2011 Bad Beat Thank You

Foundation News - Thank You! With the support of hundreds of players, Bad Beat on Cancer raised more than $125,000 at this year’s World Series of Poker ™ to help save lives through cancer prevention research, education and community outreach nationwide. Each year, nearly 1.6 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer, and sadly, over 550,000 will lose their battle. The Prevent Cancer Foundation is working to impact those statistics by funding research that unlocks the mysteries of cancer, and how to reduce your risk, and taking that knowledge to educate the public on how they can reduce their risk. Research suggests that only five percent of cancers are hereditary. That means the non-inherited causes of cancer — the lifestyle choices we make, the foods we eat, and our physical activity levels — have a direct impact on our overall cancer risk. This work would not be possible without the members of Team 1% -- and we thank you!

Healthy Eating - As part of my New Year’s resolutions this year, I have decided to go completely meatless for one month. My reasons are the following: a. In the past few years, I’ve considered going vegetarian but giving up meat is really hard. b. Reading about the way meat is processed freaks me out. c. Coincidentally—the next 31 days is a test to see if I can completely fulfill my commitment. I’ll be documenting the month through weekly blog posts, with ...
