The group published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine not only to reaffirm those findings but adding eight more cancers to the list.

Reducing one’s weight can reduce the risk of several cancers, including colon, rectum, stomach, esophagus, and numerous others, the evaluation concluded.

The report also found that an estimated 4.5 million deaths in 2013 were related to overweight and obesity.
