Editorial Reviews

Review

"Professor Plant courageously tells a compelling and very personal story on breast cancer that is a must-read, not only for women interested in this disease but also for the scientific and medical communities, who should sit up and take notice. It is time that the long-alleged nutritional worthiness of dairy be brought up for discussion."
--T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, project director of the China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project, joint chairman of the Diet and Cancer Project of the American Institute for Cancer Research, and co-chairman of the World Cancer Research Fund.

"This important, provocative book by an impressive author cannot be ignored. Through this breathtaking personal odyssey, Jane Plant forces us all to think differently about the causes of breast cancer. Indispensable reading."
--Devra Lee Davis, Ph.D., M.P.H., Clinton Administration appointee to the National Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, visiting professor, Carnegie Mellon University

"Dr. Jane Plant provides a much-needed challenge to the conventional paradigm in dealing with the epidemic of breast cancer. This authoritative, well-researched but easily read text finally provides a focus on the powerful science of disease prevention. Here are the tools allowing women the ability to reduce their risk."
--David Perlmutter, M.D., director of the Permutter Health Center, Naples, Florida

"[This book] should be read by every...woman wishing to avoid breast cancer and to live life to her fullest potential. The book is well documented and easy to read. Your doctor should be recommending it to you."
--John McDougall, M.D., medical director of the McDougall Program, St. Helena Hospital, Napa Valley, California

This book provides a very thorough analysis of the connection between dairy and cancer.
Sharon Minger
I had been a daily and enthusiastic consumer of dairy products but I stopped as soon as I learned about it, and read Jane Plant's book.
Felicity
This book is not dry and maintains the tone of a personal story while being clear without sacrificing rigor with the facts.

I went through conventional treatment for breast cancer--6 months of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. I was given the all clear. A year later routine scans showed metastatic disease in my lung--devastating news. My oncologist was hopeful but not encouraging for my long-term prospects. Incredibly luckily for me, someone close to me heard about Jane Plant and her research that suggests a link between breast cancer to dairy. I had been a daily and enthusiastic consumer of dairy products but I stopped as soon as I learned about it, and read Jane Plant's book. I was persuaded by the science, and have spent the past year almost vegan and completely dairy free. I went back into chemotherapy, and found I coped much better with the side effects because of my plant-rich diet. It hasn't always been easy (I miss cheese!), but here's the payoff: my lung tumor started to shrink within a few weeks, and I have just been pronounced cancer free. I will stay off dairy food, and I want to spread the word as widely as I can. If you've got breast cancer, or if you're at risk, what have you got to lose by giving up dairy? I feel wonderful, and I'm beginning to believe I've got my life back. Thank you, Jane Plant!

The leading cause of death for women between 25 - 75 years of age is cancer. The type of cancer that kills the most women is breast cancer. About 1 out of 10 women will contract breast cancer.

That is a large number of wives, girlfriends, mothers, sisters, friends and coworkers who will be lost to people.

One of these victims was almost Dr. Jane Plant, the first female head of the British Geological Survey and one of the first women hired by the British Geological Survey as a scientist.

Floored by a diagnosis of breast cancer, Dr. Plant decided to respond with what she knew best: science. Part of what the British Geological Survey does is to analyze the relationship between diseases and geographic areas to find links between the disease and what is going on with the land.

Dr. Plant knew from her work that Asians of the far east do not get breast or prostate cancer as often as westerners do. It has been noticed that until recent times Asians tended not to consume milk.

Still having a growing breast cancer tumor threatening her life after having had a mastectomy, several other surgeries, several radiation treatments and chemotherapy Dr. Plant decided to remove all dairy products from her diet.

The tumor began measurably shrinking after a few days and the cancer disappeared from her body not to return.

This story sounds like a fairly typical anecdotal account. What makes this book atypical is that being a breast cancer survivor who is also a scientist Dr. Plant's book has ample citations from well respected sources to support her beliefs.

Dr. Plant's strongest argument is that cows and human beings share a hormone in common: Insulin Like Growth Factor 1 ( ILGF-1).

What we eat DO reflect how our body function. Everything that we eat wrong will accumulate into a life of illness and disease. This book details a change of nutrition venue that can literally change the health of your life. Today's society is consuming high levels of toxic chemicals from pesticides to drug-infested meats. I have followed the recommended change in my daily food choices and my (migraine)headaches and sinus allergies are gone! I've started my children on this healthy diet as well.
If you have any cancer or disease, this change will definitely give you a new outlook in life.

This book provides a very thorough analysis of the connection between dairy and cancer. I've purchased copies for family and friends, but when they look at it, they put their fingers in their ears and go "la-la-la-la..." Cow's milk is so ingrained in our culture, nobody wants to admit that it could be detrimental to our health. So, I now give a copy to anyone I know who already has cancer; at least they have a good reason to explore alternatives to helping themselves stay healthy and alive.
