Anyone who enjoys sport has an advantage: the researchers were unable to identify an increased risk of cancer in people with an athletic build.

The Cancer Division of the World Health Organization (WHO) has been working on a Europe-wide study in collaboration with a team of researchers from the University of Regensburg in Germany. They found out how different the risk of cancer is in four different body shapes. The results were published in the “British Journal of Cancer”, as reported by the “German Health Portal”.

The four body shapes were calculated mathematically from the six anthropometric traits. Anthropometry is the study of calculating the mass of the human body. This includes height, weight, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, hip circumference and waist-to-hip ratio.
