About Coalition for Cancer Prevention
We are a coalition of volunteer health professionals and cancer survivors and their families dedicated to spreading the scientific information about links between food choices and cancer risk. We send speakers to schools, churches, civic organizations, and public events, and provide literature to any who request it. We particularly focus on the issue of reducing animal product consumption - dairy, eggs, meat, chicken and fish - all of which have been linked to higher risk of certain cancers - and the proper substitutes for these foods in the diet to assure adequate nutrition. Our President and founder is a Registered Dietitian and cancer survivor.
Who We Are
Health professionals, cancer survivors and their families who wish to disseminate info that links diet to cancer risk. Too many large cancer organizations receive funding from agribusinesses and food industry - especially dairy interests - so do not provide full information about the connections and what can be done to lower risk - choose plant-based milks (rice, almond, etc.), choose beans, nuts, and seeds for protein, etc.
Our Organization's Mission
Educate the public about dietary changes they can make to reduce their cancer risk.
Who We Serve
Public lectures, especially in schools and at events; literature displays, publication and dissemination of our book "Don't Let Your Diet Add to Your Cancer Risk".
