Prof Soterios Kyrtopoulos - National Hellenic Research Foundation, Athens, Greece

Prof Kyrtopoulos speaks with ecancertv at Childhood Cancer 2016 about the NewGeneris project, monitoring maternal diet and establishing biomarkers associated with childhood disease.

He outlines the presence of micronuclei, among other biomarkers, as a 'warning sign' for childhood disease, and discusses food groups known to contain oncogenic chemicals.

In summary, Prof Kyrtopoulos describes dietary awareness and changes by customers and food manufacturers that can reduce exposure.
