The book is awesome. I am reading it little by little, and it is so understandable and eye-opening. It is the answer to a prayer I said a while back, after completing my breast cancer treatment. I realized there has to be a way to eat that helps prevent and/or fight cancer, and I wanted to know more about it without having to take a whole college course in nutrition or do a lot of painstaking research. Thank the Lord! Someone in my online support group offered this book and I took her up on it, and I am to pass it on in the group, so now I HAVE to buy one for myself because it is an excellent handbook and resource.

I'm listening to the audio book and I will be ordering the hardcopy. It has so much really good information that I will be able to use it as a guide for reference.

so simple, yet very true... I have Dr's book as my bible. I read passages at meetings for support often.
I recommend we all invest in out health and take care by following lifes' basic best intentions for our health ~
this is ~ what we are putting into our mouths and what we choose to do with our bodies ~ each and every day!
I too, am living with a cancer diagnosis, and I do not give up trying healthier lifestyle, nor do I give in to proven things that make us ill.
We owe it to those that come after us ~ to show them the way 'home' to health and wholeness!
Thanks for your direct and uncomplicated book, DR. Schreiber ~ Be Well! Joni xo

watch this video and let me know whether I should get a copy and read it.
Brian- you can share this video to your friend's dad. He can change some diet and follow this advise.

This book should come with every diagnosis of cancer. As the author says in the video and in the book, he is against "Hopelessness" and reading this book, this good accurate information would give anyone with this diagnosis HOPE. This isn't hype, it is good information in easy to read format, and easy to apply to your every day of living....scottie

In 2006 I was diagnosed with a pancreatic tumor. I had surgery twice but no chemo or radiation. I have adopted a lifestyle very similar to the one this doctor describes and I researched this lifestyle extensively--probably reading parts of 40 or 50 books and articles. My last full body scan and CAT scan in april 2010 said, "no evidence of recurrent or residual disease". I eat almost zero animal protein: drink LOTS of pure water; eat zero sugar or caffeine or alcohol but do eat a LOT of vegetables and much of them raw. We are wonderfully created to heal and I believe all healing is diviine....but we can choose to steward that healing in our lifestyle. I'm 67 years old and never felt better. Pray! Exercise! Sleep! Feed your body properly! I do take good supplements and maintain an alkaline body chemistry. Cancer hates alkalinity and oxygen and it loves sugar.

Very powerful link. I will definitely be purchasing this as a great resource for the nutrition and cooking classes I teach for The Cancer Project which subscribe to the same theory.

I am close to several people currently facing very serious illness from various cancers. This gave me great hope for them and I will make sure they know about this wonderful man. Thank you, Dr. Servan-Schreiber for your wisdom, your love and your caring about others.

I recommend this book because it has some good information about nutritional and lifestyle changes that, according to the enormous amount of reading I've done (I'm a pancreatic cancer survivor), are sound. He still gives more credence to chemo and radiation than my reading indicates is due but it is very hard to find and MD who will talk about nutrition at all. Most know little about it. My blog, on blogspot shares some of this doctor's comments about Tumeric/Curcumin. That information alone is worth the price of the book.

This book has changed my life. I am thankful forever.

I was diagnosed with a grade IV glioblastoma multiforme malignant brain tumor in October 2006 at Oregon Health & Sciences University in Portland. My neuro-surgeon is Dr. Johnny Delashaw. My neuro-oncologist is Dr. Edward Neuwelt. At the time I was given 3 to 18 months, with 12 months being a good guess. I am now out 52 months and doing well. I take mild chemo each month (Temodar). Aside from that a completely normal life. I followed many of Dr. David Servan-Schreiber's recommendation before I was diagnosed, but since reading the book I have added his specific recommendations. The only thing he does not mention in the video but he does mention in the book is red wine. I joke that it is pinot noir that is really keeping me alive. It is very important not to give up. Life is terminal. But it doesn't have to be tomorrow.

Thank you for this video. I have end-stage lung cancer and have received nothing but "hopelessness" from the medical establishment. I am feeling fine, have no pain and am physically capable of everything my life requires of me. I do not want to die in the time frame proposed for me, and I'm inspired to fight this "hopelessness" now, having seen this video, instead of contemplating my death. The tools given in this video open a small window of hope. Thank you again.

I love to hear an MD's testimonial on "WE ARE WHAT WE EAT" and how he truly practices the Hippocratic Oath of "First do no harm" and "Let they Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine your Food". Unfortunately the Medical Corporations are all in for the money and not for assisting the body to heal itself. BRAVO Dr. Servan-Schreiber!

This is so true, I've applied the "Healing Cancer for the Inside Out" and "The Gerson Therapy" diet and the results have been incredible. The chemo took a toll on my body and by eating right I'm feeling so much better and am pain free for the first time in a year.

This book is a God-send and I bless the doctor for writing it. A friend who had a "cancer scare" and was diagnosed negative, gave it to me when my scare turned out to be the real thing, breast cancer. No other book has helped me more. This book will save lives. It is written with humility, wisdom, and science in a way that anyone can read it and understand the simple things they can do to take the best care of themselves possible ... even if they never have had cancer, and especially if they don't want to get it (by creating an environment in their bodies where cancer can thrive). Read this book, give it to others, and rejoice that one man's journey is helping thousands of others and more. God bless you, Dr. Servan-Schreiber. Thank you.
