`My grandpa smoked like a chimney, drank like a fish, ate whatever he wanted, and still lived to a ripe old age. But my friend was a tee-total, non-smoking veggie and still got cancer ¿ so how can you say that her lifestyle caused it?¿

It¿s a tricky subject - although it¿s incredibly important for us to publish research about lifestyle, diet and cancer, we¿re also aware that these are sometimes the last thing a person who already has cancer wants to hear about. In our latest blog post, we discuss that research into the preventable causes of cancer isn¿t about blame ¿ it¿s about helping to save more lives in the future.
