Type 2 diabetes and obesity putting people at increased risk of cancer

05SCI-NUMBER-master768

A new study published in the Lancet attributes at least 6% of cancers to type 2 diabetes and obesity. It’s very bad news, given our current trends of increasing weights and blood sugars.

Unless diabetes and obesity are much better controlled, the growth in cancers will be significant. “By 2035, because of increases in obesity and diabetes, there could be a 20 percent increase in men’s cancer and a 30 percent increase for women”…

In order to stop the increase in cancer prevalence, we must have effective strategies against obesity and type 2 diabetes. A great starting point could be recommending a real-food low-carb diet.
