Lose Weight To Reduce Your Risk Of Cancer
As if there weren’t enough good reasons to slim down, here’s one worth getting excited about: dodging cancer! A recent study in Cancer Research found that weight loss may help protect against some forms of cancer.
The study showed that post-menopausal overweight or obese women who lost weight had a significant reduction in inflammation, which has been linked to several types of cancer.
The best part?
They found results after the women lost just 5 percent of their overall weight–a realistic goal for everyone.
Bottom line: If you’re overweight, pledge to drop 5 to 10 percent of your total body weight. It’ll calm inflammation in your system, helping reduce your risk of cancer and other nasties like heart disease.
