Gong sounds against cancer

Rob Ramaker

Ellen Kampman, professor of Nutrition and Cancer, got to open the Amsterdam stock exchange AEX on Monday 23 February.

She sounded the gong at Beursplein  5 to set stock trading in motion and to launch an awareness-raising programme  about cancer prevention. In the coming weeks there will be adverts on  radio and TV telling people that exercise, a healthy diet and maintaining a  healthy weight reduce the chances of  getting cancer considerably. Look on the  website for a short  film of the stock exchange opening .
