Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

British nutritionist Olivier shares personal stories of breast cancer recovery, including her own, and suggests that diet should be considered in connection with cancer much as it is with heart disease. She makes recommendations that are also touted in other nutrition and cancer books and straightforward nutrition books. That is, sufferers should eat more whole grains, more soy, more vegetables, certain phytoestrogens, and less saturated fat and sugar. Previously published in the United Kingdom, the book contains some British English diction, but, for the most part, measurements and other items have been adjusted for an American audience. This is a fine book, with a nice medical glossary and a well-researched bibliography; however, there isn't anything here that readers can't find in other books (e.g., Robert Arnot's The Breast Cancer Prevention Diet or Joseph Keon's The Truth About Breast Cancer: A 7-Step Prevention Plan, both LJ 10/15/98). Purchase for consumer health collections if your library doesn't own anything else on the subject or has a great demand for it. Elizabeth Williams, Fresno City Coll. Lib., CA

Format: Paperback
I really liked The Breast Cancer Prevention and Recovery Diet. It walked me through all the basics of breast cancer, how it develops, what the risks are, what the different types are, how to recognize different symptoms, what to expect at the doctor, and what the different treatment options are. Then it explained how to minimize your risk of developing breast cancer or improving your chances of recovery through nutrition. Suzannah explained which foods to avoid and which foods to include. She suggested making gradual changes that seem really do-able. She includes easy, appealing recepies and lots of menu ideas. Everything is backed up with a lot of research, but the book is easy-to-understand and speaks on a very personal level. The Breast Cancer Prevention and Recovery Diet reminded me of Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book, which I really liked also. I think this is a great book for any woman interested in better health.
