In honor of Breast Cancer awareness month, join plant based chef and Food for Life instructor Nancy Travis as we explore the power of food to regulate our hormones.
Certain cancers are significantly affected by hormones: breast, uterine, and ovarian cancer in women and prostate and testicular cancer in men. In this class we will look at the latest research from the book “Your Body in Balance” by Dr Neal Barnard published in 2020 examining the role certain foods play in possibly reducing the risk for cancer and help enhance survival for those who have been diagnosed. This class will include a video, quiz, cooking demo, recipes, handout on food choices for cancer survival, as well as lots of tips and tricks for plant-based eating from Nancy.
This class was developed by Food for Life, an award-winning nutrition education and cooking program created by a team of physicians, nurses and dietitians for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
