An elevated body mass index (BMI) has been linked to the development of several chronic, degenerative conditions, including diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, and coronary heart disease. Now, new research indicates that obesity may also be linked to a greater risk of a lethal brain tumor, meningioma.

..

In a meta-analysis, researchers from the University of Regensburg in Germany explored the relationship between adiposity and physical activity and meningioma and glioma risk. The rate of occurrence for the two types of tumors are relatively the same, but gliomas have a worse prognosis. Currently, nearly no modifiable risk factors have been identified for the tumors, with any known risk factors unchangeable.

..

Given the high prevalence of obesity and the unfavorable prognosis for this type of tumor, these findings may be relevant for strategies aimed at reducing the risk of meningioma, researcher Gundula Behrens, PhD, said.

..

While the study did show an association between weight and tumor risk, the researchers emphasized that tumors, especially meningiomas and gliomas, are rare, and that more research needs to be conducted in order to better understand the relationship between the two factors.
