Foods with low nutritional quality tied to higher cancer risk, reveals study

We know that a diet packed with sugary, fatty foods and a lack of exercise can make us more prone to developing a host of life-shortening illnesses, but this is thought to be the first large study to focus on the link between the nutritional content of our food and cancer
