Abstract

Why does south-east Asia have such a high prevalence of bile duct liver cancer? Dr Michael Smout of James Cook University, winner of science communication competition FameLab in Australia, explains the link between the deadly disease and a parasitic worm found in uncooked fish. Michael is competing at the FameLab international final in Cheltenham on 3-5 June 2014.
