Obesity and Energy Balance and Cancer
There are 13 types of cancer associated with obesity and they account for about 40 % of all cancers diagnosed in the United States in 2014, according to the latest Vital Signs report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Unfortunately, it’s not getting better.
We love this quote: “As an oncologist, when people ask me if there’s a cure for cancer, I say, ‘Yes, good health is the best prescription for preventing chronic diseases, including cancer,’” said Lisa C. Richardson, M.D., M.P.H., director of CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control.

We address the major drivers of the obesity epidemic. Which includes but is not limited to marketing of unhealthy foods and beverages, reduction in physical activity, and the food environment.
