Prostate Cancer linked to Waistline Increases

Prostate Cancer linked to Waistline Increases

 

 In a recent study at the University of Oxford 140,000 men across eight counties with a mean age of 52 years for 14 years. At the end of the study, 7,000 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, 934 of the men died.  They also reported that an aggressive form of prostate cancer was exacerbated by obesity.

These findings found there was a 13% increase in the risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer for every 4 inches of waistline gained.  The risk of death was also higher with men who had a high Body Mass Index.  (BMI)
