When you complete this certification, you’ll be uniquely trained in the

Application of Nutrition Science and Lifestyle Interventions

to help reduce cancer risk and promote lifespan extension.

We developed this advanced certification because of questions we get all the time at The Health Sciences Academy:

  • “Does this thing/ingredient/diet CAUSE cancer?”
  • “My relative got cancer but has NO idea what to do. What should she eat?”
  • “Will I get cancer if it’s in my GENES? Do I need treatment now?”
  • “I want to help, but HOW do I avoid it myself if it runs in the family?”
(Yes, we get questions like these even from medical doctors and university-trained dietitians).
Questions like that inspired us to bring practical science closer to those who have been touched directly or indirectly by cancer.
This course is our combined know-how in cancer biology, epigenetics, nutrition biochemistry, and nutrigenomics.
If you want to stay resilient and enjoy a long, happy life, we believe that you need to understand this disease and the ageing process, from a molecular perspective.
But how do you do it?
Fortunately, that’s exactly what you’re about to learn…

FACT: Clients Need Practitioners Who Have a Profound, Science-based Insight on Cancer Biology and Longevity

(…Who Actually Know What They’re Saying)
Data: Cancer Research UK, Sasieni et al., 2015 (*)
Since you’re here, you probably already know that cancer is the number 2 cause of death worldwide.
Sadly, 1 in 3 of us will be diagnosed with cancer during our lifetime, or 1 in 2 if born after 1960 (*).
It could be anyone. Your friend. A loved one. YOU.
The odds are too high and need to be lowered.
Practitioners today must gain a profound, science-based insight that they can use to help clients PROFICIENTLY, particularly if they want to stand out and be leaders in this field.
This scientific insight includes understanding the effects of different diets and foods on cancer risk and ageing.

That's where YOU can make a difference.

When you get certified in Nutrition for Cancer Prevention and Longevity, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of molecular biology, genetics, and the science behind cancer development…
…and you’ll be able to confidently answer questions like:
  • Why don’t we have a cure… or do we?
  • What do cancer and the ageing process have in common?
  • Can I protect myself from the thousands of potential cancer cells produced in my body every day?
  • How can I be sure which foods and substances lead to cancer, and which ones are just ‘hearsay’?
  • What’s the evidence on fasting, caloric restriction, low-protein eating, low-fat eating, high-fat ketogenic eating, veganism, pescatarianism, gluten-free eating, alkaline diets, and other special diets?
  • What’s the truth behind each diet (or what isn’t)?
  • Which molecular effects do they have on cancer risk and anti-ageing (IF ANY?)?

You just have to learn which strategies work in specific situations and put them forward the ‘right’ way.

As you uncover important scientific know-how that most people lack, you turn your fear into possibility… and get a better sense of control from:
  • Understanding WHAT makes a normal cell become a cancer cell
  • Seeing HOW a cancer cell looks like, what it does, how it (mis)behaves, and what may stop it
  • Knowing the TRUTH about “this or that causes cancer” hearsay
  • Discovering WHAT stops thousands of potential cancer cells in your body every day
  • Learning HOW to make the right food decisions for different cancer types and inherited risks
  • Solving the puzzle of contradictory advice, or WHY foods that reduce your risk for one cancer type actually increase your risk for another
  • Realising WHY we are getting older, even from the moment we’re born - and what you can do about it

In short, graduates of our Nutrition for Cancer Prevention and Longevity become…

  • More scientific in viewing cancer and ageing
  • More educated than afraid of this fatal disease
  • More confident when you talk about what can be a scary subject
  • And more in control in helping minimise your risk against it
We know the tremendous impact this could make in your life and in the lives of your clients and your loved ones. If you’re interested in becoming certified, then we have a question for you…

Are You Ready To Take The Lead and Learn this Science?

(or… Why You Might Want to Get Certified)
There’s so much misconception out there about how to truly reduce cancer risk or eat for lifespan extension.
Everyone seems to be talking and writing about cancer prevention tips. “Eat this”; “Don’t eat that”; “Alert: this will give you cancer!”.
However, most celebrity “experts” and bloggers don’t have a clue about what cancer is.
Let alone what truly causes it, or why.
That’s the problem!
Internet searches on anti-cancer and anti-ageing just aren’t enough (nor safe).
There are just too many fallacies out there, and this can cost you your health… especially if you make the mistake of following wrong advice.
At The Health Sciences Academy, we take this seriously. You see, we don’t just teach health and nutrition science.
We actually ARE SCIENTISTS who investigate, dissect and DO SCIENCE.
We aren’t bloggers. We aren’t internet personalities.
We’re professional scientists running scientific experiments, with decades of combined experience both in the lab and on the field, including world-leading research hubs like the Harvard Cancer Center.
We know how hard it is to find truly skilled practitioners who know what they’re talking about.
And that’s why we created the Nutrition for Cancer Prevention and Longevity certification.
So you don’t have to keep “guessing” the whats, hows, and whys.
As scientists in this domain, we have done the research.
And we want to share this intelligence with YOU…
