The author of “Breasts: The Owner’s Manual” joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to kick off the monthlong Let’s Beat Breast Cancer podcast series that will bring that same hope and inspiration to thousands of others around the world.

Dr. Funk, who has worked with Academy Award winning actress Angelina Jolie and Grammy Award winning singer Sheryl Crow, will shatter myths surrounding breast cancer and shed new light on the disease:

  • What really causes cancer
  • Why genes are important, but they’re not everything
  • How soy helps to fight and not cause cancer
  • Other cancer fighting foods you should be eating
  • Don’t be fooled into eating a high-fat diet
  • Why keeping meat off your plate lowers the risk of cancer
  • The benefits of green tea

Dr. Funk is spearheading the Physicians Committee’s Let’s Beat Breast Cancer campaign and leading the charge for the four-pronged approach to fighting back against a disease that one out of eight women will be diagnosed with in their lifetime.

  1. Choose plant-based foods
  2. Exercise
  3. Limit alcohol consumption
  4. Work toward and maintain a healthy weight
