After reading an article in our local newspaper I signed up for "Food for Life" cooking classes sponsored by the Cancer Project. I had heard of this program several months ago on TV but this group had no local programs then, but happily now they do. There is the website with recipes and more. Below is some basic info. Check with your local ACS or cancer facility to see if they are active in your community.
Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
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.
The Cancer Project advances cancer prevention and survival through nutrition education and research. 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. Staff members are regularly interviewed by the media and often give public lectures.
