Franciscan Health will host a virtual seminar next weekend on how diet can prevent cancer.

"Diet is thought to be responsible for about 30 to 40 percent of all cancers," Franciscan  Health said in a news release. "A Franciscan Health Cancer Center dietitian will describe the role nutrition plays in cancer prevention at a free online seminar."

The virtual seminar will take place from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Sept. 19.

"No food or diet can prevent cancer, but some foods can reduce your cancer risk and improve your overall health by boosting your immune system," Franciscan said in a press release. "At the virtual seminar, Abby Emerick, a registered dietitian, will explain the benefits and examples of a healthy diet to help lower your cancer risk. She will also share two recipes via a virtual cooking demonstration that you can try at home."

People must registered by Sept. 18 to participate.
