Get slim if want to cut risk of cancer

A Major international study claimed that who are not overweight should also slim down if they want to cut down the risk of cancer. The World Cancer Research Fund issued some severe recommendations.

They include not gaining weight as an adult, cutting sugary drinks and alcohol and stop eating bacon and ham. All of us need to get slim but avoid getting underweight. People with BMI in the range 18.5 to 25 are considered healthy weights. But the study suggests that risk increase when we move towards25 mark. So we need to try in remaining as close as to the lower end.
