Postmenopausal Cancer Risk Rises with Body Fat and Weight

According to a weight study from Germany, "high BMI is a well known risk factor for postmenopausal breast cancer. There have been some reports of excess risk in association with weight gain and WHR, but little is known about the influence of body fatness per se.

Using data from the Malmo Diet and Cancer Study, a prospective cohort study, 12159 postmenopausal women (59.9±7.7 yrs) were categorized by quintiles of baseline anthropometric and impedance measures and reported weight change since age 20. RRs from multivariate Cox regression models were calculated. All analyses were adjusted for age, height, smoking, alcohol consumption, occupation, marital status, parity, age at first pregnancy, age at menarche and current hormone use," stated P.H. Lahmann and co-authors.
