In episode 141, Jill and Chris talk with Jeanette Evans, a long-time friend of Jill's who has developed a wonderful anti-cancer lifestyle.

Jill first met Jeanette many years ago when they were both working as technical writers and belonged to a professional organization together. Jeanette is a writer and editor and is involved in all kinds of communications. They have kept in touch over the years and started to meet for lunch recently. We believe that Jeanette’s story and way of life might be of interest to everyone.

Jeanette Evans has had three cancer surgeries with the first being in 2003 and a diagnosis of presumed triple negative breast cancer.

She has tried to educate herself on staying healthy with an anti-cancer lifestyle and diet which she finds to be delicious too.

We discuss:

  • Her anti-cancer lifestyle
  • Which authors that she follows and why
  • What she eats on a regular basis
  • What food she avoids
  • How she gets variety into her diet
  • Her views on supplements
  • How this anti-cancer lifestyle has improved her health
  • Ways this type of eating has protected her from other problems like diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
  • Views on organic vs non-organic
  • How she exercises throughout the week
  • Ways she manages stress in her life
