JaQuitta Williams discussed diet and cancer during our monthly look at cancer-related health issues on Your Health Connection. Our informative guest was Registered Dietician Marisa Moore.
Does what you eat make it more likely you will get cancer? Can you choose to eat in ways that minimize certain cancers? What about diet when you are a cancer survivor? We'll take your calls and tweets live as we talk about an issue that is relevant to everyone who eats.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from the Center For Cancer Research And Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University and Your Health Connection! As we get together with family and friends over the holidays and enjoy our yams and hams and pumpkin pie, maybe a little spiked eggnog, it's important to remember that eating healthy today is one way to improve your chances of being cancer-free later.
