Introduction to How Foods Fight Cancer
Saturday, October 22, 2022 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM


Picture of the PowerPlate: beans, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables


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.

Join Food for Life Instructor Susannah Dickman for this exciting Lunch and Learn.


This class includes a video lecture by Dr. Neal Barnard, discussion, and cooking demonstration. Come learn and enjoy a delicious lunch that is full of cancer fighting nutrients and fiber.
