On Friday, November 6, 2009, Reuters posted Obesity Causes 100,000 U.S. Cancer Cases. “Obesity causes more than 100,000 cases of cancer in the United States each year — and the number will likely rise as Americans get fatter.

Having too much body fat causes nearly half the cases of endometrial cancer — a type of cancer of the uterus — and a third of esophageal cancer cases, the American Institute for Cancer Research said.

Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease. The American Cancer Society projects that 1.47 million people will be diagnosed with cancer this year and 562,000 will die of it.

More than 26 percent of Americans are obese and nearly a third of Americans are overweight.
The study combined findings from American Institute for Cancer Research linking diet, physical activity and fatness with cancer risk with national surveys on obesity and cancer incidence. “We then worked out the percentage of those specific cancers that would be prevented if everyone in the United States maintained a healthy weight,” the group said in a statement.

Here are some of its estimates of cancer types that could be prevented annually if Americans stayed slender:

  • Esophageal – 35% of cases or 5,800 people
  • Pancreatic – 28% or 11,900
  • Gallbladder – 21%or 2,000
  • Colon – 9% or 13,200
  • Breast – 17% or 33,000
  • Endometrium – 49% or 20,700
  • Kidney – 24% or 13,900

In July, federal and other researchers estimated that obesity-related diseases account for nearly 10 percent of all medical spending in the United States or an estimated $147 billion a year.” Read Obesity Causes 100,000 U.S. Cancer Cases. Obesity.

In most cases, obesity is preventable by changing behaviors. According to this study, many cases of cancer could be prevented if people would lose weight.

Note: Statements and testimonials are representative of our top active participants using hypnosis. Some people may make little or no change with hypnosis. Why? It does take effort to make change (in any system) and it just won’t happen if you do not learn and apply the tools. Worse, some people never even complete the training and sessions and therefore never see any results. These claims are not a guarantee of your change, and may not be average of participants. Individual results will vary greatly and in accordance to your commitment, effort, determination, hard work, and ability to follow directions. Summary: As in any self-change program and with everything in life – you get out what you put in.
