Los Angeles, CA, July 25, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- This health update was provided by http://ananticancerdiet.com, supporting the new book, "An Anti-Cancer Diet," by Robert Korczynski.
Tobacco use was formerly the #1 cause of cancer in the United States, but the numbers are in, and being overweight or obese now poses the same risk of dying from cancer as all forms of tobacco use combined. The 2008 American Cancer Society report shows that tobacco use is currently associated with about 1/3 of all cancer-related deaths in the United States, while being overweight or obese now also totals 1/3 of all deaths from cancer.
Since tobacco use in the form of cigarettes accounts for only a portion of all tobacco-related cancer deaths, eating the wrong foods and being overweight has now passed cigarettes as the top cancer killer in the United States. Losing weight may be one of the easiest ways to lower cancer risk.
The simple dietary guidelines provided in the new book, An Anti-Cancer Diet, combine three powerful new diets to help customers lose weight (C.R.O.N., Increased Metabolism, and an all-in-one food source). This same diet also helps to lower the risk of being diagnosed with prostate, breast, or colon cancer (for links to the studies on cancer, read the section titled, “Plant-Based Diet Lowers Cancer Risk,” on the Cancer Fighting Links page at http://www.ananticancerdiet.com.
