Cancer prevention through diet: report

Added: Friday 4 July 2014

We know that cancer risk factors can be reduced through nutrition. But do national cancer prevention plans reflect this? The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has brought out a report entitled Mapping dietary prevention of cancer in the EU, providing a summary of each country's National Cancer Plan as it relates to diet. The authors of the report hope that countries will respond to the report by increasing diet-based interventions.
