The effects of broccoli consumption in preventing prostate cancer is one of the key topics being discussed at the annual general meeting for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH). The meeting takes place at the John Innes Conference Centre on Thursday 27th September with an exhibition from 3pm and the AGM running from 3.30pm until 5.30pm.

The keynote speaker is Mr Rob Mills, consultant urologist and clinical director at NNUH, who will talk about the significant developments in prostate cancer research and the affects that diet may have on reducing prostate cancer risk

This groundbreaking research is taking place on Norwich Research Park with the Institute of Food Research and the University of East Anglia taking the lead in collaboration with NNUH hospital consultants.

This study has recently been backed by the Prostate Cancer Foundation which awarded $1M to study the effects of broccoli consumption on prostate cancer.
