Lectures for the 2018 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.

Lecture: Farm to Hospital: How the Way We Farm Makes Us Sick, Part 1
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. Part 1 of this lecture examines how American farming methods, as promoted and subsidized by the federal government through the Farm Bill, make us sick and obese. 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.

Lecture: Farm to Hospital: How the Way We Farm Makes Us Sick, Part 2
How can we get American farmers to plant healthy foods we can eat, stop inundating the environment with harmful chemicals, change the nation's eating habits and drastically cut healthcare costs all at the same time? We will discuss solutions to the problems identified in Part 1 and issue a call to action so attendees can help to shape the 2018 Farm Bill in a positive way.
