Half a century ago, the United States declared a “war on cancer,” yet current statistics predict that during our lifetime, one in eight women will develop breast cancer. 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, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine developed the Food for Life: Let’s Beat Breast Cancer curriculum based on our groundbreaking Cancer Project curriculum.

The first four Let’s Beat Breast Cancer classes include information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote or discourage growth of cancers of all types (including breast cancer), along with demonstrations of simple recipes that can be easily re-created at home. The final class focuses specifically on foods relevant to breast cancer risk reduction and survival.

The intended audience of the Food for Life: Let’s Beat Breast Cancer 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 series includes the evidence based science, discussion of the material, food demos, recipes, Q&A and optional ongoing support in a private Facebook group. This class meets on Zoom on 5 Sundays, Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, 2023 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. CT
