Another indictment against obesity. I think I’ll go take a walk.

Waging war against those extra pounds just might save your life. The leading cause of cancer these days is obesity, according to The Associated Press, with about 1 in 12 new cases of the disease due to excess weight. European researchers say that obesity now accounts for up to 8% of cancers on the continent, according to the AP. “Obesity is catching up at a rate that makes it possible it could become the biggest attributable cause of cancer in women within the next decade,” University of Manchester cancer expert Andrew Renehan told the AP. He spoke this week at a joint meeting of the European Society for Medical Oncology and the European Cancer Organization. – From NY Daily News
