The Cancer Project = diet and you!

Want to change up your diet in 2008 and get some long term dietary heath goals? The Cancer Project, an independent, separately incorporated affiliate of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, advances cancer prevention and survival through nutrition education and research.

They will be offering classes starting January the 8th at Abbot-Kinney Memorial Library. A list of the classes can be found here. They also have great nutritional guides on the site!

From their web site:

The Cancer Project has two main goals: First, we aim to make cancer prevention a top priority. Just as important, we want to improve survival after cancer has been diagnosed by providing comprehensive information about the role of dietary factors in keeping people healthy.

With over one million people being diagnosed with cancer in the United States each year—and many more cases in other countries across the globe—there is an urgent need for a new direction in battling this disease. The Cancer Project provides classes, books, video programs, fact sheets, brochures, and other educational materials on cancer prevention and survival. We also conduct clinical research studies to investigate dietary issues and publicize the need for cancer prevention and the value of healthy diet changes. The Cancer Project’s hands-on nutrition classes have become incredibly popular, helping cancer survivors and their families learn new tastes and easy food preparation skills.
