Your Health Connection Explores Links Between Diet And Cancer

JaQuitta Williams discussed diet and cancer during our monthly look at cancer-related health issues on Your Health Connection.  Our informative guest was Registered Dietician Marisa Moore.

Does what you eat make it more likely you will get cancer?  Can you choose to eat in ways that minimize certain cancers?  What about diet when you are a cancer survivor?  We'll take your calls and tweets live as we talk about an issue that is relevant to everyone who eats.

Your Health Connection is made possible by the Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University and the National Institutes of Health.

Here are a few links to recent articles about diet and cancer:
