Obesity is one of the prevailing reasons leading to colorectal cancer. Lack of physical activity along with inappropriate diet lead to obesity. According to cancer organization, people who are obese are slightly (about 30%) more likely to develop colorectal cancer than normal-weight people. Obesity contributes to the increased release of estrogens and a reduction in sensitivity to insulin. The hormones, insulin (IGF-1), and leptin are all elevated in people who are obese and promote the growth of cancer cells. Elevated insulin levels in the body can signal tumor cells to grow and increase the risk of cancer in the bowel. Hence, rising cases of obesity may expand the colorectal cancer cases. According to WHO, in 2016, more than 1.9 billion people of age 18 years and older, were overweight. Out of this, more than 650 million (13%) were obese, and around 39% of adults aged 18 years and over were overweight in 2016. Similarly, about 340 million children in the age range of 5-19 years are obese in 2016. Almost 40% of adults aged 40 to 60 years and above suffer from obesity globally. Colorectal cancer has the highest prevalence rate in this age group, especially 60 years and above.
