Description of Service
One primary focus of CACE’s work is geared towards cancer prevention education through lifestyle training. These lifestyle factors include diet, exercise, stress management, environmental exposures and detoxification. Our thrust is primary prevention, not just early detection. The following are some of the highlights of CACE’s prevention efforts to date:
-Focusing on prevention of cancer and prevention of recurrence by creating awareness of science-based factors that cause or contribute to cancer growth
-Providing individualized, one-on-one, lifestyle risk factor assessments that go far beyond classical risk factors, and then helping clients design game plans to address those factors through personalized resources and referrals
-Encouraging clients to pay attention to biological terrain and biochemical individuality as key ways to evaluate and minimize risk for disease
-Conducting hundreds of classes, workshops and lectures on cancer prevention, including Food Preparation for Cancer Prevention; Breast Cancer: Is it What You're Eating or What's Eating You?; Prostate Cancer: The Diet Connection; Cancer Prevention Lifestyle; and Are You Digging Your Grave With Your Fork?
-Designing and implementing a series of dinner lectures on dietary prevention of cancer at Philadelphia area health food markets and restaurants
-Creating, organizing and presenting 12 annual Food & Health Expo honoring National Nutrition Month each March, featuring prominent speakers and quality exhibitors targeting improved nutrition awareness
-Teaching cancer prevention in health education classes in local elementary, middle and high schools. CACE believes that health-promoting habits are formed early in life
-Developing and distributing various audiotapes and videotapes of our prevention information, including the popular video, Breast Cancer: The Diet Connection
-Publishing Immune Perspectives magazine for 12 years and Health News & Views newsletter for 20 years - both focusing on immunopotentiation and cancer prevention
-Sponsoring a research study (now in final stages of completion) on perceived psycho-social support as an unrecognized risk factor for cancer in a population of 1,452 women. This is a triple track, retrospective, longitudinal study.
