Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?

I stumbled upon this TED TALK and thought it was very intriguing! As a nursing student, I constantly see a variety of chronic diseases that are preventable. It really irritates me to see half of the patients on a hospital wing needing insulin for their diabetes when this disease could have been prevented with diet and exercise. Common chronic diseases in the US (hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease) are all linked to obesity. This video brings to light to the fact that obesity is also a key player in cancer. William Li suggests that we need to be on the offense, rather than the defense, when it comes to fighting off cancer. Please watch this video & let it change the way you think about food!
