About the event

Foods and Breast Cancer Survival: This bonus class looks at the research behind increased prevention and survival rates for those individ-uals diagnosed with breast cancer. Factors discussed include reduced fat intake, increased consumption of vegetables and fruits for a greater fiber intake, and exercise. In the lecture, Dr. Neal Barnard highlights various studies like the Women’s Healthy Eating and Living (WHEL) Study, which reported greater protec-tion from breast cancer when women consumed at least five vegetable and fruit servings daily. Foods and Prostate Cancer Survival: In this bonus class, discussion and lecture topics focus on the research demonstrating how a plant-based diet  prevents  and  increases  survival  rates  after  a  prostate  cancer  diagnosis.  Dr.  Neal  Barnard  touches  upon the research linking dairy product consumption to prostate cancer risk. Certain components of fruits and vegetables, like lycopene, have also proved beneficial for prostate cancer prevention and for reducing prostate cancer risk
