This is an online course that will enable the learner to explain the theories of ageing the mechanisms underlying the aging process and the clinical implication of age-related diseases. Understand the molecular and biochemical basis diagnosis and treatment of different cancers the commonality and variability between cancer types. Recognise and distinguish the contribution of environmental and genetic factors to cancer causation and the process of ageing. Analyse the role of diet and lifestyle on the progression of ageing and in cancer prevention development and treatment. Identify the effects of popular regimes on cancer risk and lifespan extension e.g. fasting caloric restriction low-protein ketogenic vegan or gluten-free diets. Personalise nutritional and lifestyle plans based on current state of health and prevention goals assess plan and monitor goals and evaluate information derived from online courses news media and current literature on the scientific validity of cancer- and ageing-related content.

What I would highlight: The course was very enjoyable and well organised. The weight gain assessment was an eye opener. Jamie Oliver's Video echoed on how I feel about these issues. Excited to cover the advanced topics.

What I would highlight: This course provided a lot of things to me. First of all, they offer vast knowledge about nutrition which helped me to lead a healthy life and also gave enough confidence to guide anyone else about nutrition. The course materials were amazing and I enjoyed it with my new friends. I loved the way they sent the emails.

Course programme

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
