Obesity and metabolism: Weight gain and the growing risk of cancer
Date:12/7/2007

en though diabetes and obesity are often linked to different types of cancer, our findings illustrate the idea that the link between cancer and metabolic diseases is not the same for every variety of cancer, Lai said. Obviously, having high levels of insulin does not promote health but perhaps such disorders can provide insight into the mechanisms of prostate cancer to help us learn how to eventually prevent prostate cancer.


Post-diagnosis weight change, body mass index, and breast cancer survival. Abstract no. B95:

Gaining weight following a diagnosis of invasive breast cancer could increase a womans risk of death from the disease by more than half, according to researchers leading the Collaborative Womens Longevity Study.

Our findings provide additional support for the benefits of maintaining a healthy weight and exercising, said Hazel B. Nichols, a doctoral student in the Department of Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. According to our results, there is a 14 percent increase in risk for every five kilograms -- about 11 pounds -- of weight gained.

To analyze the effect of weight gain on breast cancer survival, Nichols and her colleagues contacted women who had taken part in one of three previous studies begun in 1988 at sites in Wisconsin, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Between 1998 and 2001, Nichols team surveyed the women about post-diagnosis weight, weight gain, physical activity, diet and related items.

Of the original 4,021 breast cancer patients, the researchers identified 121 breast cancer-related deaths and 428 total deaths.
