CCS names research by Cancer Prevention Centre one of top research stories of 2013

Research by Faculty of Medicine professor Dr. Carolyn Gotay and the Cancer Prevention Centre team on mapping the obesity problem in Canada was named one of the top research stories of 2013 by the Canadian Cancer Society. Gotay updated the maps, showing that obesity rates have climbed in the last 11 years, providing the evidence needed to promote action from the public, healthcare providers, and decision-makers to improve the health of Canadians. It is estimated that diet, obesity, and lack of exercise are responsible for about one-third of all cancers. For more information, click here.
