Weekly Health Tips

CUT UTERINE CANCER RISK

Posted: 02.26.2018
According to a recent analysis of 37,000 women ages 50-79, losing excess weight may help reduce the risk of uterine cancer, especially for those who are obese. Compared to women whose weight stayed the same, a weight loss of over 5% over 3 years time was linked with a 29% lower risk of developing this type of cancer over the next 11 years. There is a strong association between uterine cancer and excess weight because fat cells produce estrogen, a hormone that increases growth of cells in the lining of the uterus.
