Our new cancer prevention cookbook includes delicious ways to eat cancer-fighting foods.
If you have been considering giving patients a cookbook incentive for breast cancer awareness month or colon cancer awareness month, here are two good reasons to do so…
Two new medical studies confirm what many doctors and dietitians have endorsed for years – eating more fruits, vegetables and grains may help prevent cancer, especially breast and colon cancer.
For the first time, medical evidence has also identified the “wrong” foods to eat – foods that may increase your cancer risk. These include red meat and foods with lots of salt or fat.
Baldwin Publishing’s chefs and dietitians used information from these studies to create a new cancer prevention cookbook. The easy recipes in this vegetarian cookbook use the healthy ingredients the researchers recommend.
Many medical professionals have long endorsed a plant-based diet for cancer prevention. Now medical research proves that this is one of the best ways to reduce cancer risk. Suspicion that poor nutrition may lead to cancer was confirmed this spring with data from 48,835 women who participated in the Women’s Health Initiative study.
The study found that women who followed a lower-fat diet rich in fruits, vegetables and grains had a lower risk of dying of breast cancer compared to women who ate a higher-fat diet.
“It’s the first clinical trial evidence proving that diet can reduce post-menopausal women’s risk of dying of breast cancer,” said lead researcher Dr. Rowan Chlebowski of the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. The study also showed that most women can improve their health by making modest changes to what and how much they eat.
Another recent cancer study estimated that more than 80,000 new cancer cases in 2015 alone were caused by eating a poor diet – one that includes too much salt and not enough whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
“If Americans can improve our intake of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, many cancer cases, especially colon cancer, can be prevented,” said Dr. Fang Fang Zhang, the study’s lead author and an associate professor of epidemiology at Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.
Baldwin Publishing’s new cancer prevention cookbook is filled with vegetarian recipes that feature whole grains, fruits and vegetables – the healthy ingredients doctors and medical researchers recommend eating. Cookbooks can be branded and distributed by corporate and nonprofit organizations that promote good health.
