Studies show that diet plays a role in cancer initiation, promotion, progression, recurrence, and survival. This national webinar/teleconference focuses on the benefits of Japanese, Mediterranean, Vegetarian and Hunter-Gatherer Diets.
- How dietary variety, eating seasonally, eating more like our hunter-gatherer ancestors, and calorie restriction and intermittent fasting may help in the fight against cancer.
- How nutrients in food play a role in cancer cell multiplication, tumor growth, hormone levels, and cancer cell death.
- The relationship between cancer and the human ‘microbiome’- the 100 trillion bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other tiny microbes that live in our bodies.
