"I believe we have a cure for cancer... prevention is the cure. And even when it starts, you can reverse it."
On this week's episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast, I sit down with the inspiring Lauren Previte. Lauren is a local dancer, dance teacher, and pure barre instructor here on the South Shore. A couple of years ago, Lauren started having some health issues from her kidneys failing to bladder infections and a number of other seemingly unexplainable issues. Then a regular trip to her OBGYN turned into a life changing scare with a rare cancer. After emergency surgery, doctors told Lauren there was up to an 80% chance that the tumor would come right back. But she was determined to make sure that didn't happen. After countless hours of research and watching YouTube videos Lauren adopted a plant based diet over night. It has now been 1.5 years and there is no sign of the cancer returning. Seeing how amazing Lauren looks, and how vibrant and full of life she is, and hearing about what she eats and does every day... I think it's safe to say that cancer has absolutely no shot at making a comeback. This is a conversation about taking your health into your own hands, it's about truly using food and lifestyle as medicine, and is probably the most inspiring episode to date. Lauren is a total rockstar.
