Maintain a Healthy Weight to Prevent Cancer

A Professor and advisor for the World Cancer Research Fund named Dr Wiseman stated that most cancers of the breast, bowel, kidney, pancreas, esphagus and womb are related to being overweight, with a BMI (body mass index a measure of your weight for height) over 25. In fact if your in the higher end of normal you will have 15 % greater risk of colon cancer.
This ties in nicely with my last post, we should all be inspired by the 3 musketeers and others who are trying to get in shape.

Eat a healthy diet with occasional treats, getting the balance of calories consumed with calories expended with activity right to maintain a healthy weight.
