"The single easiest and best thing most of us can do to prevent cancer or its recurrence is to eat right," says Jennifer Reilly, R.D., a senior nutritionist for The Cancer Project. "More than a third of all cancer deaths in this country are due to poor diet."
The Cancer Project, a national nonprofit dedicated to advancing cancer prevention through education and research, is offering a free cooking class designed to help Colorado Springs residents prevent and survive cancer through proper diet and nutrition.
It will be held Tues., Oct. 26, 6 to 7:30 p.m., First Presbyterian Church, 219 E. Bijou St., Colorado Springs.
For more information call 719-884-6145.
The Cancer Project is a collaborative effort of physicians, researchers, and nutritionists who have joined together to educate the public about the benefits of a healthy diet for cancer prevention and survival. Based in Washington, D.C., The Cancer Project is a program of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
