Why Dr. Marinella Started PhytoDense Foods


As an Oncologist, I am confronted with treating a variety of cancers on a daily basis—some of which may be preventable through lifestyle and diet. Although no one knows for certain what role, if any, diet plays in the prevention of cancer, the weight of evidence shows that the incidence of some cancers may be decreased through consumption of a diet rich in plant products.
