Healthy Eating & Cancer Prevention

How does what I eat affect my risk of cancer? One in three of us will be diagnosed with cancer during our lifetime so it is important to be aware of what we might be able to modify, including diet and exercise.

In this webinar, we will look at foods that support a healthy immune system and reduce chronic inflammation, as well as foods that should be avoided. We will also explore how lifestyle is also an important aspect of healthy eating patterns. A new understanding of the key role of the gut microbiome underscores the crucial role food and lifestyle play in supporting a robust and diverse microbiome. For example, some of us may be able to eat a broader range of foods than others as a result of this and other digestive health factors. Join us to help identify your personal risk factors and some easy steps to reduce them.

Registrants will receive the Zoom link one hour prior to the start of the session.
