Study: Link Between Cancer and Obesity, Inactivity


A new government study warns about the possible link between cancer and people who are obese and inactive.

Researchers, including some from the CDC, say those are risk factors for at least a quarter of common cancers in the United States.

The study also says obesity can negatively impact the quality of life for cancer survivors.

The American Cancer Society has estimated that a third of cancer deaths can be attributed to diet and physical activity habits.
