Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Show your support by taking a simple challenge to eat 30 healthy foods in 30 days! 1 in 9 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetimes. If you are African American, that number increases by 76%.

We know that 30% of cancer is preventable with lifestyle factors. Eating healthy and exercising can prevent any number of chronic diseases, and in some cases, like diabetes, it can even help reverse some of the most dangerous effects. Whether you or someone you love had been affected by prostate cancer – or if you just want to learn the principles of a healthy lifestyle – you can join in the challenge this September.
