Am I at risk?

Research shows that overweight and obesity is a risk factor for 13 types of cancer. While a lot of people worry about their cancer risk, only about half of people know about the link between being above a healthy weight and cancer. Eating junk food and being inactive are also risk factors for cancer (and can also lead to weight gain).

Reduce my risk

Eating well and being more active can reduce the risk of certain cancers, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. These actions can also help achieve and maintain a healthy weight - further reducing your risk.

Weight & Cancer

Excess body fat (especially toxic fat around the waist and vital organs) leads to more chemicals and hormones being released into the body. It may also lead to inflammation. This environment makes it more likely that cells will start to divide abnormally, and that a cancer will grow.
