A.Yes. It has been accredited by CPD, the official certification service for Continuing Professional Development, which carries both UK and International recognition.
Through this CPD accredited certification, you can use your earned CPD hours with a number of professional bodies and organisations, including: the NHS, Cancer Research, the General Medical Council, the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the Health and Care Professionals Council, NSPCC, The British Society of Psychologists, B-eat, Bioforce, but also pharmaceuticals like Novartis or Bayer, universities like King’s College London or Imperial College London – to name a few.
You can find out more about our awarding bodies HERE.
Q.Is prevention a "guarantee"?
A.No. Preventing cancer doesn’t work in the same way as preventing an infectious pandemic with a vaccine. A smarter diet is not a cast-iron guarantee against cancer or ageing. But it stacks the odds in your favour. The earlier we make these changes, the better. And it is never too late to change. Do you want to live to 100 years of age, feeling youthful, without ever hearing the words “you have cancer”? Let us teach you the science so you can get closer to this!
