Obesity increases risk of endometrial cancer
Obesity and low physical activity in women may pose them to a high risk of developing endometrial cancer.
The risk of endometrial cancer rose as height increased, but the trend fell short of statistical significance, meaning that it may have just occurred by chance.According to the report, obesity was tied to a heightened risk of endometrial cancer. Obese women were 4.5 times more likely to develop this cancer than their normal-weight peers. Moreover, the more weight a woman gained after 20 years of age, the greater was the risk of acquiring endometrial cancer.
