This is two cookbooks in one. In the first, Healthy Down Home Cooking, recipes and nutritional information developed by the National Cancer Institute are provided. Consideration is given to preparing meals for African Americans who suffer from higher rates of serious diseases like high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer. In the second cookbook, a Diversity Team from the National Cancer Institute has provided a sampling of recipes exploring different countries and cultures from around the globe. Please note, this second cookbook is meant to provide flavourful dishes and makes no health claims.
