Food for Life is an award-winning Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) program designed by physicians, nurses, and registered dietitians that focuses on the lifesaving effects of healthful eating.
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.
You will enjoy four weekly classes, each class lasting two hours. Receive cutting edge scientific information on diet, nutrition and disease, as well as a weekly cooking demonstration, along with food sampling of the most delicious and nutritious plant based dishes like Sweet-and-Sour Stir-Fry and Chocolate Mousse with Fresh Fruit.
