Lectures and Private Consultations for the 2019 Cruise

Lecture: The Prevention and Treatment of Breast Cancer with Food
When Dr. Weiss graduated from medical school in 1988, breast cancer was diagnosed in one out of every eleven women in America. Today, 1 of 8 American women are diagnosed with the disease. How did breast cancer incidence rise so quickly? Dr. Weiss explores the reasons why and explains how breast cancer screening sometimes does more harm than good. He will explain the evidence and mechanisms of how whole unrefined plant foods are effective in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. He will also discuss which foods provoke breast cancer and why.

Keynote Lecture: Farm to Hospital: How the Way We Farm Makes Us Sick
The primary cause of America's healthcare crisis is not a lack of health insurance, nor is it skyrocketing drug costs or a dearth of primary care doctors. It is federal agriculture policy. In this eye-opening presentation, you will learn how billions of taxpayer dollars given to farmers to grow certain crops lead to trillions of dollars in unnecessary medical costs every year. Dr. Weiss will offer solutions as to how we can get American farmers to plant healthy foods, stop inundating the environment with chemicals, change the nation's eating habits and thus, drastically reduce healthcare costs.

In recent decades, alcohol – specifically red wine - has been promoted as being very good for our health. What does the scientific evidence say? Dr. Weiss will explore these issues in detail.
