New Cancer Link Not a Tall Story

It always amazes me how, in medicine we link disease to nutrients, genes, exercise, no exercise, weight – supplements, etc.  

Now being tall all of a sudden may not be the best thing.  

There was recently a new study of 21,000 post menopausal women. It was found that for every 4 inches of increased height, the risk of certain cancers (skin, breast, colon) increased by 13%. Worse yet kidney and blood (leukemia) cancers increased by 29%.  

This may be due to genes, ie: tall people “grow” more and cancers are overgrowths or excessive uncontrolled growth of cell lines.  There may be a link.  

Unfortunately our genetic makeup is something we are born with and can’t change. 

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, there are many things we can change - and for the better.
