Lifelines 2 - Cancer and Nutrition Awareness
Narrator: This is Lifelines, from NIH Radio.
Robyn: Hello. I’m Dr. Tanya Agurs-Collins from the National Cancer Institute. Did you know that the foods you eat can play a role in your cancer risk? It’s true. People whose diets are rich in fruits and vegetables have a lower risk of getting several different types of cancer. They are also less likely to get diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. The National Cancer Institute offers a free cookbook called “Down Home Healthy Cooking” that has a healthful selection of cooking techniques, healthy food substitutions, plus dozens of recipes. To learn more about how diet may affect your cancer risk and to order the cookbook, visit www.cancer.gov or call 1-800-4-CANCER.
Narrator: Lifelines, from NIH Radio, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
