- •In a cohort of healthy Israeli subjects, the cancer incidence during ~ 8.5 years follow-up was 5.7%, the prevalence of metabolic syndrome was 15.7%, and obesity (BMI > 30) 14.2%.
- •Neither metabolic syndrome nor obesity did not correlate with an increase in all type cancer incidences.
- •Metabolic syndrome was associated with higher incidence of breast cancer.
Abbreviations:BMI (body mass index), CRP (C-reactive protein), PSA (prostate-specific antigen), HDL (High-density lipoprotein)
