Most Americans are aware of research that shows the linkages between eating habits and the risk for several types of cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that as many as 35 percent of cancer deaths may be related to food alone. Which foods are associated with a lower cancer risk? For sure, organic fruits and vegetables are prime candidates. So, how can you increase your consumption of fresh produce in simple ways? Dr. Price and Chef Emily will show you how to make several meals containing organic and sustainable ingredients that are known to be the most protective against cancer.
