There is research suggesting the impact obesity has on the development of certain cancers.
According to Sir Richard Doll and Richard Peto, 35% of cancer deaths in the USA might be linked to diet. This is particularly certain for endometrium and breast cancer.
The Washington School of Medicine, submitted a document which explains obesity accounts for about 20% of all cancer cases.
Leukemia is a type of cancer found in blood, bone marrow and is caused by the rapid production of abnormal white blood cells. These abnormal white blood cells are not able to fight infection and impair the ability of the bone marrow to produce red blood cells and platelets.
Leukemia is actually a group of different cancers of the blood cells. Leukemias can be acute or chronic, and people with chronic leukemias may not notice any symptoms before the condition is diagnosed with a blood test.
Sarcoma is a rare cancer in adults (1% of all adult cancers), but prevalent in children (about 20% of all childhood cancers). It is made up of many “subtypes” because it can arise from a variety of tissue structures (nerves, muscles, joints, bone, fat, blood vessels – collectively referred to as the body’s “connective tissues”). Because these tissues are found everywhere on the body, Sarcomas can arise anywhere. Thus, within each site of the more “common” cancers there is the occasional surprise sarcoma diagnosis (e.g., breast sarcoma, stomach sarcoma, lung sarcoma, ovarian sarcoma, etc.). The most frequent location are the limbs since this is where the majority of the body’s connective tissue resides. They are commonly hidden deep in the body, so sarcoma is often diagnosed when it has already become too large to expect a hope of being cured. Although a lot of the lumps and bumps we get are benign, people should have them looked at by a doctor at an early stage in case it is sarcoma.

United we can eradicate the problem
Every year, worldwide, October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year, there are nearly 1.38 million cases and nearly 450 000 deaths from breast cancer. According to the World Health Organization, this type of cancer is the most common in women worldwide. According to the Office of Disease Prevention And Health Promotion, about 1 in 8 women in the United States will get breast Cancer at some point.
Each year in the U.S. over 5.4 million cases of non melanoma skin cancer are treated. Skin cancer is the most common of all human cancers. Cancer occurs when normal cells transform, grow and multiply without normal controls. They form a tumor. Tumors are cancerous only if they are malignant. They encroach on and invade neighboring tissues. Continue reading
