Obesity is linked to 12 different cancers

They advise to eat smaller portions of red and processed meat such as bacon and to eat no more than three portions of it a week.

Want to reduce your risk of cancer by 40 percent?

Over 18 years of follow-up, almost 10,000 women developed obesity-related cancers, da Silva's team found. For cancer prevention, it's best not to drink alcohol.

People should limit alcohol consumption, not use supplements for cancer prevention and try to meet nutritional needs through diet alone, the report authors said.

Alcohol, meanwhile, was "strongly" associated with cancer of the breast, liver, mouth, bowel, throat, esophagus, and stomach.

This is according to a new report from World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), released this week at the European Congress on Obesity in Austria. Breast cancer after the menopause and advanced prostate cancer were also linked to obesity. Among the findings were that women with a high weight gain (an increase of 10kg or more across 6 years) were near twice as likely to develop pancreatic cancer.

As for booze, the organisation recommends giving up alcohol entirely, but if you do drink alcohol you should follow national guidelines and not go over 14 units (around 7 drinks) a week. Do you think cutting out foods could prevent your risk of cancer?

The recommendations included: being a healthy weight; exercising; eating grains, veg, fruit and beans; avoiding high calorie foods; limiting the consumption of red and processed meat and sugar-sweetened drinks, as well as cutting out alcohol.

To assess the impact of this intervention on cancer outcomes, investigators merged the data from the Oslo study with data from the Cancer Registry of Norway and the Norwegian Cause of Death Registry from 1972-1973 to the end of 2015.

The number of new cases of cancer is expected to rise by 58% to 24 million globally by 2035 as more countries adopt "Western" lifestyles, according to the report.

"Our cancer prevention recommendations work together as a blueprint to beat cancer that people can trust because they are based on evidence that has now proved consistent for decades", said Dr. Fiota Mitou, WRCF director of research funding, to The Telegraph. It encouraged people to reduce or eliminate consumption of red meat and sugar-sweetened drinks, along with changing their diet and lifestyle.

The World Cancer Research Fund announced these recommendations in the report Diet, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Cancer: A Global Perspective.

Caroline Cerny of the Obesity Health Alliance, a coalition of health organisations, said: "As this report shows, carrying excess weight can increase the risk of cancer". Not smoking, keeping a healthy weight, eating and drinking healthily and getting more active all helps. She also called on the government to act to curb junk food marketing.
