Eating for health can reduce your risk of cancer
For World Cancer Day (WCD) 2021 the Irish Cancer Prevention Network (ICPN) and the Irish Nutrition & Dietetic Institute (INDI) teamed up to increase public awareness about the impact of eating for health to reduce cancer risk. World Cancer Day is an international awareness day held each year on the 4th February. The day seeks to raise awareness of cancer and empower individuals, populations and governments to take action to prevent and tackle cancer.
This year's WCD theme, 'I Am and I Will', focuses on the power that each person has to reduce the global impact of cancer. For World Cancer Day 2021, the INDI and ICPN held a free public webinar about eating for health to reduce cancer risk. The webinar “Food for thought: Eating to Reduce Cancer Risk” was live on Thursday 4th February at 13:00-13:45. It was delivered by Dr Heather Burns, Consultant in Public Health Medicine at the National Cancer Control Programme and Sarah Keogh, Consultant Registered Dietitian at Irish Nutrition & Dietetic Institute. Please watch the webinar back here in your own time and we hope you find it useful and informative.
