New data on link between cancer and nutrition discussed at European symposium - 0 views

    European experts in cancer and nutrition are meeting in Zurich, Switzerland late this month to discuss cutting-edge research in one of the most important and fiercely debated topics in cancer prevention: the link between diet and cancer.

    There is growing evidence that many cancers may be prevented through healthy lifestyle, including a nutritionally balanced diet. In addition, nutritional problems can also have a negative impact on cancer management and the lives of patients.

    Other presentations will include new data on topics such as:

    Childhood nutrition and later breast cancer risk
    The anti-tumour effects of green tea
    Malnutrition and patient distress in cancer
    Possible anti-tumour effects of soy extracts in mice
    Estrogens in beef and cancer risk

This study is being prepublished online today in Blood, the official journal of the American Society of Hematology.
