This week we're inviting you to send in questions to Lynne Garton, a qualified Nutritionist and Dietitian with over 20 years of experience. She has a first class degree in Nutrition from King's College, London and a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics and has practised as a clinical Dietitian both in acute and community health settings. Lynne is has recently been involved in TV programmes such as the Truth About Food (BBC). She is working with WellWoman Cancer insurance from Chartis, to provide dietary advice on how to keep healthy, now and for the future.

Approximately one in three people in the UK will develop cancer at some point during their lifetime, however experts believe a number of these cancers could be avoided by making changes to our diet and lifestyle. A recent report stated that more than one third of the most UK common cancers could be prevented by following a healthy diet, being more physically active and maintaining an ideal weight.

Lynne is happy to answer your questions on the importance of a good diet, as well as tell you the foods we should be eating more of, and those we should be cutting down on, to maintain health and to reduce our risk of diseases such as cancer. Send in your questions to Lynne by midday on Tuesday 5th July. Click here for more information on WellWoman cancer insurance.
