Obesity to become the biggest cause of cancer

Obesity is set to overtake smoking as the biggest preventable cause of cancer in women – giving a serious incentive to those looking to lose weight.

Smoking has long been the number one preventable cause of cancer. However, a recent report from Cancer Research UK predicts that – as obesity continues to rise while the number of smokers falls –being obese will become the biggest risk factor for women by 2043.
