Summary

In 2018, the country with the most cases was Mongolia, with Egypt coming in second and Gambia third.Males are more likely than females to develop liver cancer, and the condition is the fastest growing cause of cancer deaths in men in the U.S. The most common form of the disease is hepatocellular carcinoma, and this is the type of liver cancer that the new study investigates.While exercise is often a recommended way to maintain a moderate weight and avoid or control type 2 diabetes, the study’s authors focused on identifying a mechanism directly linking activity level to liver cancer.Geoffrey C. He comments on the significance of the study, saying:“Some population data suggest that persons who exercise regularly are less likely to develop liver cancer, but studies addressing whether this has a real biological basis and, if so, identifying the molecular mechanism that produces such a protective effect are few, and the findings have been inconclusive.” Farrell and his colleagues genetically modified mice to increase their appetites, causing them to develop obesity and diabetes as young adults.
