Brief description Diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, hypertension and cancer are chronic diseases faced by many Australians. There is some evidence to suggest that those with diabetes or are obese are at an increased risk of cancer. Sufficiently large studies to examine these relationships do not exist in Australia. This project aims to pool Australian and New Zealand longitudinal studies which have information on diabetes and obesity to examine the relationship between diabetes, obesity and cancer.
