NEWS RELEASE October 4, 2004

PCRM Hosts Free Cooking Demo and Nutrition Talk for Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Suburban Hospital on Oct. 20

BETHESDA, Md.—Nutritionists with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and The Cancer Project, a new PCRM affiliate, will host a free community event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Suburban Hospital on Wednesday, October 20, at 6:30 p.m. The program is also sponsored by the Council on Humane Giving.

What: A free two-hour program, “Eating Right for Breast Cancer Prevention & Survival,” will feature a vegetarian cooking demonstration and a nutrition talk. Free booklets on good nutrition, as well as information on advances in humane breast cancer research, will also be available.

When: 6:30-8:30 p.m., Wednesday, October 20, 2004

Where: Suburban Hospital Conference Center, 8600 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda, MD

Cost: The event is free, but registration is required. Please RSVP to 202-686-2210, ext. 300

Why: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but many Americans don’t realize what an important role good nutrition can play in helping to battle this disease. A growing body of literature shows that a low-fat, plant-based diet may help with prevention and aid in survival.

Founded in 1985, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a nonprofit health organization that promotes preventive medicine, conducts clinical research, and encourages higher standards for ethics and effectiveness in research.
