The connection between obesity and cancer risk is clear. An Investigation confirms that excess body fat rises your risk for several cancers, including pancreatic, esophageal, kidney, colorectal, uterine, post-menopausal and breast cancers. What’s less clear is precisely how being obese rises that risk. Experts believe it’s mostly due to the inflammation caused by visceral fat – the fat that surrounds your vital organs. The problem with disproportionate visceral fat is that it disturbs certain processes in your body. This comprises how your body manages hormones, like insulin and estrogen.
