Obesity is currently one of the most widespread diseases in the world. Obesity is a disorder of excessive fat, which puts general health at serious risk. If we believe the conclusions from the last study, adolescent obesity is four times more likely to develop pancreatic cancer later in life.
For the study, the researchers analyzed 1,087,358 Jewish men and 707,212 women aged between 16 and 19.
The findings reveal that overweight and even greater weight in the "normal" weight range in men can increase the risk of pancreatic cancer in a graded manner.
Compared to normal body weight, obesity was associated with a 3.67-fold higher risk of cancer among men and a 4.07-fold higher risk among women, according to studies published in the CANCER journal.
High normal BMI and overweight men were associated with 49% and 97% higher risk for cancer, respectively, compared to those with low normal BMI.
Pancreatic cancer has an extremely low survival rate, which has barely improved over the past 40 years. He is also one of the leading murderers in the world.
The combination of complex chemical, biological, biomechanical and structural factors in the tissues of pancreatic cancer makes treatment even more difficult.
Researchers said weight management could help reduce the risk.
Dietary advice to manage obesity
Here are some dietary recommendations recommended by our specialist dietitian Rupali Datta to better cope with the disease.
1. Turn refined sources of carbohydrate into whole grains. Whole grain is the grain of every grain that contains endosperm, germ and bran, as opposed to refined grains that only endosperm retain. Whole grains manage to stop all nutrients that are processed in the refining process. On whole grains such as bajra, ragi, corn and jowar. Try red, black and brown rice instead of white rice.
2. Like grains, whole dals are also a better option than washed people. Rajma and chana dals are some of the healthiest people with whom you can fill your shelves. You can cook them, have them in sprouts or in soups.
3. Avoid red meat and choose lean meat, such as chicken and salmon. Adding protein to each meal can turn out to be a game changer for anyone trying to lose weight.
4. Load seasonal vegetables. In addition to vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, they provide soluble and insoluble fibers.
5. Stay away from trans fats because they are one of the biggest culprits of the growing cases of obesity around the world. Fast food, instant food, fried trash, cookies, pasta, burger and pasta – these trans fats are scattered all over our site.
