A recent Cancer Research UK poll of 4,000 people showed that more than half were overweight or obese, but 26% of them said they did not want to lose weight. Some 87% of obese and 32% of overweight people were unable to identify their weight category. And nearly three-quarters said they did not know there was a link between cancer and weight and nearly half did not believe eating healthily could reduce cancer risk. An American survey also showed that they are more accepting of obese people nowadays. Over a 20-year period, the percentage of Americans who said they find overweight people less attractive steadily dropped from 55 percent to 24 percent. However even if people say they are more accepting of overweight people, many still yearn to be thin.
Obesity is linked with an increased risk of bowel, kidney, oesophageal and stomach cancers, as well as cancer of the womb and breast cancer in post-menopausal women. That is why Cancer Research UK and Weight Concern have joined forces to develop Ten Top Tips for a healthy weight, as part of their Reduce the Risk campaign.
