Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Kushi, author, lecturer and popular voice of the international macrobiotic community, has joined once again with co-writer Jack to update and revise this comprehensive, cancer-prevention guidebook, first published 25 years ago. The new volume contains current statistics and research while presenting the core traditions of the macrobiotic way of life. Chapters on emotions and cancer and 100 new dishes and drinks are also incorporated, including a number of lighter recipes necessitated by a yangizing trend (heavier, busier and more stressful) in society. Macrobiotics, as Kushi explains, is based upon the concept of balancing yin and yang energy in all things. The authors note that when the first edition was published, a cold war existed between holistic and mainstream therapies; today, they assert, mainstream medicine has recognized the beneficial effects of the macrobiotic diet as it relates to cancer, while admitting its own failings in keeping the disease in check. (Kushi's criticism of modern medicine and practices, notably scans and radiation, may still raise controversy.) Kushi writes that cancer prevention and treatment should begin in the kitchen, encompassing diet (with an emphasis on whole grains and vegetables) as well as environment, outlook and lifestyle. This remarkable resource also includes 17 up-to-date individual chapters on specific cancers, such as thyroid cancer, spiraling since the last edition. (Aug.)

I have 20 yrs natural healing from breast cancer, and along with the Canadian herbal teas to cleanse my blood of toxins, I used the Macrobiotic Way to good health. I completely changed my diet, tastes for certain food, and lifestyle I had Michio's chapter a day to update my personal Macrobiotic path. I felt the best ever in my life when I was strictly macrobiotic. Twenty years ago, it was difficult to do. ...Easier now, as more people are convinced that "Food IS our medicine!" First said by Socrates, and a profound backbone to Macrobiotic teachings. Micho DID go to Washington to be honored by Congress for the changes he and his family have brought to the USA. And the Smithsonian has opened a wing dedicated to this.first book, and it became like a bible, telling me what to do for every kind of cancer imaginable. I sought the help of a macrobiotic counselr, Lino Stanchich, and at one point went to MA to be seen by Michio Kushi. After a long time, I dared to lend out my first book by Michio, the predessor to this one. Unfortunately, I have forgotten to who I loaned it, and it has never come home to me. Perhaps it is "fortunately" it has not, because that prompted me to order Michio's new book. His fascinating, explicit recounting of all the progress cancer healing has undergone is fascinating. He still gives advice for different cancers. This is a great book, although I'd like to see my earlier one for the sake of my notes in it. I try to read a a chapter a day to renew my personal Macrobiotic path. Mr. Kushi was honored by USA Congress for the clarity he has brought to Americans. The Smithsonian opened a wing on this topic.

Personally, I think if you are interested in living a long and healthy life you will want to, at least, consider what Kushi has to say. An easy test to see if macrobiotics is right for you, spend a week at the Kushi Institute in Beckett, MA than judge. Hey, what's one week and a few dollars to see if you can live a longer healthier life? It will be the best investment you ever make! You're worth it so go for it! :)

I don't have cancer nor am I at risk but this book opened my eyes to all kinds of good info. I have been on a health kick lately and have been really interested in preserving the heart and brain with proper diet and exercise but somehow overlooked cancer and thought for years I was on the road to good health. Well, after reading this cancer prevention book it turns out that I have been eating very poorly; but not anymore. As I don't find it necessary at this time (and hopefully never) to follow a strict macrobiotic diet, there is an abundance of good ideas for healthy eating and hopefully by reading this, I have actually prevented the occurrence of cancers in my body (knock on wood). By following these dietary and heath guidelines, you also have the ability to "kill two birds with one stone": What is good for cancer prevention is also great for the heart and brain.

I did not use this book. I got it for my son-in-law (who had cancer) and daughter. She told me she found it helpful. He, by the way, saw a 75 percent reduction in cancer after 4 chemo treatments (He had Hodgkin's lymphoma). He was told this was way above average in healing and time. We all have attributed his success to his diet, which he strictly watched, and also used this book in implementing.
