Today is World Cancer Day. February 4 also marks the day my father lost his battle against pancreatic cancer in 1988. So in honor of my dad, I am launching a year-long initiative to eat at least five servings of produce every day. I am inspired to do so because the National Cancer Institute and other experts suggest that people who eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day are less likely to develop cancer.
Will you keep me accountable by subscribing to this blog:
Please pass this link along to family and friends in honor of someone you know who is fighting cancer or a survivor. Or in memory of someone you have lost to the disease. This simple message – to eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day – can have a powerful impact on the lives of those around you.
p.s. I am nearing completion of my 700-hour nutrition consultant training program with Bauman College and one of the key lessons learned is that eating plenty of produce can help prevent most disease and lead to optimal health.
