LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning this month, Public Television stations nationwide will air A World Without Cancer: The Real Promise of Prevention, hosted by Margaret I. Cuomo, MD. The program should educate and inspire viewers about ten lifestyle changes, including a healthy diet and regular exercise, that they can make every day to help lower the risk of cancer, a disease that can be attributed to many factors.
Dr. Cuomo is a board-certified radiologist and expert in cancer radiology. Along with other leading medical and scientific experts, she will guide viewers through a series of recommendations to help reduce the risk of cancer. Award-winning documentarian Ken Burns and singer/songwriter Valerie Simpson will offer an intimate look at the ways in which cancer has profoundly affected their lives.
Dr. Cuomo's tips include limiting red meat and foods that contain potentially harmful chemicals. Instead Dr. Cuomo recommends seeking out natural* or organic lean meats like Plainville Farms® Turkey and FreeBird® Chicken (Plainville Farms is a sponsor of the program). Dr. Cuomo also recommends looking for minimally processed products and whole fruits and vegetables.
"The closer food looks to the way it is in nature," says Dr. Cuomo, "the better you can tell that it's nutritious, and a good part of a healthful diet, which along with exercise can promote overall health."
"We are pleased to sponsor this important program designed to help people achieve a healthy lifestyle," expressed Jay Lieberman, Chief Executive Officer of Hain Pure Protein Corporation, a division of The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. "We share Dr. Cuomo's passion for healthy living through dietary practices like eating a variety of foods, including lean protein, and getting regular physical activity to maintain a healthy body weight."
