Everyone’s life will have a probability of 1/5 of the probability of cancer. When it comes to cancer, many people do not want to hear. After all, everyone now “talks about cancer color changes.”
However, we still have to talk about cancer. Everyone knows that obesity is a high -risk factor for carcinogenic cancer. It is really more likely to suffer from colorectal cancer, and it is also related to gender. The American Cancer Association shows that colorectal cancer is one of the third most common cancers and the third most important cause of cancer death in the United States.
A study published on BMC Medicine found that different gender risk of suffering from colorectal cancer is different.
What are the differences? Let’s talk today.
The researchers checked the genes of more than 100,000 people and found that the impact of body fat content on the risk of colorectal cancer was different.
The research team from the University of Bristol and the International Cancer Research Institutions said that the risk of intestinal cancer with higher waist and hips will increase by 25%. And men’s higher BMIs also increase the risk of cancer, but risks vary depending on women, depending on the proportion of fat.
If a woman is an apple -type figure, that is, there are more abdominal fat, which will increase the risk of colorectal cancer.
In addition, for men, their weight increases by an average of 20 pounds than usual, and the chance of suffering from colorectal cancer will increase by 23%.
Everyone may know that overweight or obesity will increase the risk of at least 12 different types of cancer, including colorectal cancer.
How to prevent cancer?
In fact, a healthy diet helps reduce the risk of cancer, reduce weight by better diet, and quit harmful habits. Maintain healthy weight, eat more fiber foods, eat less red meat and process meat, drink less and do not smoke to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. In addition, early diagnosis of colorectal cancer can save life to a certain extent, and screened colorectal cancer early to reduce the mortality of colorectal cancer.
