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.
This class is part of the series Let's Beat Breast Cancer and focuses specifically on foods relevant to breast cancer risk reduction and survival. You will view a science and evidence-based nutrition video as well as demonstrations of simple recipes that can be easily re-created at home.
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. This class is not intended for individuals currently going through cancer treatment.
There will be ample time for questions and answers. You will leave this class with a clear understanding of how food is medicine!
Once registered, you will receive a Zoom link and handouts a day or two before the class begins.
