End of The Month

I hope you had a chance to watch the Dr. Oz show episode last week on "Fat and Cancer". There is new research that indicates that excess fat “is a breeding ground for some of the most feared cancers such as cancer of the pancreas, kidney cancer and cancer of the uterus". If you didn’t see it, maybe you can catch it on-line or later as a re-run. Just to keep us all up to date, I’ll quote a few facts.

  • 20% of the cancer deaths among women are linked to obesity.
  • Any amount of pounds overweight is an increase in risk of cancer.
  • We all know that smoking increases risk of cancer 30%, but being overweight and sedentary also increases the risk to 30%.

If you need motivation to lose weight and exercise, this is it!
