Review

Doug Kaufmann looks at the science behind cancer and raises serious questions about the long held beliefs about its causation. -- Roby D. Mitchell, M.D., Ph.D.

Doug Kaufmann's book should be required reading for researchers at the National Cancer Institute. -- Patrick Quillin, Ph.D, R.D., C.N.S.

This book agrees with my desire to have people recognize that cancer is a biologically-induced spore (fungus) transformation disease. -- Milton W. White, M.D, F.I.C.S.

From the Inside Flap

DEDICATION

This book is dedicated to the faces I hope we will all see one day.

First, Seaver ~ a young boy ravaged by cancer. I learned more about life than about cancer in my short relationship with him. His addicting smile, even in end stages of cancer, will remain a lesson for me my entire life. Before his death, he shared with me his after-life expectation of becoming heaven’s gatekeeper. Today, many years later, I am convinced that in order to see the face of God, we will all first see the face of Seaver. If you knew this brave young boy as I did, your walk on earth would be carefully planned so as to witness the smiles on their faces.

I also dedicate this book to Dr. Beverly Hunt ~ her painstaking work, even in the face of sweemingly insurmountable odds, never went unnoticed. Almost six years of her life has been spent in completion of this book. With childlike candor, Beverly kept my nose to the grindstone, night after night, weekend after weekend. All the while, Beverly was convinced that completing the book you hold in your hands would save peoples lives. Rarely does one meet an individual with such talent and steadfast dedication. I am humbled to be her friend.

To Alice, my mother, and to John, my father ~ know that you allowed this discovery by constantly "raising the bar." You each told me that no matter what I did with my life, I was expected to do it better than anyone else. Thank you for your vigilance.

To Ruth, my wife, and my sons Evan and Ethan ~

I know a lot of time was missed in writing this book that perhaps should have been spent with you. Thank you for the encouragement you lent. You have unselfishly assisted in completing this book so that others may benefit by heeding it.

I love you dearly.

Finally, to David ~ without whom this book may never have been written. Thank you.

My sister bought this book and I thought she was crazy for paying so much for it; but I took it away from her and read it first!!! I wasn't done yet before I went out and gladly paid the price for my own copy!!! This book is truly worth twice the money! There are SO many things that this books pulls together; for health in general as well as for cancer. Since reading the book I have interviewed several cancer patients and have found out that the things pointed out in the book are actually true. They are also true to my experience, which might be cancer and might not. I am NOT going to the doctor to be poisoned and butchered to find out. But everything I've experienced hangs with what Doug says in this book, and with what cancer patients have told me, and I am trying the antifungal ideas set forth in this book...I heartily recommend this book to all, not just for cancer. As well as Doug's website, iknowthecause.com, and Dr. Mercola's website and free newsletter at mercola.com. (You won't find Doug's books in the used sections--I've tried. Apparently when people buy his books they never give them up!!!) Thank you to the people who are decent and honest and have integrity, and are trying to help us.

Kaufman's "theory" regarding many diseases being caused by mold, fungus and yeast is saving lives. I have been CURED of arthritis and allergies, by following the advice in this book and in Kaufman's other books, "The Fungus Link" and "Infectious Diabetes". When using a Kaufman-type diet, I had symptoms of nausea, followed by a rash, which I believe was the yeast in my body coming up through my stomach, then out through my skin, in the form of a rash, in search of it's natural "food" of carbs and sugars. What a relief to know this cause of so many deadly illnesses is now gone from my body! This book will tell you how to seek a cure, not just relief from symptoms!

This is the most definitive book I have ever read on the subject of the link between cancer and fungi. It is well thought out and superbly researched. Kaufmann and Dr. Beverly Hunt know what they are talking about.
To help put this book into practice, Dr. Hunt has a companion cookbook that I would highly recommend (find it on eBay) called "LifeChange Cookbook, Low-Carbohydrate Essentials for Conquering Fungal Infection" by Beverly T. Hunt and Virginia O'Brien.
I highly recommend them both.

This is an outstanding book that highlights many fascinating discoveries that anyone with cancer (or a loved one with cancer) should know. It's hard to believe that this information is not more publicly known.

Anyone, and I do mean anyone, who is looking to prevent cancer, or has cancer HAS to get this book! It is the most thoroughly researched book on the connection between fungus and cancer that has ever been written. Like another reviewer said, it is hard to believe that the information in this book is not more publicly known. I only wish Doug Kaufmann and Know The Cause would re-release this book. The newer 2005 version that he made into an easy reading handbook does not do the subject the thorough justice that this book does. Yes this earlier larger version can be quite the sophisticated read in a few areas but the science and the research that went into this book is worth it. Once you start reading this book you instantly realize how important a contribution to cancer research this book is and you cannot put it down until you have read every single page.

For anyone interested in the causes of cancer, no cancer research library is complete without this book. It could save your life!

I thought I was buying this book on Doug's website and instead he is selling a pamphlet (basically each chapter is condensed to one page)of less than 35 pages (and 15 pages is a questionaire such as "do you drink alcohol?). His website shows a picture of this EXACT book without any information and has a strict no return policy. A small throw away pamphlet he sells for $20 plus $5 shipping. What a waste of money. Wish I could have read the book. I watched Doug on TV and was interested to get the book, now I just consider him a liar and a cheat. Of course his website wouldn't print this review but I am hoping Amazon will. Amazon sells this book for $35 so I thought $25 was a bargain. Should have trusted Amazon. So angry at being cheated.

This book will open the eyes of your understanding to why so many of us have contracted cancer - which is often really mold and fungus.

Change your diet! Take supplements to attack fungus! And eliminate your cancer!
