The study was carried out by researchers from the University of Bristol who were looking into the link between fat and womb cancer.

Dr Emma Hazelwood, lead researcher, said: “This study is an interesting first step into how genetic analyses could be used to uncover exactly how obesity causes cancer and what can be done to tackle it.”

Meanwhile, Cancer Research UK’s head of health information, Dr Julie Sharp added: “Studies like this bolster the fact that being overweight or obese is the second biggest cause of cancer in the UK and can help us start to pinpoint why.”

Dr Hazelwood said: “This will play a pivotal role in uncovering how to prevent and treat cancer in the future.”
