ITV West – April 2010
As part of the ITV Westcountry report on a cancer awareness campaign held by the local Chinese Association, Vanessa Clarke came in store to film a few segments about the change in diet for Chinese people living in the area. It is believed that Chinese people adapting their diet to include more meat and dairy ingredients has led to an increase in numbers being diagnosed with cancer.
“The rate of cancer among Chinese people in Britain is increasing, and some health experts believe it could be because many are adopting a Western diet – high in meat and dairy products. It’s prompted the local Chinese community here in the South West to hold their first ever Cancer Awareness campaign.”
