Obesity Linked to Cancer, Heart Attack and Miscarriage

Posted Oct 14 2008 4:13am

Obesity is a HUGE problem in the United States. And yet, A LOT of people don’t realize it. A new study, in Obstetrics & Gynecology, claims many women are unaware that obesity can lead to certain cancers, like colon cancer and breast cancer; Reuters reports.

Now, obesity HURTS your heart too. Another study, this time in Journal of the American College of Cardiology, ties obesity to early risk of heart attack. One researcher told Reuters, “ Obesity has overtaken smoking as the leading cause of premature heart attacks.”

That’s NO joke! Neither is having a miscarriage. And new a study in Fertility and Sterility claims obese women are 67% more likely to have a miscarriage than normal weight women; via Reuters.

Wow! That’s three HUGE reasons to maintain healthy bodyweight.
