I recently purchased "The Cancer Survivor's Guide" for a course I was taking at Whole Foods Market in Sacramento, CA. I do not have cancer. I do not plan to get cancer. But then again, nobody does. My beloved, healthy, sister Debora died in 2007 from virulent cancer. I don't wish it on anyone.
While I was a patient of John McDougall in Santa Rosa undergoing his ten day program,my sister Debora was eating the "Atkins Diet." Five years later, I am alive and thriving and Debora is buried in a cemetery nearby.
Don't let this happen to you or your loved one.

I now have a weekly share of a vegetable crop in a C.S.A. farm nearby. I loved the Cancer Project Class. The recipes in this book are great. We got a chance to make several of them during the four week class. The Mashed Grains and Cauliflower on (p168) tasted great with mushroom gravy on top. I enjoyed the Black Bean Chili on (p121). I went into ecstasy over the Raspberry Salad Dressing on (p151) used on our green salad. The Sweet and Sour Stirfry on (p200) was an excellent dish and I learned to cook my root vegetables such as carrots and celery first as they take longer.
I toasted my brown rice prior to cooking it and there is a recipe for that in this book.
Enjoy the Gingered Melon(so easy to make) on (p218) as a wonderful dessert. Of course the Chocolate Mousse on (p215) is a tempting treat as well.
Whether you are looking to revise conventional recipes(p67), plan healthy cancer fighting meals that will slow down the course of cancer in your body, or if you just enjoy the taste of a good Roasted Red Pepper Hummus(p113)this book has an approach to healthy eating that we all can live with and enjoy.

I purchased this book because I do believe that food is a factor in cancer prevention and treatment. The scientific evidence in this book is compelling, although I did not need to be convinced. For those who are not sure about how food affects health, this is a five-star book. For anyone who wants some recipes to put the concepts into practice, this book is only three-star or four-stars. While there is some variety in the book, some of the recipes just didn't tantalize my taste buds. Making the change from meat as a main dish can be a challenge, so I wanted some recipes to make the family crave more plant based foods, and this one misses that mark. A good vegetarian book would be a better choice for recipes, but if readers who want both an explanation of why to make the change and suggestions on what to eat instead of meat will find this book most helpful.

This book tells you exactly what you need to do to survive your cancer diagnosis. Fortunately, I was already following a high-fiber, low-fat plant-based diet, so there wasn't a big change for me. I have just begun watching the fat intake much more closely. That is the key here--keeping your weight down and the fat intake at a minimal. It's just too bad the oncologists and radiologists don't know about diet's role in cancer survival. I've told them about Dr. Barnard's film "Forks Over Knives," but they look at me blankly as if to say, "What are you talking about?" Dr. Barnard is not the only doctor who has studied diet as it relates to cancer, there's a long list. I recommend you check them out. Start with "The China Study" by Dr. T. Colin Campbell.

This book is a FANTASTIC resource for anyone looking to make healthier, well-balanced meals and start down a path to great health. The easy to read material is very informative without being repetitive or too "scientific." The second half of this book is full of FABULOUS recipes that are so easy to make and totally yummy. I bought this book for myself, my parents, as well as recommended it to my friends and coworkers. I also recommend you visit the Cancer Project's website and consider taking one of their nutrition classes (which they use this book for.) It will change your life, I promise!

This book explains the importance of eating the right foods to boost our immune system so our body can work to fight cancer. This information has been published in peer reviewed medical journals. It has delicious recipes that have disease fighting antioxidents. One of my favorite cookbooks.

This is a great book, with the latest information on not just preventing cancer, but also what to do to greatly increase your odds of surviving it. Not just useful for cancer patients, the diet Dr. Barnard presents here is also the best for preventing and reversing heart disease and diabetes as well. Anyone interested in better health would find this book worth reading, but for those suffering from a serious illnesss it is invaluable.
