We have all seen the news stories: ‘being tall increases your risk of cancer,’ ‘processed meat ranks alongside smoking for causing cancer’, ‘green tea may improve cancer drugs’. But what is the truth behind the headlines?

Join researchers from the Department of Oncology and media experts Dr Kat Arney and Martin Robbins as they explore the science behind such health stories. Audience members are encouraged participate in an interactive quiz to separate fact from fiction.

Booking essential.
