Effects of Obesity on Breast Cancer Institutional Affiliation Course Date Effects of Obesity on Breast Cancer Introduction Breast Cancer has been found to be the most common diagnosed type of cancer in women. It causes about 20% of the total deaths annually. From many clinical research obesity is assimilated with an inclined contingency of postmenopausal breast cancer. While a reversed (opposite) affiliation is seen in premenopausal ladies. In many western nations obesity and overweight is termed to be the most crucial nutritional health danger. And as it has been observed excess fats in the body are not only a risk aspect for diabetes and heart diseases but also contributes to the various types of cancer and breast cancer being one of them. Obesity has been found to be a global epidemic with an estimation of around three hundred million people being linked to it. And there is high possibility and fatal diseases such as breast cancer. All the governments and health professionals and departments around the globe should focus on establishing programs that will ensure that tremendous awareness on the effect of obesity on breast cancer is created to all the people all around the world. I also encourage a large-scale study on this topic since when more details are unveiled about this topic it means that more information will be passed all around the world thus increasing knowledge and as a result it will help people to be cautious of their weight.

Significance of a Dissertation Topic Walden University has developed numerous documents to guide you through the dissertation process. Last week you took the first step in developing your Premise by posting a topic and problem statement for peer review. In this Discussion, you further examine your topic and problem statement in light of Walden’s Quality Indicators. Reflect on the dissertation topic and problem statement you posted in the Week 1 Discussion—and perhaps have since revised based on peer or Instructor feedback. Using the Dissertation Topics Guide for your degree (see Week 1 Learning Resources) be certain that your dissertation topic aligns with your degree. Then, review the Dissertation Prospectus Guide found on the “Office of Student Research Administration: Ph.D. Dissertation Program” webpage in this week’s Learning Resources, focusing on the Quality Indicators. Finally, evaluate your topic and problem statement through the lens of Indicators 2 and 3. Indicator 2 asks: is your selected problem meaningful, i.e. has gap in the research literature been identified to demonstrate that this is a meaningful problem to investigate? Indicator 3 asks: is your selected problem significant, i.e. is this problem important to the discipline and/or your professional field. Also, is it an authentic “puzzle” that needs solving, and not merely a topic that the researcher finds interesting? QUESTION Post your evaluation of the significance of your research topic and problem statement ( EFFECT OF OBESITY ON BREAST CANCER) with regard to Quality Indicators 2 and 3. Explain whether your topic and problem statement meet those Indicators and why. If your topic and problem statement do not meet Quality Indicators 2 and 3, explain how you could modify them so that the Indicators might be met. QUALITY (2) Meaningful? Has a meaningful problem or gap in the research literature been identified? In other words, is addressing this problem the logical next step, given the previous exploratory and confirmatory research (or lack thereof) on this topic? It is not acceptable to simply replicate previous research for a PhD degree. QUALITY (3). Justified? Is evidence presented that this problem is significant to the discipline and/or professional field? The prospectus should provide relevant statistics and evidence, documentable discrepancies, and other scholarly facts that point to the significance and urgency of the problem. The problem must be an authentic “puzzle” that needs solving, not merely a topic that the researcher finds interesting.
