"Lowering Your Cancer Risk through Food Choices"
a presentation by George Eisman, MA, MSc, RD

Learn the latest about which foods lower cancer risk and which foods elevate risk, and how to substitute one for the other without risking nutritional deficiencies. Learn why many foods considered "Heart-Healthy" can actually raise cancer risk (and don't do much for your heart either).

He has taught nutrition at the college and university level at Florida State University, Broward Community College, Miami-Dade Community College and most recently at Cornell University in New York. He is the author of Don’t Let Your Diet Add to Your Cancer Risk and The Most Noble Diet.
