Research has shown a powerful connection between nutrition and cancer. We cannot change the genetic structure we were born with, and our genetic makeup is certainly a factor in whether we will develop cancer. Nevertheless, nutrition can play a vital role in cancer prevention and management by modifying the expression of our genes.
Cancer results from the complex interaction of many factors related to our environment, lifestyle, diet, and genetic makeup. — Thomas Slaga, PhD, ACRCF President and Founder
Our bodies have a wonderful natural process of detoxification. But when our diet overwhelms our detoxification system with carcinogens, we lessen our body’s ability to fight them. So even if you inherit genes predisposing you to cancer, a healthy diet and other healthy lifestyle habits can supercharge your detoxification system. That means you decrease your risk of developing cancer or, if you are a cancer patient, improve your well-being during treatment and thereafter.
To help you on your Ride to Wellness, we have assembled some useful guidelines on Healthy Eating and some fabulous day-to-day Recipes from “The Detox Revolution,” a book by ACRCF President and Founder Thomas J. Slaga, PhD, an internationally known cancer expert.
