Cancer Risk Pronounced in Women With an Ample Waist

An international study has pointed out that women with a 34 inch waist carry twice the risk of ailing cancer of the womb, as compared// to women who boast of trimmer waists.

Nearly 5500 women suffer endometrial cancer every year, a rate that has gone up by 19% as compared to the figures in 1990. Women fifty years ago were much trimmer and therefore did not suffer the grave risks encountered by the present lot.

Researchers have confirmed the immense benefits to health when women lose at least 3 inches or more from their prosperous waists. This would also cut the risks of developing the disease by more than 50%.

A study of involving 223,000 women from ten European countries revealed that women with a body mass index of 30 or more and who have gained more than 44lb from the time they turned 20, carry a pronounced risk of endometrial cancer. Scientists also found a prominent connection between post menopausal women and women who had not undergone hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Dr Lesley Walker, director of cancer information for Cancer Research UK, said “According to the National Sizing Survey conducted in 2004 the average British woman now has a 34in waist, which is over 6in bigger than the average size of a woman in the 1950s, when it was 27.5in. Today's women are larger than they were when they existed on a wartime diet and were generally more active and this is having serious consequences for their health. The results of this study confirm that women carrying excess weight are much more likely to develop endometrial cancer than those women who are a normal weight."

Professor John Toy, medical director of Cancer Research UK, said: "While the general link between obesity and cancer is known, this study adds specific evidence that overweight women face a significantly increased risk of endometrial cancer.”

This study underlines the importance of maintaining a healthy weight by consuming a low-fat, high-fiber diet that encompasses fruits and vegetables in abundance. Regular exercise and a proper diet is a proven method of reducing the risk of cancer.
