Replacing Meat to Reduce Cancer Risks
Thursday, October 5, 2023 6:30 PM ET to 8:00 PM ET

A plant-based diet helps to reduce cancer risk. There are many delicious forms of plant protein that are healthier than meat from animals. Red and processed meats contain harmful substances that can lead to colorectal cancer.

In the Food for Life cooking and nutrition class called Replacing Meat, you will discover a variety of plant-based sources of protein, all of which are low in fat, high in fiber, and loaded with cancer-fighting nutrients.

  • Learn about cancer-causing chemicals that tend to form within meat tissue when it is exposed to high temperatures, including grilling and broiling.

  • Compare the composition and nutrients in meat and fish with those of plant-based foods.

  • Hear from Dr. Neal Barnard in a video highlighting various studies that support the impact of plant-based nutrition.

  • Watch a live cooking demonstration with healthful, plant-based recipes you can make at home.
