The first two chapters include a general discussion of cancer, to include an alarming review of cancer incidence and its impact on individual lives and entire populations. The following ten chapters review potential avenues for cancer prevention, to include lifestyle choices, diet, dietary supplements, and environmental factors. The last four chapters provide a detailed discussion of the three cancers responsible for the majority of cancer deaths in the United States; lung cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer. As a thoracic (chest) surgeon, I particularly appreciated the chapter on lung cancer. Every chapter is clearly and concisely written, with an abundance of useful knowledge for physicians, and particularly for the patients they strive to serve.
I have known Dr. Wascher for the past 20 years, and have always recognized his keen interest in the care of patients with cancer, and his commitment to scientific excellence. I read his book due to our long acquaintance, but am offering this review and my 5-star rating entirely because it is so well deserved. I have already recommended Dr. Wascher's book to friends and family, and will continue to do so. I cannot imagine anyone who reads this book not gleaning useful tips on how they may pursue a healthier lifestyle, and thereby greatly diminish the risk of developing this dreaded disease. Kudos, Dr. Wascher; excellent work!
His writing is well documented with footnotes.
I highly recommend this book even if you think you are up on all of the new research. He gives a realistic assessment that of what the studies actually show. He lays out some very positive info. Some of it is very exciting. A lot of good stuff.
This book looks at fundamental factors that have been scientifically related to cancer, such as diet, stress, and the environment. It also considers things like exercise, nutritional supplementation and medication in relation to their role in cancer prevention. In addition, the book provides clinical data for lung, breast and prostate cancer, which have the highest incidence in the US.
If reducing your risk of cancer by 60% sounds worthwhile, then this book can help! As both a registered nurse and a doctor of chiropractic I would highly recommend it to both patients and peers.
I entered to win a copy because it seemed like so many people in my life had recently been diagnosed with cancer, but at the same time I wasn't sure I was going to like it. I mean, it says lower your cancer risk by 60% on the front cover, and I thought oh this is probably some guy telling me the latest fad to prevent cancer, it's not going to be worth it. So I put off reading it for a bit, but I can't stand having such a large pile of to-be-read books, and having so many of them that were First-Reads that i needed to read and review, so I picked it up and started reading.
The book was not what I thought it would be. it was not some kook telling me the latest fad to prevent cancer, it was actually someone who did what we all want. He found all the studies, both highly scientific, moderately scientific and even non-scientific, and he took all that information and complied it into useable information. He summarized the research, and told you that this is the gist of what the highly scientific research is showing and this is what the other research is showing, and based on all that, this is what I think would benefit you in your life to reduce your risks.
For each thing that he notes as possibly helping to reduce your risk of cancer, he provide research to back up his claim, and he even tells you that this item has been talked about, but there is no research to show it is effective, and he even tells you if the research has shown something to be non-effective or even harmful.I was pleasantly surprised, and glad that I read the book. It was not a fad book, but a compilation of the research out there, including footnotes with the exact study information and where to find the study so that you can check it out yourself.Read more ›
