Abstract: We prove slicing inequalities for measures of the unit balls of subspaces of $ L_p$, $ -\infty <p<\infty .$ For example, for every $ k\in \mathbb{N}$ there exists a constant $ C(k)$ such that for every $ n\in \mathbb{N},\ k<n$, every convex $ k$-intersection body (unit ball of a normed subspace of $ L_{-k})$ $ L$ in $ \mathbb{R}^n$ and every measure $ \mu $ with non-negative even continuous density in $ \mathbb{R}^n,$

$\displaystyle \mu (L)\ \le \ C(k) \max _{\xi \in S^{n-1}} \mu (L\cap \xi ^\bot )\ \vert L\vert^{1/n} \ ,$

where $ \xi ^\bot $ is the central hyperplane in $ \mathbb{R}^n$ perpendicular to $ \xi ,$ and $ \vert L\vert$ is the volume of $ L.$ This and other results are in the spirit of the hyperplane problem of Bourgain. The proofs are based on stability inequalities for intersection bodies and estimates for the Banach-Mazur distance from the unit ball of a subspace of $ L_p$ to the class of intersection bodies.
