Feb 16, 2022

Watch Episode 165 with Dr. Shireen Kassam:

According to WHO, cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020, or nearly one in six deaths. Many cancers can be cured if detected early and treated effectively. Studies have shown that an anti-cancer diet is an important strategy you can use to reduce your risk of cancer. 

To help us understand the role of food in preventing and curing illnesses, specifically cancer, we have Dr. Shireen Kassam, a certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician and co-author of the book Eating Plant-Based: Scientific Answers to Your Nutrition Questions. A certified CHIP (Complete Health Improvement Program) practitioner, she has immersed herself in the science of nutrition and health and completed the eCornell certification in plant-based nutrition. Her deep interest in the power of nutrition for the prevention and treatment of disease led her to follow a whole food plant-based diet. Dr. Shireen Kassam co-founded Plant-Based Health Online, the UK’s first online lifestyle medicine service, and Plant-Based Health UK, a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate health professionals on the benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition.
