Study finds many cancer survivors overweight


A new study in Cancer Research found that less than one-quarter of cancer survivors were regularly physically active and more than 18 percent were obese.

Researchers say maintaining a healthy weight and getting regular exercise may be more crucial for cancer survivors than the general public.

The study found 34 percent of cancer survivors were overweight and almost 1 in 5 was obese.
