July 7 - August 4, 2015 | The Power of Food for Cancer Prevention and Survival

Certain diet patterns seem to have a major effect in helping cancer survivors to live longer, healthier lives. Numerous studies have shown that a diet built from plant foods offers the most cancer-fighting protection of any diet plan. Reviews by the American Institute for Cancer Research showed that as much as 40 percent of cancer risk may be related to diet. The Food for Life: Cancer Project classes offer a unique opportunity to acquire knowledge about the link between diet and cancer, experience the benefits of plant-based nutrition, and learn the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health. In the Food for Life: Cancer classes, attendees do all of this while enjoying a cooking demonstration and tasting delicious, healthful dishes.

When:

July 7, 6:00-8:00 p.m.: Introduction to How Foods Fight Cancer
