(NaturalNews) Last month everyone wore pink to symbolize the awareness of breast cancer. Even with so much information coming out on the subject, people still heavily fear being a victim of the disease that killed approximately 41,000 people in 2006. With all of the allegedly "safe" and "beneficial" practices such as screenings and drug treatments, the prevalence of breast cancer has yet to diminish. Even in light of these supposedly "safe" practices, none of them actually serve to prevent breast cancer. There aren't many physical common denominators when observing people with breast cancer. One such variable that seems to influence the risk drastically, however, is weight.

Studies show that if people are carrying around extra weight, then their chances of getting breast cancer are augmented significantly. Even if the cancer is cured, odds of surviving even 10 years after the treatment are not promising. Further more, people who survive breast cancer who are overweight have a greater risk of developing cancer later in life.

Research shows that the hormones leptin and adiponectin, which come from fat, are involved with the development of cancers. As a person gains weight above normal levels, the hormone levels are thrown out of proportion. Leptin levels increase as adiponectin levels decrease, which causes a major imbalance in the body, triggering gene switches that encourage cancer.

This information connecting obesity with breast cancer should not be a surprise. Obesity has been linked to a host of diseases including diabetes, cancer, digestive issues, hormone imbalances, low productivity, and much more. There are absolutely no benefits that come with the accumulation of unhealthy, and oftentimes toxic, fat.

Everyone has the power to educate themselves as to how to reduce body fat. Every single person has the ability of self-empowerment to stop consuming junk products and to increase physical activity levels. It can be as simple as deciding to eliminate soda from your diet, or choosing to add a serving of vegetables to each meal. Embarking on these lifestyle changes will produce a healthier body and a focused mind. Take control right now. Lose fat, and live a life devoid of grueling health ailments.
