, a new report finds. These cancers are, not surprisingly, getting more common as the obesity epidemic progresses.

The common link? Most likely growth factors like insulin.

It’s interesting when we talk about cancer in this country, we talk about beating cancer and the cancer moonshot initiative, but all of these things are focused on treating cancer, curing cancer. What we need to talk about is preventing cancer, eating better.
– Professor Theodore Brasky
