16 types of CANCER Caused by OVERWEIGHT
The New England Journal of Medicine confirmed previous findings that being OVERWEIGHT will likely cause FIVE types of cancers: COLORECTAL, ESOPHOGEAL, RENAL, BREAST, and UTERINE CANCER.
Now, with more data available, EIGHT MORE CANCERS are added to the list: STOMACH, LIVER, GALLBLADDER, PANCREAS, OVARIAN, THYROID, MENINGIOMA and MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
Three more cancers are also showing links: B-cell LYMPHOMA, PROSTATE, and MALE BREAST CANCERS.
THE REASON: Excess Weight = increases INFLAMMATION and imbalances the SEX HORMONES and Insulin like growth factor IGF-1. According to the research I have been doing for Nature's Detox- inflammation and unhealthy hormones falls significantly when we reduce food intake and or abstain from food completely for periods of time. In fact THE BENEFITS CAN CONTINUE FOR WEEKS EVEN AFTER WE STOP FASTING.
"CALORIC RESTRICTION in overweight animals REDUCES CANCERS OF THE BREAST, COLON, LIVER, PANCREAS, SKIN and PITUITARY GLAND notes the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).
Data from 2013, estimates that 4.5 MILLION CANCER DEATHS could have been AVOIDED worldwide by treating the UNDERLYING CAUSE= EXCESS WEIGHT!
