Dr. Thomson explains if an alkaline diet will decrease a woman's cancer risk.
That’s a really interesting question. There’s been a lot of interesting pre-clinical data that suggests that, and I actually have a graduate, or a young faculty member right now who just got an award, career development award to look into that in terms of his research, and I just don’t think we know. It’s still unknown at this point in time, but it is a hypothesis we are testing, and people are getting creative about how we could test it.
