A 2003 study by the American Cancer Society (ACS) concluded that excess weight may account for 20 percent of cancer deaths in women and 14 percent of those in men. Earlier studies found that excess weight contributes to cancers of the breast, uterus, colon, rectum, kidney, esophagus and gall bladder. The ACS study also linked it to cancers of the cervix and ovary, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, pancreas, liver and, in men, the stomach and prostate.
