August 17: Best of Your Health Connection Focuses On Diet, Cancer Links

ccrtd_logo_0.jpg

Does what we eat impact our chances of developing cancer in our lifetime? Do certain foods protect us while others hurt us? Join us for the re-broadcast of a 'best of' edition of Your Health Connection, Wednesday, August 17 at 6:00 p.m. as we explore the links.   JaQuitta Williams was joined in studio by Registered Dietician Kiki Smalley-Frazier. 

If we are what we eat, can you eat in a way to avoid cancer?  What if you or a loved one is a cancer survivor? How and why should you watch your nutrition carefully?

Your Health Connection is community engagement from the Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development (CCRTD) at Clark Atlanta University. More information about their good work can be found here.

CCRTD's Dr. Kimberly Davis passes along these useful links to current medical research on the topic of diet and cancer:
