Associations of BMI at Different Ages With Early-Onset Colorectal Cancer

Obesity, particularly in early adulthood, increases the risk of early-onset colorectal cancer, which highlights the need for personalized screening strategies.


I was wondering if any of you saw this news item that CRGuy recently posted, and what you think of it.

I have my own opinions on it, but I'm not ready at this point to post my thoughts on the matter.

I would say post away ... !

A lot of these news bits and bytes are coming from a place of talking points
to investigate another data point on the whole CRC matrix.

It can engender solid discussion and further study ... OR
simply define a correlation with or without defined causality.

BUTT ... as long as folks are talking and thinking about these topics
=>>> a good thing IMO !

Cheers all
