Format: Perfect Paperback
This volume provides both an introduction to and a summary of over 50 years of cancer research and treatment. Johanna Budwig (1908-2003) who was nominated for the Nobel Prize seven times was one of Germany's leading scientists of the 20th Century, a biochemist and blood specialist with a special interest in fats. Working with Otto Warburg's research into cancer and cellular oxygen-deficiency, she identified in 1951 the precise biochemical breakdown point which results in cancer. Studying the blood of cancer sufferers, she identified cancer principally as a "fat" problem.

She was one of the first to help define the categories of fats into the types that are accepted today. Dr Budwig theorized that restricting the ingestion of the "bad fats" (trans-fats, hydrogenated and saturated fats), while at the same time ingesting plenty of the "good fats" (along with a diet of fresh living foods and juices) would rejuvenate even cancerous cells, oxygenating them once again and healing the sufferer in a healthy way from the inside. Her work therefore stood in opposition to medical orthodoxy with its preference for chemotherapy and irradiation and to the interests representing these.

She chose flax oil as the source of the most abundant supply of the good fats. She knew also that these must be bonded to sulpherated proteins for them to be made water-soluble and easily assimilated by the cells of the body. For this she used quark or cottage cheese (which contains an abundance of such proteins) in a certain ratio to the oil.

In using this Oil-Protein formula with her patients what she found was gratifying indeed. Over a period of approximately 3 months tumours gradually receded. The blood became a healthy red colour, anaemia disappeared and life-energy was restored.

The book is technical in part and needed to be reread in part for me to truely absorb. What she is describing is really a brilliant discovery....Its over 50 years, 9 nominations for the nobel prize and the ray of hope for all who have cancer is just being revealed...

I can not say enough good things...For me an Engineer It is the threshold for a new and wonderfull growth potential for all that is human...It is a must reading...read it slow..no speed reading...
and let your soul absorb what is really being said...Good Luck

This is written by europe's top physisist, researcher, scientist, and doctor of the 20th century. I don't think I'm exagerating even a little bit. Dr. Johanna Budwig completed the research that Pullitzer prize-winners started and concluded that proper use of highly unsaturated oils would re-energize every cell in the body, disolve tumors, and recharge our "dead battery". She went further by curing thousands of cancer and other serious conditions, many considered incurable and terminal. She has earned the gratitude and respect of many patients and doctors, and earned the hatred of medical officialdom and drug companies. She dared to cure and revitalize people with items as simple as flaxseed oil and cottage cheese. Genius

I thought this was an excellent explanatory book detailing just how Dr. Budwig arrived at her findings regarding the flax seed oil and cottage cheese potential cure for cancer. It reads like more like a documentary of her experiences, but it still reveals quite a bit of valuable information for those wanting to know how things work.

I might be wrong, but this book looks like it was not written by DR.BUDWIG. It looks like someone clipped together pages from her work without giving a thought to creating a comprehensive whole book. It was published under her name, because it contains her work, but this book could not be put together by Dr. Budwig (why- the explanations are all over the place and not clear). It was put together to drew attention to her work. I am sure this was done with the best intentions but without giving it to professionals for review. The translation was also done by someone who absolutely has no idea about the subject matter, it feels like Google translate program was used.
.

I believe that Dr. Budwig made incredible contributions to understanding the function of the human cell, applying formal scientific breakthrough principals of Planck, Wartburg, Einstein etc. as well as using paper chromatography.
Although I have a a masters in chemical engineering, it was very difficult to follow the science described . The book is not written in a logical sequence. .
After reading the book, the reader will not be able to apply the brilliant scientific discoveries for his/her own use.
Obviously Dr. Budwig proved to be able to make use of her discovery in a simple way to help people to recover from desperate illnesses.
The application of the discovery is not clearly stated in detail in the book, except one fact: flax-seed oil has to be taken by sulphurated protein, like cottage cheese. I expected more practical advice.

I admire Dr. Budwig! This is a good book to start with - to get an idea about her discoveries. However, it is a pity that her other books are not translated in English! What I wish I had right now in my hands is detailed instructions on how to put in practice her discoveries!

Her discoveries are more than 50 years old, and it's such a pity the medical community does not put any of it into practice, as an official protocol to treat cancer! In fact, it's a pity that this knowledge is not a must-read for every human being, for every student. If we all knew these facts, we would make other choices about food and lifestyle, and not so many people would not get cancer and many other diseases, to begin with.

I'm convinced that not only the cancer patients, but everyone should be following her diet and advices, in order to have a healthy lifestyle. My current diet is about 80-90% as that of Budwig's recommendations, and it is really not a difficult thing to do - I enjoy my diet and my choices!
And I recommend this book - Budwig's discoveries and recommendations - to every human being!
