[The Epoch Times, 5 ottobre 2022](Epoch Times reporter Wang Jiayi reported in Tokyo, Japan) Excessive fat intake can cause obesity and increase cancer risk. Studies have shown that obesity is closely related to 21 diseases.

In March of this year, a study published in the international journal “The Lancet” by a research group of the University of London in the United Kingdom showed that obesity is closely related to 21 diseases, including cardiometabolic diseases, diseases of the ‘digestive system, respiratory diseases, neurological diseases, musculoskeletal diseases, systemic diseases, etc.

The research team followed more than 110,000 people for 12 years and divided them into four groups: obesity, overweight, normal weight and underweight.After adjusting for confounding factors such as educational background, smoking, alcohol consumption, and l ‘physical activity, the analysis found that, The risk of death in the obese population is 30% higher than that of the normal weight group; excluding the types of disease with a strong correlation with obesity and a small number of samples, the risk of developing an obesity-related disease in the obese population is 2.83 times that of the normal weight population. obesity was 5.17 times that of the normal weight population and the risk of complex comorbidities was increased to 12.39 times that of the normal weight population.

The 21 diseases closely related to obesity include: adult diabetes, hypertension, angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, heart failure, arrhythmia, cerebral infarction, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, pancreatitis, liver disease, bacterial infections, gout, inflammation of the bones and joints, back pain, asthma, kidney cancer, skin infections and eczema, anemia, kidney failure, sleep disturbances.

In addition, a clinical study at Peking University Cancer Hospital showed that being overweightstomach cancerPatients also had more complications during surgery than the general population. Minimally invasive gastrointestinal cancer surgery in hospital divided 164 gastric cancer patients undergoing laparoscopic distal gastric cancer surgery into 2 groups. Among these, 40 patients had a body mass index (BMI) of over 25 kg / ㎡, which is the group of obese people was called; 124 patients had a BMI of less than 25 kg /, called the non-obese group. The operation, postoperative recovery and complications of the two groups were compared.

The results showed that the operation time and blood loss in the obese group were significantly longer than in the non-obese group and the incidence of postoperative complications in the obese and non-obese groups was 20% and 12%, respectively. . postoperative complication rates.

In an interview with The Epoch Times, Wen Jie, a doctor at the University of Tokyo in Japan, said that in general,stomach cancerThere are no symptoms early on, and even if symptoms appear, it can be considered a gastrointestinal problem; when cancer cells begin to grow and spread, the best time to cure gastric cancer is missed and the diagnosis is often advanced gastric cancer.

He also said that when the body has indigestion, abdominal pain, nausea, heartburn, loss of appetite, general fatigue or diarrhea, etc., and some people have symptoms such as weight loss, care should be taken to find the cause. .

She stressed,intervention on obesityit is an important and feasible method. Recommend obese patients twice a weekStrength trainingMuscle is the key to improving basal metabolic rate, and it can also prevent sugar from entering blood vessels and causing high blood sugar; in addition, a balanced diet, especially to reduce sugar intake, balanced intake of proteins, vegetables and carbohydrate-based foods; Also, get 6-8 hours of sleep, let your body rest completely; if there is pressure, release it in time, because the pressure is high, the blood pressure will also rise.
