There is some scienc: Nutrition, Weight and metabolism are interrelated in Causation of Cancer. There is sufficient scientific evidence that excessive body weight increase the risk of several different Cancers. Fasting is one way to reduce your body weight although it is the hardest way to achieve that goal. I would advise you to eat healthy(Low fat, Plant based foods) and maintain your weight in healthy normal range.
