240 g (1 cup) brown sugar
1 tsp ground ginger
225 g (1 3/4 cups) all-­purpose unbleached flour

I would have liked to give this book 5 stars, but it has serious flaws for a cook book. I have read Anti-Cancer, the book on which these recipes are based. A whole half of this book is dedicated to reiterating what foods can fight cancer. The second half is the "cookbook". The major problem with the ease of use of the cookbook is that the index is useless! Browsing through the recipes, I noticed at least 4 recipes that feature lentils. When I was ready to make some Lentil and Carrot Soup, I open the book's index to find the recipe. In the index, Lentil is not listed. Nor is Carrot. Nor Soup! Now I've got to flip through the beautiful photos and other recipes hoping to come across the one I want. That's a disappointment. The editor of this book needs a different job.

I am amazed that this book was even written by the same authors as the excellent "Foods to Fight Cancer". The first half of the book does have some very useful information but starting with the very first recipe things go downhill quickly. The first four ingredients (of a six ingredient recipe) are sugar, oil, eggs and white flour. These are foods that actually promote cancer - as anyone who has read the outstanding book "Anti-Cancer" will easily see. The wheat bran and blueberries that finish out these muffins cannot possibly compensate for the harm of the first four ingredients. What follows are more recipes full of sugar, oil, flour and animal products (such as cheese and beef) all of which are known to accelerate cancer growth. I love their other book but this one is likely to do more harm than good. For a much better book on cancer nutrition read "The Cancer Survivors Guide" by Neal Barnard and Jennifer K. Reilly or "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell PhD.

This is a wonderful book full of useful and authoritative information as well as excellent recipes that are easy and not too time consuming.

After I heard an interview with the authors on CBC Radio, I just had to have this book. I went out and bought it that same day. Now I am giving it for
Christmas. The format of this book, with its shiny pages and great pictures makes it a book that can be a coffee table presentable book.

All in all a beautiful presentation with solid content.

I think this is a beautifully presented cook book. I am aware of the foods to beware of and I am a little puzzled by the use of sugar, but we always take our common sense with us when we have cancer-- but the recipes are inspiring and so many taste good.

I am a big fan of Dr. Beilveau ... but I was very surprised to see recipes that include sugar. It appears that the recipes were not reviewed in detail. I plan to try many of the recipes included -- but the sugar thing really surprised.

This is a beautiful book with a lot of important information and excellent recipes. I was a little disappointed with the index. If you're looking for a recipe for a specific ingredient, it gives a list of page numbers, but leaves out the recipe that will be found on those pages. So you have to look up each one - too tedious. If you are interested in this topic, I highly recommend Anticancer: A New Way of Life by David Servan-Schrieber. No recipes in that one, but an excellent user-friendly readable review of the science behind diet & lifestyle changes which will help prevent cancer or cancer relapse.

I was looking for a book written by a guest on Oprah, but when I found the book, it was nothing like the author had described on the show. I kept looking because I wanted to extend and improve my terminal hubby's life.

This book extended his life by 5 months. He enjoyed all the recipes I made from this book (even though he said he wouldn't eat some of the recipes when he read the ingredients, he gobbled it down when it was made). You can select recipes by meal, and some are so easy a child could make it, and others really require a spice mill and a mandoline. Some take a lot of prep with short cooking times, and others are dead easy. All can be made in an hour if memory serves me, and I have made some of the meals for guests, and they think I am a cordon bleu chef after tatsting it.

The authors researched all types of food and found which food and spices fight cancer, made a list and presented it to the top chefs in Quebec, and told them to make recipes using the ingredients on the list.

And, you can't fault them because they tell you to eat 70% or higher chocolate every day, and that will make any day a bit brighter.

This book is also very good if you don't use spices a lot. The recipes will show you what goes with what.

I have given this book as gifts to friends, and wouldn't part with my copy.
