October means nonstop action here at AICR as we prepare to launch our Second Expert Report, Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective. October’s e.Newsletter shows how it came to be and even explores what foods were on our expert panel’s plates while they reviewed all those years of research. You’ll also find information on some of today’s trends in food and exercise, from new logos on favorite foods to interval training. Enjoy.
