Wolfing down those beers and donuts under the age of 40 can increase your risk of mid-life cancer by as much as 70%. That conclusion and others from a large European study was just published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
Data from 220,000 subjects showed that overweight women had a 70% greater risk of uterine cancer and overweight men a 58% higher risk of kidney cancer but also a 29 percent greater risk of colon cancer.
Moderate your eating throughout life to keep medical disasters like cancer, heart disease, and stroke from your door. Overindulgence when you’re young can not be undone.
