[MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER: Cancer. In Western countries, about one in three
people will be diagnosed with cancer. Did you know that about 40% of these
cancer cases could have been prevented? The food we eat, the amount of exercise
we do, the lifestyle choices we make, all of these factors can
have an impact on our cancer risk. So what should people do to reduce
their risk of developing cancer? The World Cancer Research
Fund has made a list of recommendations for
cancer prevention based on the analysis of thousands
of scientific studies. In our online course,
Nutrition and Cancer, we will explain these
recommendations to you. We will discuss potential
biological mechanisms through which nutrition can impact
cancer development and progression. You will learn more
about nutrition research and the critical role nutrition plays
during and after cancer treatment. We will also discuss why some people
develop cancer while others do not. We know that nutrition
and lifestyle matter. There is so much that people can do to
lower their risk of developing cancer. This message is crucial. So how do we get this message out to
the general public and cancer patients in order to help them
make healthy choices? This course was developed specifically
with health professionals in mind. You can follow this
class for free, or you can choose to pay a small
fee to receive a certificate after the successful
completion of the course. Enroll now and gain the information
that you need to better advise your patients and clients. Armed with knowledge,
health professionals can help people make the right
choices that can effectively improve their overall health. [MUSIC PLAYING]
