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 Beat Breast Cancer class includes 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 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. _____________________________ The format for the class is as follows: Show a video from Dr. Neal Barnard who will explain the science/research behind how foods can impact breast cancer We will collectively take a multiple-choice quiz to further help drive home the highlights Cooking demo Q & A for Dr. Loomis who will be live on the call also. I encourage you to cook with me during class! These recipes are from PCRM and are intended to be very simple. ***You will receive the recipes 3 days before class. There is NO RECORDING OFFERED after the class. You must attend live.*** You will receive the Zoom link 30 minutes prior to class.
