|HAVANA， June 15 (Xinhua) -- Greco-roman wrestler Mijain Lopez will be Cuba's flag-bearer at the opening ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games， the country announced on Wednesday.
"It will be a great privilege for the Cuban delegation for Mijain to carry the national flag in this important competition，" said Antonio Becali， president of the National Institute of Sports， Physical Education and Recreation (INDER)， at a press conference.
This will see Lopez carry the Cuban flag at his third Olympiad， after doing so in Beijing 2008 and London 2012， equaling the record of Cuban boxer lTeofilo Stevenson， who was the flag-bearer at Munich 1972， Montreal 1976 and Moscow 1980.

"We are in a better shape than four years ago，" said Becali， who added that Cuba is aiming to be in the top 20 of the medal tally.

WASHINGTON， Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- People who are overweight and obese are at a heightened risk for developing eight additional types of cancer， an international team of researchers said Wednesday.
However， the team was quick to add that limiting weight gain could help to reduce the risk of these cancers， namely stomach， liver， gall bladder， pancreas， ovary， meningioma， thyroid cancer and multiple myeloma.
The findings， published in The New England Journal of Medicine， are based on a review of more than 1，000 studies of excess weight and cancer risk analyzed by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Cancer on Research (IARC)， based in France.
In 2002， the same group of cancer researchers found sufficient evidence linking excess weight to higher risks of cancers of the colon， esophagus， kidney， breast and uterus.
""The burden of cancer due to being overweight or obese is more extensive than what has been assumed，"" said cancer prevention expert Graham Colditz at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis， who chaired the IARC Working Group.
""Many of the newly identified cancers linked to excess weight haven't been on people's radar screens as having a weight component.""
The cancer risks associated with excess weight were similar for men and women and were consistent across geographic regions -- North America， Europe， Asia and the Middle East， said the researchers.
There are many reasons why being overweight or obese can increase cancer risk， they noted. Excess fat leads to an overproduction of estrogen， testosterone and insulin， and promotes inflammation， all of which can drive cancer growth.
The findings could have a significant bearing on the global population. Worldwide， an estimated 640 million adults and 110 million children are obese.
""Lifestyle factors such as eating a healthy diet， maintaining a healthy weight and exercising， in addition to not smoking， can have a significant impact on reducing cancer risk，"" Colditz said. ""Public health efforts to combat cancer should focus on these things that people have some control over.""
""But losing weight is hard for many people，"" he added. ""Rather than getting discouraged and giving up， those struggling to take off weight could instead focus on avoiding more weight gain.""
