Eating Well for Cancer Care and Prevention with Crystal Cascio

May 11 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Eating well for cancer prevention has never been more confusing. Nutrition advice for cancer prevention can often appear conflicting. We are living in an ever-expanding age of “nutritionism”, where we focus so much on nutrients and components that make up our food rather than on food itself. As a result, eating healthy for cancer prevention has become unnecessarily complex and sadly, stressful! Each day we are faced with conflicting messages about nutrition and health from the media, food and supplement industries, family, peers, and so-called professionals.
The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center presents Crystal Cascio, RDN to debunk common myths related to nutrition and cancer. She will explain the evidence-based essentials for properly nourishing your body for cancer prevention. After attending this presentation, you will have a better understanding of:
1. The benefits of consuming a primarily plant-based diet for cancer prevention
2. Certain foods that contain anti-cancer properties
3. Foods that have been associated with increased cancer risk
Crystal Cascio is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor passionate about eating well for cancer care and prevention. After receiving her degree in nutrition and dietetics from the University of New Hampshire, she went on to pursue her M.S. degree in clinical nutrition from New York University. Crystal specializes in helping people make peace with food and learn how to properly nourish themselves to improve their health and well-being. Crystal believes in the importance of looking at all aspects of lifestyle and taking a personalized, holistic approach toward optimal health and well-being.
