Big waistline increases the risk of developing colon cancer

Jul 06, 2006



In a study of 368,277 adults from nine European countries over a six-year period it was found that men with the largest waistline were 39% more likely to be diagnosed with colon cancer than those with the smallest. In women, those with the largest waistline had a 48% higher risk of developing colon cancer than those with the smallest waistlines. The study is published in the July 5th, 2006 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

Studies show it is not the caffeine which helps decrease the risk of developing diabetes but probably the polyphenols.
