Overeating Increases the Risk of Cancer

Overeating Increases the Risk of Cancer

Eating more than your body needs can’t only wear out your scales, it can wear out your life! Overeating increases the risk of cancer, including bowel and breast cancer.

Did you know that overeating by just 100 calories per day can lead to a 5kg (11lb) gain in weight within a year. That’s 25kg (nearly four stone) in only five years – this is the same as a heavy suitcase! In fact, nearly 89,000 cases of cancer could be prevented in the UK through eating healthy foods and maintaining a healthy weight. Scary statistics!
