  • Dairy and Cancer Risk 

Introduction to Cancer Risk

Did you know that your body suffers up to 37,000,000,000,000,000,000 DNA breaks per day? With so many DNA mistakes occurring in our cells, then why don't we all get cancer?

In this module you will learn…

  • Why we don’t all get cancer – despite all the DNA damage we experience day after day Why cancer rates are on the rise 
  • Which biological changes need to occur in order to create a true cancer cell
  • How our bodies repair damage to cells and DNA
  • The nutritional and lifestyle changes that can help us to reduce cancer risk

Red Meat and Cancer Risk

Headlines often link red meat with cancer. Some go as far as saying that red meat “kills”. Why are these claims being made? And what is in red meat that is not found in other animal products? Before we set off any panic alarms about red meat, let’s review the current scientific evidence, in an unbiased way.

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether red meat causes cancer 
  • The kinds of studies that have shown a link between red meat and cancer 
  • Whether there’s any biological evidence
  • What it is in read meat that we don’t see in other meats

Dairy and Cancer Risk

While many endorse the health benefits of a high-dairy diet, some believe that such practices among adults are highly unnatural, and may even cause cancer. So, which is it; health food or hazardous material? Let’s dive into the world of dairy, nutrition, and oncology to find out.

In this module you will learn…

  • If dairy really causes cancer, and the evidence behind this debate
  • Whether or not dairy is fit for human consumption
  • Why scientific studies on dairy seem to contradict each other, and how we can make sense of them 
  • Whether hormones in milk are a problem where you live
