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
