Housecall for Health: Weight Key to Beating Lymphoma
You read story after story about benefits to slimming down or watching your weight. But a new study has found that being overweight might be a good thing when fighting a certain type of cancer.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
Here’s something you don’t hear everyday: A way that extra weight can actually benefit your health. A study from Washington University finds that heavier men are less likely to die from a form of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma called DLBCL.
Researchers are unsure of the reason, but suspect it could have to do with bigger patients’ ability to tolerate the intense chemotherapy. Scientists hope this will lead to a better understanding of lymphatic cancer.
