Link between Cancer and Weight

One of the largest medical studies ever undertaken was published in the British Medical Journal and links cancer to body weight. The study tracked the health of 1.2 million women age 50-64 since 1996, looked at the relationship between cancer and BMI -- a function of weight compared to height, and it confirmed what scientist had suspected: excess weight can give you cancer, especially cancer of the esophagus, endometrium, ovary, kidney and pancreas, as well as leukemia, multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

The typical western diet is full of saturated fat, cholesterol and sugars, contributing to the increasing rates of obesity world-wide. On the contrary, a well- balanced plant-based diet tends to help people attain a healthy weight while showing compassion, mercy and peace toward all of God's Creation.
