WASHINGTON - Obesity causes more than 100,000 cases of cancer in the United States each year and the number will likely rise as Americans get fatter, researchers said on Thursday.

In July, federal and other researchers estimated that obesity-related diseases account for nearly 10 percent of all medical spending in the United States or an estimated $147 billion a year.
