Downsize Your Dishes


Want to give yourself an advantage in reducing your risk of cancer? Go through your cupboards and ditch your dishes for new ones-smaller ones.

Portions are growing "and we're not burning all of these added calories."

Lab studies show animals that eat less get fewer cancels even when they're injected with cancer cell. "If you have just enough calories for you, you win." "Consume enough calories for you and a tumor, the tumor win."

"When people ask me what they should eat to prevent cancer, cancer prevention expert tell them:'less'"
