    (CNN)Excess body weight was responsible for 3.9% of cancer globally, or 544,300 cases, in 2012, according to a new report. The report, published Wednesday in the journal CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, also highlights a relationship between obesity and the risk of 13 cancers, including postmenopausal breast cancer and liver cancer, and a probable relationship with three others, including prostate cancer. "Despite numerous studies on the health effects of overweight/obesity (excess body weight), the message has not been well disseminated. In particular, not many people are aware of the link of overweight/obesity to cancer risk," Hyuna Sung, one of the report's authors and a principal scientist at the American Cancer Society, wrote in an email.The American Cancer Society notes that by 2030, there are expected to be 21.7 million new cancer cases and 13 million cancer deaths around the world. "The future burden will probably be even larger because of the adoption of western lifestyles, such as smoking, poor diet, physical inactivity, and fewer childbirths, in economically developing countries," the group says.

    Being overweight not only can put a person at risk of debilitating diseases like obesity or diabetes, but it can affect their cognitive abilities as well, a new study finds. Researchers from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, performed scans on people to detect levels of body fat and to detect potential brain injuries. Participants were also given cognitive exams to determine overall mental ability. They found a clear trend between people with more body fat and a higher likelihood of suffering a brain injury, and performed worse on the exams. The results have major implications for people who are overweight or obese, which makes a large portion of Americans according to official data. Researchers found a clear correlation between excess body fact, both across the body and around the stomach, and an increased likelihood of having brain lesions or testing poorly on cognitive tests  'It is well documented that increased adiposity is associated with several cardiovascular risk factors, and separately, large-scale epidemiologic studies confirm that cardiovascular risk factors are associated with cognitive impairment,' researchers wrote. 'Adiposity may affect cognitive...

    Obesity has become a worldwide epidemicl that is related to serious consequences, among which the appearance of a long list of chronic diseases stands out. One of the most worrying factors is excess abdominal fat, which beyond being an “aesthetic” problem, is extremely harmful to health. It is one of the most prominent risk factors for metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. The medical term for this type of unhealthy fat that tends to accumulate in the abdomen is “Visceral fat.” This refers to the fat that surrounds the liver and other organs in the abdomen. A very interesting fact in this regard is that it is not a condition that is exclusive to obesity, even people of normal weight with excess abdominal fat have a greater risk of health problems. While losing weight is an essential measure, making a change in lifestyle and certain eating habits is simply essential. Based on this, we took on the task of selecting the worst daily habits that increase abdominal fat by seconds and the risk of contracting all kinds...
    Sarinya Pinngam / EyeEm / Getty Images Fat around the heart, known as pericardial fat, can double the risk of heart failure, a study found. But being lean may not mean you're healthy — even people who aren't obese or overweight can have this type of fat.  To protect your heart, follow a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and mostly unprocessed whole foods.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Having excess fat tissue around your heart could double your risk of heart failure , according to a study published June 1 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.   Researchers from Mount Sinai's Icahn School of Medicine, Wake Forest School of Medicine, and other universities analyzed data from 6,785 older adult men and women over an average span of 16 years, comparing the level of fat around their hearts with their likelihood of developing heart failure.  They found that a higher amount of pericardial fat — or fat tissue surrounding the heart — was linked to a higher risk of developing heart failure. Women with...
    A MUM who has abnormally large legs due to a chronic illness has been refused liposuction by the NHS. Zoe Pearce has lipoedema, an agonising condition which causes a build-up of fat cells in the legs and other parts of the body. 7Zoe Pearce has been refused liposuction on the NHS for lipoedema - a condition which causes excess fat, mostly in the legsCredit: Evening Gazette It makes daily life difficult with very little treatment available.  Only liposuction can remove the excess fat cells, but the NHS says it’s only accessible to those if symptoms are “particularly severe”. Zoe, from Billingham, Stockton-on-Tees, was told she had severe Stage 3 Type 4 of the condition two years ago. But she has watched it progress over 11 years, with excess fat now affecting her legs, breasts, arms and buttocks.  The 29-year-old applied for liposuction surgery on the NHS but was declined in 2019, and her doctor is still waiting to hear after appealing.  Zoe told Teesside Live: “It can’t be changed with diet or exercise, it can only be removed from your...
