Pink October at APCS

Today we paid $1 to wear pink t-shirts and another $1 to wear blue jeans to raise money for the Susan Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

Dayton picks some pink zinnias from the garden for the front office.

According to "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" by Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., some foods that decrease your risk of getting breast cancer are the following:
Beans, Broccoli, Red Cabbage, Carrots, Cranberries, Eggs, Flaxseed, Grapefruit, Kale, Lemons, Lentils, Olive Oil, Pineapple, Prunes, Spinach, Strawberries, & Tomatoes. The spice Cumin & the herb Rosemary (which we have an abundance in the garden) also seem to play a role in blocking cancers.
