A most recent study presented at the 2017 European Society for Medical Oncology has shown that women who have a “spare tire” they are greater risk for lung cancer and gastrointestinal cancers. The study was done in Denmark. There were 5,855 women in this study. They had been followed for at least 12 years. Central obesity showed an increased risk for lung and GI cancers. Those who had “spare tires” had an increase in their diet of simple carbohydrates such as potatoes, wheat, rice and corn. This does not mean that simple carbohydrates should not be part of your diet, they should. However, a well-balanced diet is important.
