The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) is hosting its Annual Research Conference on Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity and Cancer on November 7-8 at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda, right outside Washington, DC.

This year’s sessions feature new research on:

  • The role of exercise in preventing and treating bone loss among cancer survivors
  • How to prepare broccoli and other plant foods to increase their cancer-protective compounds; and how to prepare meat to minimize its carcinogens
  • How diet may affect cancer risk over multiple generations
  • How the foods we eat can turn genes “on” and “off” to lower cancer risk
  • How increasing the amount of healthier foods in stores can lead to weight loss and healthier eating

Leading scientists and health professionals will be available for press interviews upon request.
