Can Meat Take the Heat or Should it Get Out of the Kitchen?

The webinar, moderated by Richard C. Baybutt, PhD of East Carolina University, will discuss the evidence base behind the most recent World Cancer Research Fund/American Institute for Cancer Research (WCRF/AICR) Expert Panel report recommendations regarding meat intake; challenges and progress in the identification of specific individual HCA biomarkers and their isolation from human tissue; and challenges associated with estimating dietary HCA and PAH exposure using common dietary assessment techniques and publicly available HCA/PAH exposure estimation tools.

Topics of Discussion:

  • Are there Pathways Linking Dietary HCAs and PAHs from Meat to Cancer Risk?
  • The Importance of Uncertainty in the Estimation of Dietary HCA and PAH for Application in Health Impact Studies
  • Red Meat and Cancer Risk: Current Findings from the WCRF/AICR Expert Panel Report
  • Review strengths and limitations of epidemiological evidence on meat intake and cancer risk
