Men With Pot-Belly Risk Fatal Prostate Cancer!


Waistline Link To Fatal Prostate Cancer

Researchers say every four inches added to a man's waistline increase his chances of developing fatal prostate cancer by 18%.



Fatal prostate cancer has been linked to the size of a man's waistline

The chances of developing aggressive prostate cancer increase with every inch added to your waistline, a study has found.

Scientists at the University of Oxford examined more than 140,000 men over 14 years.

They found that every four inches added to waist circumference can increase a man's chances of developing fatal prostate cancer by 18%.

The risk of dying from the disease also shoots up in men with a high body mass index.

The Cancer Research UK-funded study said: "The findings from this large prospective study show that the association between body size and prostate cancer is complex and varies by disease aggressiveness.

"Men who have greater adiposity have an elevated risk of high grade prostate cancer and prostate cancer death.

"Men should try to maintain a healthy weight."

The study involved men with an average age of 52 in eight countries.

After 14 years, 7,000 incidents of prostate cancer were identified - and 934 proved fatal.
