Symposium Session #115048- "But I Saw It on the Internet!" — Helping People Distinguish Evidence-Based Strategies to Reduce Cancer Risk From Anecdotal Hearsay
Suggested CDR learning codes: 2000, 4000, 4040, 5150, 9020; Level 2
People are inundated with information about diet and lifestyle changes to reduce cancer risk, but much of it is based on anecdotal stories or single studies. How can RDs help people focus on the choices most likely to make a difference? In this session, current research and a review of evidence-based recommendations regarding diet, weight, and physical activity to reduce cancer risk will be discussed.
RDs will also be provided with an action plan to help their clients focus on nutritional changes that show the greatest promise in reducing cancer risk and key practical messages to share about putting research into practice.
