According to a study by the University of California (United States), higher people have a higher risk of developing cancer because more cells of the disease expands.
The researchers analyzed the population on three continents and found that the risk of cancer in both men and women is 10% higher at a height of 10 cm. The cancer develops by opening the way for cancer cells to manifest as tumors, as the cells stop working at their normal control by the body.
The study shows that the risk of developing different types of cancer is more likely to have more cells in tall humans, and therefore these cells are more likely to develop cancer. "This means that this extra risk cannot be reduced," said Leonard Nunney of the University of California Riverside.
In the past, other researchers have tried to link the fact that tall people have a higher risk of cancer. But Nunney's work on its population in the United States, Europe, and South Korea is trying to show that this can probably be something, because there are more cells where something can happen.
In particular, people of greater size are at increased risk of developing melanoma because they have a higher proportion of cells and have more skin than only average-sized people. However, the risk of stomach, cheek or cervical cancer in women seems to be irrelevant in the information received from El esquiu.
