Tonight: How Foods Fight Cancer at the Denver Botanic Gardens

There's been a lot of research lately on the foods that help fight and even prevent disease (surprise: a low-fat, mostly vegetarian diet seems to be the key). That research forms the basis of the Cancer Food Project: Food for Life, a seven-part nutrition and cooking class at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1007 York Street.

The first lecture in the series -- "Introduction to How Foods Fight Cancer" -- runs from 6 to 8 p.m. today. Admission is $28 for members, $33 for non-members, and that includes food. The full series, which continues on Wednesdays through October 27, costs $175 for members and $210 for non-members. Get more information at 720-865-3500 or
