“I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”
“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”
“If you are a Human Resources or wellness professional looking to take your employee health and well-being strategies to the next level, the Anticancer Lifestyle Program is unrivaled. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Offering this course to all of our employees really underscores how much we care about them and their loved ones.”
The working group of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) published a report in the New England Journal of Medicine pooled over 1000 epidemiological studies on the impact of excess body weight on the incidence of cancer.
On the basis of the available data, the researchers concluded that the absence of excess body fatness lowers the risk of most cancers. In addition, a review of studies in experimental animals and mechanistic data suggest a causal cancer-preventive effect of intentional weight loss, although evidence in humans remains to be established.
In 2013, an estimated 4.5 million deaths worldwide were caused by overweight and obesity; on the basis of recent estimates, the obesity-related cancer burden represents up to 9% of the cancer burden among women in North America, Europe, and the Middle East.
