Dr Russ Blog - Foods Fighting Cancer - A Resource
Foods Fighting Cancer - A Resource
Created on 5/21/2013

I meet with many people who want to figure out how they should eat in order to stay healthy, and at the same time be able to enjoy a satisfying diet. A lot of folks still think that healthy food = tasteless food. And that's not true. One need only look at Dr. Andrew Weil's latest cookbook, True Food (Little, Brown and Company), to see how delicious healthy fare can be. This blog offers guidance based on data and common sense that readers can choose to participate in. It also functions to recommend other resources that shoppers could benefit from accessing, so here's a resource you should know about - The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). AICR provides a lot of things, including great information on which foods look to be most important for promoting health and helping to prevent cancer - check it out here - http://www.aicr.org/foods-that-fight-cancer/ On this site you'll learn more about the benefits of blueberries, coffee, leafy greens and more - and have access to research data you can share with loved ones and your doctor. Of course, you don't have to eat everything listed by AICR - but if you can make even small substitutions of healthier foods for not-so-healthy stuff you stand a better chance of feeling and likely staying healthy. Be well.
