We can greatly reduce the risk of breast cancer with healthy lifestyle choices, including a plant-centered diet. For October, Plant-Based Pittsburgh is partnering with Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine   for their Let’s Beat Breast Cancer, a 4-Pronged Approach campaign:

     1) Choose Plant-Based Foods
     2) Exercise Regularly
     3) Limit Alcohol
     4) Maintain a Healthy Weight

Take the Pledge to try out these four steps for a month; you’ll be entered to win a grand prize pack! You’ll also receive a free e-cookbook and four emails with tips, recipes, & support.

All October sales of the book will be donated to PCRM.org in support of their mission to save and improve human and animal lives through plant-based diets and ethical and effective scientific research.
