Foundation News / Healthy Eating - Healthy Eating is one of the most important things you can do to prevent cancer. The Prevent Cancer Foundation asked Dr. Ann Kulze, noted nutrition and wellness expert, to create a mix full of fruits, seeds, and other ingredients that are both delicious and good for you. Hence, the Prevent Cancer Foundation Trail Mix was born. The Prevent Cancer Foundation Trail Mix features dry roasted almonds, diced unsulphured Fuji apples, organic diced apricots, organic wild blueberries, Brazil nuts, organic dark chocolate chips, roasted pistachios, organic pumpkin seeds, roasted soy nuts and organic raw walnuts. It is a “must have” for hikers, bikers, runners or for people who just want to incorporate regular exercise into their routine. For every bag of Prevent Cancer Foundation Trail Mix sold, $1 will be donated to fund cancer prevention and early detection research, community outreach and educational programs nationwide. To order your very own 14 ounce bag or 1.5 ounce snack packs, visit https://www.mymixednuts.com/featured-mixes/14/prevent-cancer-foundation-trail-mix.

The first 6 years were great, but in February 1992 everything changed. Dean was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. Dean’s PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) level was 883; the traditional PSA level of 4.0 is considered a reasonable threshold for further evaluation. The cancer had already spread to his bones. As Dean ...

Creamy Tarragon Chicken Salad

Healthy Eating - Reduced-fat sour cream and mayo make a sumptuous, creamy dressing for a considerably lightened take on chicken salad.

Yield: 8 servings, 1 cup each Total Time: 1 3/4 hours (including 1 hour chilling ...
