"Again and again, research shows that people eating diets with a moderate amount of seafood have lower risk of cancer and other chronic diseases and longer lives."

Skip the burger!
Try a Veggie Panini instead.

When I was growing up in the 1950's and 1960's, drunk driving was pretty much a joke. It was accepted behavior to get behind a wheel of a car drunk. That was until 1980, when a handful of grief-stricken mothers who had lost their children to drunk drivers, got together and formed MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. Their mission at that time was clear, yet must have seemed insurmountable: They wanted to create major social change in the attitude and behavior of Americans toward drunk driving. They succeeded in doing just that. It didn't happen overnight, but indeed they succeeded in doing just that.
In light of the sobering statistics at the right of this page, and with the numbers continuing to climb every year, my mission in 2015 is a parallel one.
Every day over 1500 people a day die from cancer.
1 out of every 3 women will get cancer in her lifetime.
1 out of every 2 men will get cancer in his lifetime.
Children being born today probably have a 50/50 chance of getting cancer in their lifetime.
Experts now estimate that 1/3 of all cancers can be avoided with diet and exercise.
Experts also now estimate that 50% of all cancers can be avoided with diet, exercise, and getting proper screenings..

"Believe you can and you're halfway there."
We need to create major social change in the attitude and behavior of Americans (and others) in the way we eat.
I'm not talking about switching to wheat grass and tofu. I'm talking about making better, sensible choices of what we put in our supermarket carts, what we order in restaurants. I’m talking about getting out of the fast food line, and back into the kitchen.
We have got to stop being complacent about this disease. No one, unfortunately, is immune from it. We are all at risk. We have all been touched by this disease at some point, all of us. We have it, had it, or watched a loved one with it. It is everywhere because we are in the middle of an epidemic! We HAVE to make this change. If not now, when? How much worse can the odds get? Experts now forecast that 2 in 3 children being born today will at some point in their lives get cancer. Are we going to wait until it's 3 out of 3? The time to act, to make a dietary change, is now today!
My book has been out, at this point, for a year and a half, and throughout my travels, quite frankly, I have seen too much. I've seen little children with brain tumors, grief-stricken children without moms or dads, and lonely, devastated spouses. I've talked to desperate patients whose doctors have no more to offer except a time-frame for how much life they may have left to live.
Even if a cure is found for one disease, it won't be found for all of them. There are over 100 different types of cancer. There is no magic pill that will take this away, but we have in our grasp the ability to stop 50% of this madness by making changes in our habits. We need to take hold, make the necessary changes, and help stop this epidemic.
