Google ‘food, nutrition and cancer’ and in a few seconds you will have access to over 250 million articles describing what to eat to ‘prevent cancer’, ‘stop cancer spreading’ or ‘cure’ it altogether!
The deluge of information available is mesmerising.
Compelling suggestions to look for ‘miracle foods that cure cancer’ are added distractions, which open up millions of additional materials in a never-ending maze of scientific evidence, fad notions and conflicting advice.
Too much information becomes as bewildering as too little.
It shouldn’t be like this.
In reality, eating well to reduce cancer risk is doable by everyone in Ireland – and is well backed up by excellent scientific evidence.
At this Purple House event by Dr. Mary Flynn (Food, Nutrition and Cancer – what we know now) every aspect of such healthy eating habits will be explored –
What foods are best?
How do they protect against cancer?
What are best cooking methods?
All the reasons why will be explained.
The highest quality evidence in the world (World Cancer Research Fund) will be used to focus in on what’s best about our eating habits in Ireland.
The myriad of different food choices that can be part of a healthy eating pattern will be described.
In reality, reducing cancer risk through food comes in many different ways – using many different foods eaten in many different patterns.
Helping people find a way to develop healthy food habits that best fit their lifestyle and that they can enjoy, is not only important – it’s the only way to achieve a long-term food plan that lowers cancer risk.
Some of the best insight on how to achieve this comes from learning how others have managed.
At the Purple House event on Food, Nutrition and Cancer – what we know now, Dr Mary Flynn outlines the latest scientific evidence on healthy eating followed by discussion with the audience.
