Weight loss in women can reduce the risk of having a serious type of breast cancer
NEW YORK (Reuters)
One study found that losing weight in older women can reduce the risk of having a serious type of breast cancer compared to those who have the same weight and weight. And while long-term obesity is linked to the increased risk of breast cancer, previous research has provided a distorted picture of the possibility of contribution. Weight loss reduces this possibility.
The current study has been carried out on a large number of women over a long period of time. The researchers calculated the BMI of more than 61,000 women twice for three years and then followed their cases for more than 11 years, during which more than 3,000 had breast cancer.
Compared with women who were stable during the first three years of study, those who lost at least five percent of their weight during the next three years were 12 percent less likely to develop the disease during the next decade.
"Our results suggest that women can reduce the risk of developing cancer, even if they are obese after losing weight," said Rowan Chlabowski, of the Hope City Medical Center in Duarte, California, the lead author of the study. … It must be encouraging for women; It is possible that many achieve and maintain a modest weight reduction. "
All women participating in the study came to the stage after the production of estrogen is low and the main source of this hormone is fat tissue, so that obesity increases the risk of cancer because this hormone helps to grow the tumors.
