Dozens of studies are reviewed as “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Lee Crosby, RD, who will have you rethinking everything you thought you knew about soy. Is it a cancer-fighting powerhouse or a cancer-causing calamity? We have an answer!

Chuck is also joined by breast cancer survivor Christine Collins who shares her inspiring story. The mother of two young daughters had her world turned upside down by the initial diagnosis and was rocked harder after doctors discovered the cancer was more advanced than originally thought. But Christine would not be deterred and immediately turned to a plant-based diet for help. Flash forward six years and she’s still amazing her doctors today!

Kristi Funk, MD, steps back into The Exam Room with Chuck to discuss the third of four steps to reduce the risk of cancer as part of our Let's Beat Breast Cancer campaign! The third step is all about limiting the amount of alcohol you drink. As Dr. Funk explains, alcohol has been shown to significantly increase cancer risk regardless of what type of drink it is.
