A new study is showing a possible link between fat and cancer.
This study, frustratingly performed by our lean, mean, cheese-eating neighbors (European researchers), shows that a variety of different cancers including those of the esophagus, thyroid, kidney, uterus, breast and gall bladder could be linked to obesity.

US News and World Report:
"This study provides a lot of circumstantial evidence about the dangers of obesity," said Dr. David Robbins, a gastroenterologist at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, who was not involved in the study. "It also highlights the cancer crisis we face as obesity rates increase worldwide."
