When someone tells you about some food that cures this or helps that, do you believe them? How do any of us know what is embellished and what is legitimate?
That’s what Nutrition Science is for. Say you heard or read somewhere that the yellow spice Turmeric is “anti-cancer”. This is a bold claim. Wouldn’t you want to see the proof, or at least some kind of evidence?
Back in 2013, I did a cooking demonstration/presentation to the Cancer Support Community. I used “anti-cancer” or “immune boosting” ingredients, and then did a power point on the SPECIFICS of how food is medicine. No catch phrases or vague references. Facts. Tangible evidence… and a whole lot of it, at that.
If you’d like to see some specifics on cancer fighting foods and general guidelines, check out the slides from my presentation here. Food IS Medicine(1)<—– PowerPoint slides. I did video tape the presentation, because the slides are only a fraction of what was covered, but the audio was rendered useless when the AC kicked in. ::facepalm::
I still think you’ll enjoy it, and perhaps even be blown away (as I continue to be) at the millions of ways foods affect us on the cellular level. Luckily, all of these tiny details can be covered by making smart choices in your diet.
