Webinar: Newest Breakthroughs on Nutrition and Cancer Prevention

The complex plant kingdom contains many thousands of biologically active substances, called "phytochemicals".  "Phyto" means "plant". Many phytochemicals singly can decrease cancer cell growth, but in assorted combinations they function more geometrically than additively. This means that a variety of natural plant-derived foods are more effective than any extracts or supplements derived from a single plant source. Different combinations of foods are effective in preventing breast, colon, prostate or lung cancers.
