Obesity and Cancer

Posted by on October 23rd, 2017 Posted in: Chronic Disease

A recent issue of CDC’s Vital Signs highlighted the link between obesity and some types of cancer. This article explains that while there are 13 types of cancer associated with obesity, over half of Americans aren’t aware of this link. Vital Signs also provides infographics about recent trends in obesity related cancers as well as information about what can be done to address this health concern at the individual, community, state and federal level.
