Meat Institute staff was in Lisbon, Portugal over the weekend for Foodfluence, a conference for 32 of the leading nutrition communicators in the US. The Meat Institute and the Beef Checkoff sponsored a session called "The Diet Connection to Cancer: Understanding How Food Can Cause, Prevent or Impact Cancer Risk," which featured epidemiologist Dominik Alexander, Ph.D., and discussed the weak evidence linking meat and cancer. The conference also allowed for extensive networking time and solidifying relationships with key nutrition leaders. The Pork Checkoff also funded a session focused on pork production methods and protein consumption prior to the Meat Institute's session.
