From France - A new report published in The Lancet Oncology estimates that in 2012 worldwide, nearly half a million cancers were closely linked to excess body weight. With data from 184 countries, researchers estimated the proportion of cancers that could be attributed to the increasing average BMI. 64% of these additional cancers occurred in North America and Europe. The researchers also found clear gender separation with approximately 70% of these new obesity related cancers occurring in women, 30% in men.
