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

Review:

"After undergoing chemotherapy and surgery for brain cancer, Servan-Schreiber, a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, asked his oncologist if any lifestyle changes would prevent a relapse; the answer was no. Certain this was wrong, Servan-Schreiber spent months researching a mass of scientific data on natural defenses against cancer. After a lucid introduction to cancer and its causes, he points out studies indicating that a poor diet, unhealthy habits (like smoking), some hormones, and environmental toxins increase risk. But as his advice grows more specific, evidence dwindles that these steps work. Eating organic foods, avoiding red meat and processed food, and eliminating household chemicals seem reasonable, but readers curious about how much turmeric or garlic to consume and how much it lowers their cancer risk will find no answers. Servan-Schreiber also advocates a positive, life-affirming attitude, illustrating with anecdotes of patients whose cancers disappeared when they attained inner peace. Servan-Schreiber underscores that his advice should be an adjunct to, not a replacement for, conventional treatments like surgery and chemotherapy, in this spirited mixture of good medical information, helpful suggestions and alternative medicine. (Sept. 22)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Combining memoir with a synthesis of science, and describing both conventional and alternative ways to slow and prevent cancer, "Anticancer" advocates a revolutionary change in the way individuals understand and confront the disease.

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.

Synopsis:

“If you want to build better health and a better future, this book makes an excellent tool kit.”—David A. Kessler, MD, author of The End of Overeating and former commissioner of the FDA

 

It sometimes seems as if everyone around us is being diagnosed with a chronic illness—and that we might soon join them. In Disease-Proof, leading specialist in preventive medicine Dr. David Katz draws upon the latest scientific evidence and decades of clinical experience to explain how we can slash our risk of every major chronic disease—heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, dementia, and obesity—by an astounding 80%. Dr. Katz arms us with skillpower: a proven, user-friendly set of tools that helps us make simple behavioral changes that have a tremendous effect on our health and well-being. Inspiring, groundbreaking, and prescriptive, Disease-Proof proves making lasting lifestyle changes is easier than we think. 

About the Author

" A handy book to have around . . . a common-sense blueprint for healthy living."

-The Chicago Tribune

"In presenting the science of cancer, Servan-Schreiber offers clear and vivid descriptions. . . . [And his] writing offers much more than science. It is full of passion for his topic and compassion for his patients"

-The Seattle Times

Stop! Read this book before your next trip to the grocery store.

Schrieber weaves a gripping tale of his own 15-year remission from cancer using a very specific food plan with salient facts about dangerous shifts in the American diet over the last 75 years -- shifts that have dramatically increased our obesity and cancer rates.

Schrieber doesn't blame laziness, fast food or video games for our dietary woes. Rather, he points the finger at our propensity to take advice from companies and individuals -- dairy and meat producers, pharmaceutical companies and medical doctors -- with commercial interests at heart.

He gives us hope with new data about cancer inhibiting and cancer fighting properties of several food categories, and backs this up with historical statistics on populations that have used these foods for centuries.
