From the Back Cover

Put nature's bounty to work in the fight to avert cancer

Research shows that up to 80 percent of all cancers can be prevented through diet and lifestyle changes. You can reduce your risk with a nutritional program based on variety, balance, and moderation. This collaboration between leading cancer prevention experts and top gourmet chefs shows that healthy eating can both fight cancer and please the palate.

One of the nation's leading cancer research facilities, the Strang Cancer Prevention Center has placed diet and lifestyle changes at the foreground of a prevention strategy. Much more than a simple cookbook, this unique resource presents cutting-edge nutritional and scientific data on cancer, along with tantalizing, healthy recipes. In The Strang Cancer Prevention Center Cookbook, you'll learn about:

  • Using phytochemicals--the new functional foods--to promote good health
  • How to determine the quality of your current diet--and improve it
  • Making a delicious eating plan part of your cancer-preventing lifestyle
  • Lifestyle modifications designed to minimize cancer risk

Chefs from such world-renowned restaurants as the Four Seasons, Galileo, and Union Square Café serve up more than 100 delicious recipes, including:

  • Portobello Mushroom-Stuffed Chiles Rellenos
  • Asparagus Salad with Black Truffles
  • Herb- and Spice-Crusted Mahimahi with Watermelon Salsa
  • Peach and Blueberry Crisp
  • Warm Mango and Pear Soup with Fruit Sorbets

The best cure is always prevention. Discover how a healthy diet and lifestyle can keep you fit and cancer-free.

Format: Paperback
So much of cancer today is the result of environmental contaminants and high-risk lifestyles -- including diets. The Strang Cancer Prevention Center Cookbook: A Complete Nutrition And Lifestyle Plan To Dramatically Lower Your Cancer Risk is the collaborative effort of Laura Pensiero (dietitian, nutrition educator, restaurant owner, and graduate of the French Culinary Institute in New York); Michael Osborne (President of the Strang Cancer Prevention Center and faculty professor at Cornell University Medical College); and Susan Oliveria (faculty member at Strang, Cornell University Medical College, and Memorial Sloan Kettering). A complete and very highly recommended single volume course of information and instruction, readers will learn how the phytochemicals in certain foods; how to make delicious eating plans an integral part of a cancer-prevention regimen; as well as lifestyle modifications designed to minimize the risk of cancer. Enhanced with more than one hundred recipes drawn from world-renowned restaurants, The Strang Cancer Prevention Center Cookbook reveals how a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle can keep us physically fit and cancer-free.

Wonderful recipes with a huge variety of foods (fish, meats, desserts, vegetarian, etc.) and also a large section with great advice on lowering your cancer risk (antioxidants, vitamins, etc.). Highly recommended for all cooks!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Lucy Sim Conway on August 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
I was disappointed with the book because the recipes were not fully illustrated with color photos. The cover of my book did not even look like the one shown here. The information about cancer was useful but I bought it more for the recipes and was very disappointed that it was not illustrated like a real cookbook. Misleading cover on the internet.
