    Nutrition for Cancer Survivors

    I work with CTChallenge, a Connecticut based cancer survivorship non profit.

    Our mission is to "empower cancer survivors to live longer, happier, healthier lives by creating and funding unique programs, offering credible resources and building a community of support."

    Part of that mission is series of videos to help inform those surviving and suffering from the disease. These include series on nutrition, pilates, yoga, and a variety of other topics. All featuring qualified experts on their respective topics.

    We recently did a series on Nutrition for those interested:

    Left my embrace to live with our Heavenly Father in October of 2007 and now breathes with ease forever. I will miss this gentle, giving soul with the easy smile for the rest of my days, but have faith we will be together again. He's just getting a little break from me!

    No single food or food component can protect you against cancer by itself. But strong evidence does show that a diet filled with a variety of plant foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans helps lower risk for many cancers. Here is the list of food:

    Broccoli & Cruciferous Vegetables
    Legumes (Dry Beans, Peas & Lentils)
    Squash (Winter)
    Dark Green Leafy Vegetables
    Grapes and Grape Juice
    Green Tea
    Whole Grains
