“Listen to your body. Our bodies tell us, and I think we learn to un-program them, so that we can eat fast food and be sedentary, and we don’t feel it, but the more we take these tiny steps, the more we see how we feel good, and we start to listen to our bodies. Then, if we’re sedentary or we eat fast food, we don’t feel as good. Our bodies tell us.” - Lynne Eldridge
On Living Smart she will discuss tips to help prevent cancer.
A graduate of the University of Missouri Medical School, Dr. Lynne Eldridge started her career as a primary care physician and also a researcher in Hawaii investigating health risks related to human exposure to pesticides. A proponent of cancer prevention after seeing the “stigma of lung cancer” during her 15 years of private practice, Eldridge found that at least 20 percent of women who have lung cancer have never touched a cigarette. This statistic is one of the many reasons why Eldridge decided to leave her private practice and pursue a career in research, writing, and public-speaking about her passions—cancer prevention, nutrition and advocacy for cancer patients. As a medical journalist for the New York Times and author of the book Avoiding Cancer One Day at a Time: Practical Advice for Preventing Cancer, Eldridge has committed her life to spreading the word about prevention.
Dr. Eldridge is also an international public speaker and dedicates her time to university lectures in order to provide the education needed for future doctors to understand lifestyle practices and ways that they can help reduce the recurrence of cancer in their patients. Eldridge is a 4-time national award-winning author and writes about lung cancer for About.com. Through her work, Eldridge offers insight into self-awareness and awareness of cancer around us. She currently lives in Minneapolis and is working on another book entitled Keeping Breast Cancer at Bay.
