“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”

I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”

“If you are a Human Resources or wellness professional looking to take your employee health and well-being strategies to the next level, the Anticancer Lifestyle Program is unrivaled. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Offering this course to all of our employees really underscores how much we care about them and their loved ones.”

Sources of Quality Animal Protein

In general, the best label terms to look for would be Organic and Pastured, or 100% grass fed.

  • Grass-fed and pastured meats contain more Omega-3 fatty acids and less of the inflammatory Omega 6’s.
  • The certified USDA organic seal is once again an overall good guarantee that the meat and dairy have been raised in a humane and nontoxic environment.

In addition to reading food labels, you should also consider the source of the meat you purchase. Whenever possible, try to buy locally-sourced meat from farmers markets or butcher shops.

  • “Local” is no guarantee of quality however, so be sure to ask the farmer how the animals were raised and slaughtered.
  • If you buy meat at your local grocer, read the labels carefully and choose the highest quality meat you can afford.

In summary, when you do eat meat, remember to follow these healthy tips:

  • Limit factory farmed red meat and processed meats. More research on the impact of grass-fed meats and cancer is needed.
  • Pair your meat dishes with vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, whole grains.
  • Know the source of your food and buy locally.
  • When local meat is not a choice, look for USDA certified organic meats.
  • Minimize the formation of carcinogens such as HCAs by using acidic marinades that include citrus juices which have been shown to reduce the formation of HCAs when grilling.
  • You can also precook meats in the microwave, cook thin portions to speed cooking, and avoid well-done meats to limit grill time.
