Cancer is a personal story for all of us.

This is why we are working on prevention, early diagnosis, and equal access to care.

Ahead of #WorldCancerDay and a year since the #EUCancerPlan, we are launching 4️new actions with specific objectives.
Here they are: ⬇️ Image
Objective 1 ➞ Everyone in our 🇪🇺 Union should get the cancer treatment they need.

Our Cancer Inequalities Registry will help identify and tackle inequalities in cancer prevention and care due to gender, educational attainment and disparities between regions.

#EUCancerPlan Image
Objective 2 ➞ Ensuring 90% of the EU population who qualify for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screenings are offered it by 2025.

Finding cancer at an early stage can save lives. This is why a cancer screening call for evidence is important.

Firstly, we worked on procuring vaccines to Europeans.

A broad portfolio was created and today more than 70% of the adult population is fully vaccinated.

In the spirit of European solidarity, we mobilised funding to support:

🩺 the delivery of equipment, medicines, antigen tests
🔬 urgent research into variants

More than €7.6 billion was reallocated under the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative.

I applaud the #EUCancerPlan *BUT* caution: putting #meat 🥩 (a nourishing, evolutionary food) in the same box as 🚬 to solve a contemporary health challenge, would be basing policy on assumptions rather than robust data.

#FollowTheScience yes, but not just part of it!
1/ Granted, some studies have pointed to ASSOCIATIONS of HIGH intake of red & processed meats with (slightly!) increased colorectal cancer incidence. Also, @WHO/IARC is often mentioned in support (usually hyperbolically so).

But, let’s have a closer look at all this! 🔍
2/ First, meat being “associated” with cancer is very different from stating that meat CAUSES cancer.

Unwarranted use of causal language is widespread in nutritional sciences, posing a systemic problem & undermining credibility.…
