Truth or Scare?

26 February, 2016

Professor David Phillips, Genetic & Environmental Toxicology Group, Analytical & Environmental Sciences Division was interviewed for the BBC 1 programme Food; Truth or Scare, looking at the cancer risk from red and processed meat. 

Professor Phillips was interviewed as part of the programme's investigation into whether we should really be giving up bacon and sausages, after new research suggested they're bad for us. The programme also explored why eggs, for years demonised as unhealthy, are now firmly back in fashion and apparently now about as healthy as you can get. Could butter or dripping be next?
