Event description

Description

Research has shown that certain diet patterns have a major effect in helping people diagnosed with cancer 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 shows that as much as 50 percent of cancer risk may be related to diet.

The PCRM Food for Life: Foods That Fight Cancer Program offer a unique opportunity to:

  • Acquire knowledge about the link between diet and cancer
  • Experience the benefits of plant-based nutrition
  • Learn the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health

In this cancer program, attendees learn all of this while enjoying cooking demonstrations, tasting delicious, healthful dishes and taking home useful class materials and recipes, all in a supportive group setting. The program covers the material from 4 weekly classes in a convenient 2-day combo class format, including all of the nutrition education and most of the recipes (10) from the series taught over 2 days, Sunday August 18th and August 25th, from 1-4pm. The program includes: Introduction to Foods that Fight Cancer, Fueling up on Low-Fat, High-Fiber Foods, Discovering Dairy and Meat Alternatives and Cancer Fighting Compounds and Healthy Weight Control. This class is limited to 8 participants. Early bird and buddy discounts are available.

Food for Life is a community-based nutrition education program of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). PCRM is a nonprofit organization of doctors and laypersons working together for compassionate and effective medical practice, reasearch, and health promotion.
