Cancers tied to obesity rise among young adults in the U.S.

New research suggests that cancers tied to obesity are on the rise among young adults in the United States. Researchers dug into data from 25 states on cancers diagnosed between 1995 and 2014. When they looked specifically at cancers that have been associated with obesity — including multiple myeloma, thyroid, and kidney cancers — they found that rates are rising most quickly among adults ages 25 to 49. It’s important to note that while prevalence is climbing among young people, the cancers are generally much more common among older adults ages 50 to 84. The study, published in the Lancet Public Health, comes as the health community marks World Cancer Day. (from STAT, Boston, MA)
