Does being vegan or vegetarian improve cancer survivorship? What about soy foods: should I avoid them if I have cancer? 

Join our Iris Care Team oncology expert dietitian and licensed nutritionist, Stephanie Meyers, for an interactive and in-depth look at the research on soy foods and vegan/vegetarian eating patterns in relation to cancer. 

During our on-demand event, we will discuss a wide range of soy products including tofu, soymilk, edamame, veggie burgers, and soy protein powder, as well as gain a clear understanding of how these foods relate to cancer risk.
