Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New York Times and international bestseller-now updated with the latest research

Anticancer has been a bestselling phenomenon since Viking first published it in fall 2008. Now, a new edition addresses current developments in cancer research and offers more tips on how people living with cancer can fight it and how healthy people can prevent it. The new edition of Anticancer includes:

• The latest research on anticancer foods, including new alternatives to sugar and cautions about some that are now on the market

• New information about how vitamin D strengthens the immune system

• Warnings about common food contaminants that have recently been proven to contribute to cancer progression

• A new chapter on mind-body approaches to stress reduction, with recent studies that show how our reactions to stress can interfere with natural defenses and how friendships can support healing in ways never before understood

• A groundbreaking study showing that lifestyle modification, as originally proposed in Anticancer, reduces mortality for breast cancer by an astounding 68 percent after completion of treatment

• New supporting evidence for the entire Anticancer program

Synopsis:

This updated edition of the international bestseller addresses current developments in cancer research and offers more tips on how people living with cancer can fight it and how healthy people can prevent it.

Synopsis:

From a renowned oncologist and pioneer in integrative medicine, a breakthrough in treating and preventing disease by altering our genetic blueprint

What if the food we eat could target not only diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and cancer but the effects of aging? What if our diets could affect every aspect of our health by controlling the expression

of our genes?

While modern medicine largely focuses on treating symptoms with prescription drugs, Dr. Gaynors revolutionary approach goes straight to the most fundamental level: our DNA. Although we cannot change the genes we are born with, we can change how they are expressed over the course of our lives through foods and supplements that prevent and reverse disease. The Gene Therapy Plan presents the science behind these ideas and provides easy-to-follow meal plans and recipes to help put them into practice. Empowering and informative, this meticulously researched book by the author of Nurture Nature, Nurture Health offers accessible prescriptions for freeing ourselves from what we thought was our genetic destiny.
