yeah, i read that studies on overweight mice showed that they had more trouble fighting off skin cancer than their slimmer companions.
the study showed that the mice recovered/fought off the skin cancer better when they lost weight - whether it was from extra exercise or liposuction..
apparently there is something in body fat which hinders the body's ability to fight off and prevent cancer...
definately motivates me (a beach lover) to lose weight!
