The Fact Of Relationship Between Abdominal Fat And Cancer

Although obesity is one of the factors contributing to the risk of cancer, the reasons for this have not been fully explained. According to a study published by a specialized medical website.


The study pointed out that one of the proteins that come from fat in the body may cause a turning non-cancerous cell to a cancer cell.

Researchers at Michigan State University found that the lower layer of abdominal fat produces a protein that promotes tumor growth more when compared to subcutaneous fat.

According to the study, it is estimated that more than a third of the population are obese. Where obesity has been linked to many types of cancer including breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, uterine cancer and kidney cancer.

But the study clearly indicated that weight gain is not necessarily the main factor to determine the risk of cancer, and shows that the body mass index may not be the best indicator of the risk of cancer.

The study gave the rats a diet rich in fat. The study found that the most dangerous layer "Lower fat layer" produced greater amounts of protein FGF2 compared with Subcutaneous fat.

The researchers found that FGF2 stimulated some protein-sensitive cells and caused the tumor growth.

The study also collected visceral fat tissue from women who underwent hysterectomy. It was found that when fat secretions were rich in FGF2, the number of cells was transformed into cancerous tumors when transferred to mice.

This indicated that fats from mice and humans alike could transform from a non-tumor cell into a malignant tumor cell.
