Why are the current generation suffering from obesity and cancer?


Obesity is now becoming a common problem. We see a lot of people around us who do not have weight control and we do not take this problem very seriously. But obesity is a risk factor for many diseases.

Cancer is one of them. Obesity is a significant problem in some places and is affecting people of all ages. Obesity can significantly shorten an individual’s lifespan.

Obesity and plumpness are not just overweight but invite many other diseases, experts say. We need to pay serious attention to this.

Wrong lifestyle, stress, insufficient sleep, lack of exercise, increasing use of TV and mobile, increasing consumption of sugary foods have led to obesity not only in adults but also in young children.

Obesity is on the rise not only in cities but also in rural areas. Lifestyle is one of the risk factors for cancer, one of which is obesity.

Obesity is the excess of body fat. Obesity is seen in children, women and men of all ages.

Obesity is a risk factor for which type of cancer :


Wrong lifestyle, lack of exercise, sedentary work, wrong eating times, heredity, hormonal, emotional, environmental factors are all factors that increase the risk of obesity.


Obesity also increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. In obese individuals, inflammation occurs due to fat around the vital organs.


Gaining weight and the risk of cancer Gaining weight can also increase the risk of cancer. Obesity increases insulin levels. In obese people, tissue fat produces more estrogen and increases the risk of breast and endometrial cancer. Fat cells affect the processes that control the growth of these cancer cells.

Excess weight and obesity increase the risk of many types of cancer. Body fat can increase the risk of cancers of the intestine, liver, stomach, colorectal, breast, uterus, esophagus, kidneys, ovaries, thyroid, multiple myeloma, brain and pancreas.

BMI and obesity :


The most important thing to reduce the risk of many diseases, including cancer, is to control your weight.

In general, the ratio of person to height in determining obesity determines whether a person is obese or not.


This BMI is the person's BMI = weight divided by kilogram divided by the height square in meters.

But generally a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered appropriate.

25 to 29.5 BMI is considered overweight and having a BMI above 30 is a sign of obesity. To reduce obesity, it is necessary to control weight and make lifestyle changes.
