Ovarian cancer risk rises 6 percent with 5 points BMI

The American Institute for Cancer Research and World Cancer Research Fund just released a report in which researchers studied the link between ovarian cancer and excess body fat.  While others have been studying this subject for years the results have thus far been mixed at best.  This new report is the first to find that being overweight is a “probable” cause of ovarian cancer.

Specifically, it is reported that an increase of only five points in a woman’s body mass index correlates with a six percent increase in risk of ovarian cancer.  Out of the 4 million female participants in the numerous studies that made up the study, 16,000 came to possess ovarian cancer which in actually one of an ever- lengthening list of different cancers connected to excess body fat or obesity.

Other cancers linked to excess body fat include: pancreatic cancer, postmenopausal breast cancer, gallbladder cancer, kidney cancer, esophageal cancer, endometrial cancer and colorectal cancer.  Ovarian cancer is reportedly the deadliest gynecological cancer in the US.  It kills 14,000 women each year.  However, the American Institute for Cancer Research has found that 120,900 women a year simply by “maintaining a healthy weight.”

According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, two-thirds of women in the US are currently overweight if not obese.  Alpa Patel of the American Cancer Society told the press that while the increase in ovarian cancer risk from being obese might seem “modest” to some, the results of this new report remain “significant” in that they give women a way to reduce their risk of contracting cancer.  She concludes: “While this is no magic bullet, any way to reduce the risk of this deadly cancer, especially something like keeping a healthy weight, which has a role in overall cancer prevention, is worth acting on.”
