Huntsman Cancer Institute and Harmons Grocery have partnered to develop an everyday shopping list to assist and educate about the importance of nutrition, diet, and eating healthy to reduce cancer risk.
Approximately one-third of all cancer deaths in the United States are related to diet, obesity, and physical inactivity. Getting to and staying at a healthy weight is important to reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes. Many individuals feel overwhelmed and discouraged by the abundance of food options and do not know where or how to start eating healthy.
The Cancer-Fighting Foods Shopping List was created by HCI, with input from Registered Dieticians at Harmons. It lists suggestions that can help lower an individual’s chances of developing cancer, and contains grocery items based off “Foods That Fight Cancer” from the American Institute for Cancer Research. It also includes suggested tips for healthy grocery shopping and promotes Harmons’ Dieticians Choice Program.
