Obesity ‘To Be Linked to More Female Cancers’ Than Smoking

If the numbers continue at the same rate they are now, obesity will overtake smoking as the No. 1 cause of female cancers by 2043, BBC reports. The numbers are especially grim because, like smoking, obesity is something you can avoid. Researchers noted that, while obesity is common among men, too, it seems to be a greater driver in female cancer risk. They also hinted that adult obesity begins in childhood, as being overweight as a child puts you at five times the risk of being overweight as an adult.

Almost daily you can find a doom-and-gloom message like this, and each time the news bulletin points to the fact that science agrees cancer is truly a metabolic disease. But you needn’t lose heart: The good news is that once you understand this, you can address it — and it doesn’t mean starving yourself for the rest of your life in the hopes of avoiding (or fighting) cancer.

As I explain in my book, “Fat for Fuel,” and expand on in my upcoming book, “Superfuel,” one of the first steps toward fighting both obesity and cancer is to learn how to reprogram your body so you’re burning fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates in the form of refined sugars and grains and proteins. Once you do that, you’re well on your way to better health and reducing your weight.

But the best news of all is burning fat for fuel through a cyclical ketogenic diet isn’t difficult at all. Coupled with other lifestyle measures, such as exercising more, getting regular sun exposure and avoiding pesticides, herbicides and genetically engineered foods, a ketogenic diet can help you on your road to health. If you’re unsure of how to get started on a ketogenic diet, or need some help if you’re already on it, be sure to visit me live on Facebook Wednesday, at 3:30 p.m., where I’ll be answering all your questions about this eating lifestyle, as you ask them.
