"I am delighted to announce that Dr E. Inan-Eroglu and colleagues from the University of Sydney, Australia are this year's winners of the British Journal of Nutrition Paper of the Year competition for their paper entitled "Joint association of alcohol consumption and adiposity with alcohol and obesity-related cancer in a population sample of 399,575 UK adults".
Congratulations to Dr Inan-Eroglu and colleagues who will now be invited to present their work described in this paper at the Nutrition Society's Summer Conference in Liverpool (see here).
As always, we had a very strong short-list of papers covering a wide range of topics from those that investigated molecular mechanisms (e.g. effects of fasting on the kynurenine pathway), through epidemiological studies (e.g. vitamin B12 and folate status among vegans) to clinical nutrition (a randomised controlled studies in people with renal disease). Congratulations to all authors of the short-listed papers.

British Journal of Nutrition
We spoke to lead author Dr E. Inan-Eroglu about their research:
Winning the British Journal of Nutrition Paper of the Year 2022 is a tremendous honour and we are truly humbled. This award is especially gratifying as it recognizes our ongoing research program into the joint effects of alcohol consumption and other lifestyle-related factors such as obesity on non-communicable disease risk and cancer in particular. We hope that our paper will bring greater awareness to the potential risks associated with alcohol and obesity and help reduce the burden of cancer in the community.
This paper was selected from the shortlisted papers by an independent panel of experts including past Presidents of The Nutrition Society and a global leading nutrition expert from outside the UK.
