Steve the AICR Librarian regularly combs the net for news relevant to our mission.
We love getting these updates, because they help us keep on top of the latest developments. They also provide fodder for discussion both internally (ie, around the watercooler) and externally (ie, in AICR publications like Cancer Research Update and eNews.)
We figured we shouldn’t keep Steve’s hard work to ourselves, so here’s his latest roundup. Hope you find it as useful as we do.

What do we know today that we didn’t know just 10 years ago?
Their answers might surprise you – they surprised us. Although epidemiologists, clinicians, basic researchers and health professionals differ on what they believe to be the most important achievement in the past ten years, they agreed on one thing: It’s never been clearer that diet, physical activity and a healthy weight all play an important protective role.
