More About the Author

I am on the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, where I teach about nutrition and do nutrition-focused research. My medical background includes doing a National Cancer Institute fellowship where I worked in cancer research and also pursued a master's degree in cancer epidemiology. I followed this training with a fellowship in high risk cancer genetics, so I've trained in medicine at the patient level as well as among large groups of people with various different personal risk factors, including those based on genetic variations.

I was born in Chicago, raised in the south hills of Pittsburgh, and left home at age 14 to attend Phillips Exeter Academy. Before attending medical school at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York city, I was an English major at Princeton University. I was also a dancer as well as an athlete, which meant that I had to fuel my body with the healthiest food that I could. I learned to cook at a young age and have been developing recipes for health and longevity for decades. My cookbooks will tell you all about the research behind food, nutrients, and cancer risk. You'll learn how you can diminish your own risk of getting cancer through smarter cooking methods and keeping your weight in a healthy range.

Dr. Greer offers tastey tidbits to tempt your palate. And better still, she helps you fight off the Big C. She's no Emeril ("Bam!"...thank heavens) but she does offer many helpful suggestions that can really be beneficial to your lifespan.
This is not the usual lots-of-butter-and cream richness found in some quarters, nor is it the ascetic "bean-sprouts-and-hope" offered by others. Instead, it is sensible, research-based suggestions and recipes that can help save your life. While helping make your life at the table worth living.
My only reservation is that I keep recalling the old saying, "Never trust a skinny chef," but since the intent is to keep you healthy, rather than provide cutting edge haute cuisine, I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.
I'd dine happily with Dr. Julia Greer any day.

It has long been known and clinically demonstrated that food has a direct link to health, and that some foods are not only nutritious for the human body, they are also medical and remedial. In "The Anti-Cancer Cookbook: How To Cut Your Risk With the Most Powerful, Cancer-Fighting Foods", Dr. Julia B. Greer has compiled more than 200 specific recipes featuring ingredients that have a particular relevance for fighting various forms of cancer. The step-by-step instructions for each individual recipe are in accordance with cooking methods that protect the anti-cancer properties of the ingredients. Of special note is the cogent, practical, 'real-world' advice for making healthy menu choices when dining out. From Chilled Apple Oatmeal; Red Pepper Hummus; Maple-Pecan Broccoli; and Newport Beach Turkey Pasta Salad; to Portobello Tofu Tacos; Mahi Mahi with Citrus Sauces and Black Beans; Spice-Rubbed Filet Mignon with Grilled Tomatoes; and Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Zucchini Brownies, "The Anti-Cancer Cookbook" is a veritable cornucopia of dishes suitable for every dining occasion and highly recommended for anyone having to prepare meals with cancer prevention and treatment in mind.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this as a way to better support my husband battle a recurrence of cancer. But it's turning into a Food Bible where I can find Yummy dishes that are just GOOD WHOLE FOOD without being kooky, hippy and with ingredients that you can only find at the corner organic grocery in Soho...I live in North Carolina. Easy recipies and tons of them! Many of them I use for my own HIGH cholesterol (I;m one of those people who are not overweight and healthy but have family genetic high cholesterol). So, I could write a 20,000 word essay on this book, but here's the bottom line: BUY IT, you'll use it and love it!!

I just wanted to point out that this book was originally published in 2008, not in the 1970s as one reviewer here had suggested. If there are other books out there with similar titles from the 1970s, they are not related to this book in any way.

Format: Paperback
This is a clever book that educates you on foods that are helpful for cancer prevention while giving you recipes that are delicious at the same time. I think this author's use of spices is unusual and I have been able to take her combinations of spices and apply them to new recipes of my own. This book would make a wonderful gift for anyone.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very outdated even though published in 2008. Makes me think the author really didn't know that much to begin with. Now, there is alot of useful basic information about various cancers and the smartest foods to be consumming. However, when it comes to the recipes, she ignores the research. But this may be for you, if: you want to saute everything in oil, you want to consume red meat and pork, you want to consume dairy and eggs, you like lots of sugar, you want to use white flour and other refined carbohydrates, you want to grill, you want to oven bake potato fries and other starchy vegetables, you want to use Splenda. And, no mention of turmeric.
Enough said! There are many much more savvy cookbooks out there, and most don't even tout being "anti-cancer."
As a cookbook for general healthy eating, it is just okay. I tried one recipe -the Lentil Rice Casserole. It was average for this type of casserole, but topped with a layer of cheddar cheese. Go figure.
For anyone taking a pro-active stance in either surviving or warding off cancer, I definitely do not recommend this book.

I am not one to follow recipes, however, I am swimming in uncharted waters these days and so, with this cookbook, for the first time in my life, I am following the recipes item for item, measurement for measurement AND everything I've made tastes awesome AND my kids eat it AND it is healthy. This book makes the dietary approach to fighting cancer much more enjoyable than I ever imagined it would be.

Dr. Julia Greer's Anti-Cancer Cookbook is filled with new, great recipes. My husband loved the salads, new dressings (at last) and of course, the desserts! With these new healthy recipes I plan to keep him longer! Nancy F.B.
