This book is very much like the other previous and superb anti cancer books written by this author.
There are a few new things,like the best types of green tea etc.What really excites me is the number of scientific studies done on foods and anti cancer effects.He quotes a remarkable no. of them.
I myself take "vegi source" from Bronsons>This was Linus Paulings favorite source of all HIS vitamins.
THIS supplement supplies doses of green tEA,TUMeric extract, fennal seed, grape extract,onion, garlic and tons of other much needed vegatables
As a physician for m37 yeares,if you want to live longer THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU>

This book was recommended to me by my neighbor friend as she was undergoing treatment for cancer at MDAnderson since last October. She learned so much about what we can do to prevent/treat cancers and she began incorporating this information into her lifestyle, as well as sharing the good news with everyone. At this moment she has received the latest test results that she is CANCER-FREE!!!

I have been making changes in my family because I believe it! It just makes sense. We can all benefit from reading this and deciding to eliminate those toxins (in our environment and what we eat). Why not?! We know that our Western diet, junk food, sugar, etc. are making us sick, obese, leading to illnesses (including cancer) that we can prevent. The author, Dr. David Servan-Shrieber, has been there, researched, and survives to tell us about it. We would do well to listen!

Read this; you'll see!

I am a cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer almost six years ago. In addition to life saving surgery plus the requisite chemo and radiation treatments, I worked with a knowledgeable nutritionist. When I read this book for the first time, I was amazed because Dr. Servan-Schreiber advocated almost exactly what I was doing to improve my health. Then I read the credits in the back and learned that he had worked with the same nutritionist, Dr. Jeanne Wallace. There is no doubt in my mind that my survival and continuing good health are due in large part to my adherence to the protocol laid out in this book. I recommend that everyone, not just cancer patients, read this book and change their habits accordingly.

I was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 29 a little over 2 years ago. I was terrified about what my future (or lack there of) would be like and this book really helped me. Not only did it help put me on a path to changing my lifestyle but it also really helped me put things in perspective. The chapter about where people fall on the life expectancy curve and why really helped me. I'd highly recommend this for a young adult with cancer.

This book definitely is useful and appears to back up its findings. My father recently diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma and I am reading what I can now. It does address death more than I thought it would which was difficult to read at times. I had to put it down a couple of times but got through it and picked it back up. I will probably read it again to have some of this sink in better; there is a lot of information here.

Grab this book before you or a love one gets cancer. It tells you how to live to hopefully avoid the C. Give to everyone diagnosed as this can make a difference in defeating the C. Written by a Dr. Who knew it takes more than medicine to defeat cancer. As a nurse I think this book is right on target

This book is plum-full of tips for enabling our bodies to be at their best for overall health and wellness, as well as general disease prevention. The wisdom described within is backed by research as is outlined throughout the book as well. While most of this research was specific to cancer, these ideals are conducive to properly fueling our systems (with various foods, by avoiding toxins, and tending to the psychological aspects of our being as well) and achieving the best possible quality of life. Whether you're looking to beat or defeat cancer, or simply improve overall health - I highly recommend it! I purchased a copy for myself, marked pages and made notes, and then purchased a copy for a friend as well. We can all benefit by incorporating this knowledge into our everyday lives. Happy reading!
