From Washington - Obesity raises risk of prostate cancer in African American men, according to a report published in JAMA Oncology. Researchers studied over 35,000 men, 3,400 of whom were African American. The study found that black men who were obese were at 122% increased risk of low grade prostate cancer and 81% increased risk of high grade prostate cancer. This increased risk was much higher than obese non-Hispanic white men.
