After decades of research showing that fruits and vegetables lower the risk of cancer, only 23 percent of Americans eat five servings a day.  Fewer people manage the 5 to 10 servings a day that AICR recommends.  The articles in this newsletter will give you the "how and why" to incoporate plant-based foods into your diet for delicious dishes and a healthy life.
