About this episode

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide. With up to 70% of new cases predicted to occur in the developing world, finding affordable and effective cancer preventive agents for global use is critical. Dr Elizabeth Ryan, from the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University, has been working on precisely this. Her team’s goal is to prove the disease-prevention efficacy and mechanisms for whole foods in people that have supporting evidence for protection against colon cancer in animals.
