Live in 30 mins – come join us as we talk about the links between processed meat and cancer, and how diet can affect cancer risk. 

Originally shared by Science on Google+

We’ve all read the headlines about the link between processed meat link and cancer. But what exactly is the risk, and should we give up bacon and burgers? Is it really as bad as smoking? What is the underlying mechanism behind the increased risk of developing cancer? Join us for a Science on Google+ and Cancer Research UK  Hangout on Air as we speak to Dr Kathryn Bradbury and Professor Owen Sansom about this story. 

Kathryn is a nutritional epidemiologist at the University of Oxford who studies the links between diet and cancer. Owen is a molecular biologist at the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow, who is investigating the cell signalling pathways that are activated in colon cancer. 

This HOA will be hosted by Dr Buddhini Samarasinghe and Dr Kat Arney  . You can tune in on Friday November 27th at 4 PM UK time. The hangout will also be available for viewing on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/ScienceHangouts) after the event.

  1. Thanks for the info, glad I watched. You mentioned that colleague’s tweeted about this event, but did not give hashtag or their names, so hard to follow-up on that.

  2. Can you publicise the summary with a comment on this post, too.  Then at least Gerry Ward and myself will know and not miss your new post.


    Anybody else wanting to hear should add a comment, too. Just ‘follow’ or something. No intellectual content required;-)
