wow ive just been reading that studies have shown that obesity can cause breast cancer! did anyone else know that? i was reading it in the womans day, that is pretty scary! i have Thanatophobia which is a phobia of dying so its good to know that by losing weight i will have 'less' of a chance of getting breast cancer.

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!
