Very pleain the newssed to see this story on our recently updated expert report in yesterday’s PARADE Magazine.

Dr. Ranit Mishori‘s Stay Healthy column reminds readers that the recent controversy over mammograms should not distract women from the convincing evidence that diet, weight and physical activity make a big difference in lowering risk.

Includes a nice quote from AICR Director of Research Susan Higginbotham, PhD, RD.

A great way to start the week!

    Note:  Soy is one of several much-studied foods featured on the Foods That Fight Cancer? section of the AICR website.

      ManJumpRopeBeachThis time of year can get crazy, and many of us get through it by telling ourselves that we’ll start taking better care of our health — AFTER the holidays are over.

      “I’ll run a marathon!”  “I’ll head to the gym every morning!”  “I’ll bike to work!”

      All laudable goals, to be sure.  But one speaker at our Research Conference argued that such sudden, sweeping changes are tough to make permanent, and only set us up for failure.

      We wrote about him, and his preferred approach to getting more activity, lowering weight — and lowering cancer risk — in this month’s AICR eNews.
