Three in four don’t know obesity causes cancer

Three out of four people in the United Kingdom are unaware of the link between obesity and cancer, according to a new report. The nationwide survey found that people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds are less likely to know about the link. And men are less likely than women to be aware of the increased risk of cancer caused by obesity.

Three out of four (75 per cent) people in the UK are unaware of the link between obesity and cancer, according to a new Cancer Research UK report.
