Last week I saw a disturbing article on how 40% of new cancers are because of obesity, this figure certainly includes seniors and cancer. For the majority of people, these are self-inflicted wounds of years of being overweight. I wrote an article about this topic but thought we needed to do a podcast on this news as well.
My overall feeling is this nation eats too many carbohydrates and sugar, which causes us to get fat. I use an app called Feedly to stay current with news I am interested.
I have seen and read countless articles about how carbohydrates (sugar is classified as a carb) is the culprit behind our deteriorating health. I have written about this here.
So while disappointing, it was not a shock to see that 40% of new cancers are because we are overweight.
