Lose weight and reduce your risk for ovarian cancer

by , 03 April 2014

Your body mass index (BMI) uses your height and weight to determine your health risk for obesity.

The higher your BMI, the unhealthier you are. The average BMI range for women over 20 years old is 19-25.

Now, a study out of the American Institute for Cancer Research shows that BMI can be used as a measure of your risk for ovarian cancer. For every five-point increase in BMI, your risk for developing ovarian cancer rises by 6%.

Here's why.

Take control of your BMI to avoid ovarian cancer
 
Researchers looked at results from over 120 different studies and four million women. They believe that the risk for ovarian cancer begins to increase when your BMI is over 30.
 
Let’s say you and your friend are both 1.65m tall. You weigh 70kg. That makes your BMI 25. Your friend is 15kg heavier than you. Her BMI will be 30. This means regardless of any other lifestyle factors, her risk for ovarian cancer is at least 6% higher than yours.
