Diet and Cancer Research
Cancer is currently the second leading cause of death in America, following very closely behind heart disease. And like heart disease, many cancers can be prevented through dietary and lifestyle interventions. I am pleased to share with you some excellent resources offered by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). The Food For Life Cancer Project Diet and Cancer page examines factors that contribute to the development and progression of various cancers and how a whole-foods, nutrient-dense, plant-based diet can reduce the risk of developing cancer. This is an excellent place to become acquanted with foods that prevent cancer and to browse the their latest resources.
PCRM has produced the Cancer Survivors Guide which is an excellent book that I recommend to some of my patients. That book is the perfect companion to go along with the Eating Right for Cancer Survival DVD set. I also highly recommend my video on Cancer Prevention & Women's Health which has been very helpful to many people. You can watch the trailer below and purchase Cancer Prevention & Women's Health as a DVD or as buy it as Streaming Media at Vimeo. both are available from my online store at Veggievore.com.
