OBESITY AND INCREASED CANCER RISK
A new British study published in this week's The Lancet examines the link between obesity and an elevated risk of cancer, highlighting the the difference in risk between genders and ethnicities.
In a February 15, 2008 US News & World Report article about the above The Lancet study, Dr. Greg Cooper, Professor of Medicine- Gastroenterology at CWRU and UH, discussed the need for people to maintain a healthy weight, but also the importance of physicians conducting earlier screening on obese patients for certain cancers.
