No one expects to be diagnosed with major illnesses in their 30s, especially when they work out, eat decently and take at least some care of their bodies.
But for Gabe Canales, this wasn't enough. This prostate cancer survivor has learned that what he was doing wasn't enough, and that the biggest problem for many of us in preventing terminal illness takes more than just working out and not eating terribly: we eat too much meat and process foods.
Canales, after realizing there isn't nearly the awareness for prostate cancer as there is for breast cancer, has built an organization whose main goal is to help others NOT be like him. He's made tshirts, given speeches, arranged support groups and now is hosting a tweetup, all in an effort to educate the public that our diet is a major factor in the prevention (or cause) of major illness.Comments powered by Disqus
