Food for Life: Cancer Class

Tuesday, Aug. 13 - Tuesday, Sep. 10, 2019  |  PCRM Office, 5100 Wisconsin Ave NW Ste 400, Washington, DC, DC 20016

More than four decades ago, the United States declared a “war on cancer,” yet current statistics predict that during our lifetime, one in two men and one in three women will develop cancer. 

This amounts to 1.5 million people being diagnosed with cancer in the United States each year, and cancer causing nearly one-quarter of every death in America. Research has shown that more than one-third of all cancer deaths in the United States are due to poor diet, yet most are unaware of the connection. Faced with these startling statistics, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine developed the Food for Life: Cancer Project curriculum to offer a new direction in battling this disease. The Food for Life: Cancer Project classes include information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote or discourage cancer growth, along with demonstrations of simple recipes that can be easily recreated at home. The intended audience of the Food for Life: Cancer Project classes are cancer survivors and their family and friends as well as those looking to prevent the disease. These classes are not intended for individuals currently going through cancer treatment.

This is a FREE 5 class series on Tuesday nights at 6pm starting August 13 and going through September 10. Participants must register to attend.
