Weight gain associated with increased cancer risk

Weight gain associated with increased cancer risk

One of the biggest problems with fatty foods, such as meat, dairy, and fried foods, is that they encourage weight gain. In turn, extra weight increases cancer risk. this is partly because fat tissue produces estrogens. In addition, many carcinogens are stored in fat (both the fats we eat and the fat on our bodies). These carcinogens come from air pollution, tobacco, smoke, other environment contaminants, and foods. Happily, the same plant-based diet that offers so many other protections also helps trim your waistline.
