RoseTracker| Dr La Vecchia said the International Agency for Research on Cancer estimates that 25 to 30 per cent of cases could be avoided if women were thinner and did more exercise.

Carlo La Vecchia, of Milan University, told a European Breast Cancer conference in Barcelona: ‘What can be achieved with screening has been achieved. It’s time to move on to other things.’

Unfortunately, it’s not clear if already overweight women could lower their cancer risk by slimming down or if long-term damage has already been done. via Daily Mail UK
