Sustained weight loss and risk of breast cancer in women ≥ 50 years: a pooled analysis of prospective data

The results of this study by Teras et al, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, December, 2019, demonstrate the importance of weight loss to numerous major health problems, in this case, breast cancer. Women not on post-menopausal hormone therapy who had a sustained modest weight loss of greater than 2 Kg displayed a significant reduction in breast cancer risk. This risk reduction increased with increasing levels of sustained weight loss and was even present in women who initially achieved greater than 2 Kg of weight loss, but later gained back part of this weight loss. This provides further evidence that the effort to achieve even modest weight loss is beneficial.
