Wide range of cancers now linked to being overweight
Conclusion The results of this study provide further evidence for the link between increasing levels of fat and the risk of developing certain cancers. There was strong evidence for nine cancers, with another two – ovarian cancer and stomach cancer – included when comparing obesity with healthy weight. This study is important in showing the significance of fat levels and obesity in cancer risk. But there are some important things to consider: The study doesn't tell us how excess body fat might play a role in the development of certain cancers, just that there's a link. Some studies might have been missed, as the review relied on other researchers to include all the most recent and relevant studies in their meta-analyses. Other studies were statistically significant but of mixed quality, so it's possible excess fat is linked to other cancers, but the evidence was not quite as strong as for the cancers the study identified. While the findings of this study may be worrying, it's important to focus on the positives. Losing any excess weight should help reduce your risk of developing these types of cancer, as well as other chronic diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Authors: Zhylkaidarova A, Kaidarova D, Batyrbekov K, Shatkovskaya O, Begimbetova D Abstract We carried out an analysis of the total incidence of colon cancer throughout Kazakhstan. Retrospectively, according to the regional reports on endoscopic screening, the study showed an increase in the age-related incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) cases from 2004-2008 to 2009-2014. The peak of morbidity in both periods was noted in the age category of>70 years. The indicators of the territorial distribution of CRC incidence make it possible to divide the regions into areas with low or high rates of CRC. Specific indicat...

It’s been enough for a bit, isn’t it? For three months now, there has been little space in the world for any other kind of news. That is, news without the word ‘coronavirus’. But there was innovation, there is excitement and, well, even some weird (although useful!) inventions that appeared while the world has been in lockdown. So here’s an outlook on such news, all, promise, without that particular C-word. Hospitals have been facing great challenges recently. But they are on the verge of a new era that brings better care and more focus on the patient. This is a trend we have been talking a...
