19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By A Researcher on August 14, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book demonstrates the scientifically supported research into how cancer can be overcome with natural compounds called Savlestrols. There are four main people behind the continuing research into Salvestrols. They are Professor Potter of De Montfort University (three time winner of the Royal Society of Chemistry Award and creator of two cancer drugs Abiraterone and Stilserene), Emeritus Professor Dan Burke of De Montfort University (former Professor of Aberdeen University), Brian Schaefer (Oxford Graduate and author of this excellent book), and Anthony Daniels (mechanical engineer).

While at Aberdeen University Professor Burke discovered that all types of cancer cells have the CYP1B1 enzyme. Professor Potter created the cancer drugs Abiraterone Acetate and Stilserene and while both were very successful and had few side effects they are still going through clinical trials many years after they were created. People hearing about these drugs, but who were not able to use them because they are still in clinical trials pleaded for help from professor Potter. As a result Professor Potter found a natural compound that worked better than the synthetic Stilserene. He named these natural compounds Salvestrols.

Salvestrols transform CYP1B1 enzymes into anti-cancer agents that cause the cancer cells to die without harming regular healthy cells. With these results Prof. Potter set about finding fruits and vegetables that are high in Salvestrols. Professor Potter and Prof. Burke also worked with Anthony Daniels 1. to create the `Salvestrol Platinum' pills which they released as a food supplement pill.

Format: Paperback
This is different from many cancer books. It doesn't offer lots of heart-rendering stories or amazing cures. It's a clear account of the discovery of how your diet can protect you against cancer based on the work of two English cancer researchers -Professor Gerry Potter and Professor Dan Burke. The science is there but it's also easy to read and understand. It explains why fruit and vegetables are so important and how modern farming practices lead to a lower consumption of salvestrols in our diet. The book outlines what we need to do from taking salvestrols supplements, salvestrol rich foods, and importance of vitamins and minerals.

Format: Paperback
The book is great but I am posting this here, in case you go looking for a Salvestrol supplement to use in addition to food. The manufacturer of Salvestrol supplements, under the name Salvestrol Platinum, sells in countries all over the world but does not sell the same product in each country. Recently, people have come to me asking about a product from their UK division called "Salvestrol Platinum 2000" and whether it is safe to use on their pets. The answer is NO. 2000 contains grape which is not safe for cats and dogs. If you are using Salvestrol 2000 for humans, wonderful. It is a fantastic product. However, if you want a Salvestrol supplement for your pets, you must use the American/Canadian version called Salvestrol Platinum 1000. The 1000 version uses citrus, billberry, strawberry and raspberry. Some cats don't like citrus but it does not appear to be dangerous. Grapes, however, are toxic to dogs and cats as they are to a small subset of the human population as they are powerful inducers of Heme synthesis. But, whatever the reason for the danger they pose to pets, please, do not use the 2000 version of Salvestrol Platinum with your pets. The 1000 version is safe for animals. The 2000 version is only safe for humans. Good luck.

Format: Paperback
I share in the 5 star rating with the previous reviews and the comments they made. I am not in the medical profession, so reading about cancer is not a favorite reading subject for me. It just reminds me of the ticking time bomb inside us all. Since no one has "cured" cancer yet with the billions of dollars thrown at research for decades, I feel it is just not worth reading about such as the depressing recovery percentages and the invasive and harmful manner in which treatment is administered.

Everyone has been touched by a loved one or friend that had or has cancer. Reading this book will be rewarding for you as it clearly spells out a better alternative that is safe and actually is a healthier means of addressing cancer cells so we can ultimately never have to worry about it again, or we may even recover when the cancer is diagnosed.

Brian Schaefer writes brilliantly. He lifts you with a bit of light humor frequently and at the right moments. I smiled many times reading this book. One can read it in just a few hours or so. Don't forget to use the glossary if you are not in the medical field for the occasional unfamiliar word/medical terms and such!

After reading the book, I hope you will feel like I did... a heartwarming smile, appreciation, and the sense of cheering for the Team! I send out a virtual hug to the researchers and people that made this possible for humanity to live longer and healthier and fear less about cancer. My gratitude to Professors Burke and Potter, Anthony Daniels and Brian Schaefer. They are a value to us all.

I stumbled upon salvestrols doing cancer research as my sister has stage 4 lung cancer. I was looking for an alternative since she can no longer take the radiation and chemo.
