Last week's Cure Breast Cancer for ME Luncheon showcased the healing power of plants, which research shows can both help fight cancer and ward it off before it starts. As I wrote about in my Natural Foodie column on Wednesday, the information was delivered by local plant-based diet advocate Meg Wolff.
Wolff is the author of the cookbook "A Life in Balance: Delicious, Plant-Based Recipes for Optimal Health" and regularly appears on local television shows to offer cooking advice. The video above, produced by WGME-13 anchor Kim Block, was shown at the luncheon. In it, Wolff tells Block about four foods we all should eat more of to boost overall health and strengthen our immune systems. It's great advice whether you're fighting cancer or not.Tweet
