From the Back Cover
I have written this book for you because I wish someone had written one for me. There are volumes and volumes of printed material available on cancer. But I could not find a book written by anyone that could tell me, man to man, in simple terms, what I should expect from this disease and the treatments that are associated with cancer. I did not realize at the beginning of the diagnosis that I was preparing for the fist fight of my life, for my life. The purpose of this book is to also talk to you about your eating habits and how they may influence your outcome with cancer. If you are like me, and most other guys, when it comes to eating, you are a two legged dumpster on the loose in fast food chains, convenience stores, chain restaurants, and super markets. My new passion, and I hope it will be yours, is to learn about good food. I think the right kind of food can help you fight cancer. -Captain J. "Tug" Rainey
