This study stresses the importance of putting in place efficient weight control measures, to curb the high number
of cancers associated with excess body weight and to avoid the problems faced by rich countries being repeated in those now undergoing rapid development, he added.

Cancer due to overweight and obesity is currently far more common in more developed countries which reported 393,000 cases, or 5.2 per cent of all new cancer cases than in less developed countries which reported 88,000 cases, or 1.5 per cent of all new cancer cases.

What measures?  I can’t help but picture extreme ones given the background of UN activities.
