We all want to reduce our risk of getting cancer. It can be difficult to wade through the conflicting advice and sensational headlines.
Today I am talking to Dr Mhairi Morris, lecturer at Loughborough University UK and founder of Essential Cancer Education.
Mhairi explains (in simple terms) the current research. Which foods and diets will increase your risk of cancer, which won’t and which need more research to decide.
There is enough evidence to say that these diets can help reduce our risk of getting cancer.
You can combine intermittent fasting with either the ketogenic or Med Style Diets.
Mentioned by Mhairi: The Longevity Diet by Volter Longo

Unless you plan to become a marathon runner! If you’re overweight and want to make changes to lose weight, you’re better off making changes to your diet.

As the saying goes: You can’t out run a bad diet!

Heart disease causes a quarter of all deaths.
This includes all “cardiovascular disease”.
In the UK the death rate is falling due to advances in medical technology. However, more people are getting heart disease due to life style choices.
