Reducing cancer risk through nutrition

February 5th @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

More than 18 million people around the world are diagnosed with cancer each year — and research suggests that nearly 25% of these cases could be prevented with better nutrition. But when it comes to dietary advice, myths and misinformation abound. This panel discussion will explore the connection between diet and cancer, and will offer science-based tips for reducing risk and practical suggestions for selecting and preparing food for healthy meals.
