Daily Tips: Your Food and DrinkPosted by Sheryl Crow
We are very lucky to have a wonderful chef named Pia cooking for us on tour. She met with my nutritionist, Rachel Bellar, to find out some great ways to fortify the body, and at the same time, incorporate cancer preventative measures. My oncologist set me up with Rachel shortly after I was diagnosed. Rachel is at the forefront of nutritional studies in the area of disease prevention and overall wellness. Here are some good tips you guys can incorporate into your daily living:
--Don't drink water from a bottle that has been sitting in your car. Heated plastic will bleed toxic substances that can be carcinogenic.

--Don't heat or freeze in plastic for the same reason. Heat in glass containers.

--Do not cook in olive oil at high heat. This, too, is carcinogenic. It is fine to saute in olive oil but if you are browning or frying, use canola oil.

--Cinnamon and tumeric are spices that are cancer preventatives, particularly for prostate and colon cancer
