Eating Patterns to Lower Cancer Risk:
More than One Route to a Plant-Based Diet
View AICR's recorded Eating Patterns Webinar
Presented October 29, 2013
by Karen Collins, MS, RDN, CDN and Sharon Palmer, RD
A predominantly plant-based diet is one of the key elements in recommendations to reduce cancer risk. Multiple ways to achieve this have been identified. In this webinar, we will explore several different patterns: the research behind them and ways that they can be used or adapted to make it easier for people to find a diet to lower cancer risk that works for them as a long-term healthy lifestyle.
At the conclusion of this presentation, the participant will be able to:
- Identify, compare and contrast several different predominantly plant-based eating patterns.
- Explain current research findings regarding each of these patterns and the potential to reduce cancer risk.
- Describe practical steps for making various cancer-protective eating patterns practical and enjoyable.
- Translate lessons learned from different eating patterns to steps that can be applied to any eating pattern to enhance its healthfulness and flavor.
