National Cancer Prevention Month

Cancer awareness ribbons

Did you know that there are roughly 1.7 million1 new cases of cancer each year just in the United States alone? The positive news is that many of these cases are preventable, and that’s why National Cancer Prevention Month is so important. The National Foundation for Cancer Research encourages the public to study, adopt and encourage cancer-preventative habits during the month of February.

As nutrition professionals, we can do our part by not only adopting these healthy habits ourselves but by encouraging our clients and/or patients to do the same.
