Blog Updates for December 2014

Jan 1, 2015. In WCRF/AICR Diet and Cancer Report we added: In November of 2014 an update to the original report was published with the following main conclusions. From their web site:
  • "There is strong evidence that being overweight or obese increases the risk of advanced prostate cancer (being overweight or obese is assessed by body mass index (BMI), waist circumference and waist-hip ratio)."
  • "There is strong evidence that developmental factors in the womb, childhood, and adolescence that influence growth are linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer (the taller a man is, the greater his risk of prostate cancer)."
  • "There is strong evidence that consuming beta-carotene (either through food or supplements) is unlikely to have a substantial effect on the risk of prostate cancer."
