From the Back Cover

Put nature's bounty to work in the fight to avert cancer

Research shows that up to 80 percent of all cancers can be prevented through diet and lifestyle changes. You can reduce your risk with a nutritional program based on variety, balance, and moderation. This collaboration between leading cancer prevention experts and top gourmet chefs shows that healthy eating can both fight cancer and please the palate.

One of the nation's leading cancer research facilities, the Strang Cancer Prevention Center has placed diet and lifestyle changes at the foreground of a prevention strategy. Much more than a simple cookbook, this unique resource presents cutting-edge nutritional and scientific data on cancer, along with tantalizing, healthy recipes. In The Strang Cancer Prevention Center Cookbook, you'll learn about:

  • Using phytochemicals--the new functional foods--to promote good health
  • How to determine the quality of your current diet--and improve it
  • Making a delicious eating plan part of your cancer-preventing lifestyle
  • Lifestyle modifications designed to minimize cancer risk

Chefs from such world-renowned restaurants as the Four Seasons, Galileo, and Union Square Café serve up more than 100 delicious recipes, including:

  • Portobello Mushroom-Stuffed Chiles Rellenos
  • Asparagus Salad with Black Truffles
  • Herb- and Spice-Crusted Mahimahi with Watermelon Salsa
  • Peach and Blueberry Crisp
  • Warm Mango and Pear Soup with Fruit Sorbets

The best cure is always prevention. Discover how a healthy diet and lifestyle can keep you fit and cancer-free.
