Book Description

Dec 18 2009

With more than 1 million copies sold in thirty-five languages in close to fifty countries, Anticancer has been acclaimed around the world. A bestseller in Canada too, Anticancer has now been thoroughly revised to analyze and explain the latest studies and put them into context. This revised edition includes

• more anti-cancer foods: learn why stone fruits (plums, peaches and nectarines) are as rich in anticancer phytonutrients as berries

• groundbreaking examples of food synergy: discover how tomatoes and broccoli fight cancer more effectively when eaten together

• revised guidelines for cell phone use: find out what precautionary measures are advised, based on a new long-term study

• new research on “the anticancer mind”: understand how the mind-body balance can slow cancer growth

Drawing on his own experience as both a doctor and a patient, Dr. Servan-Schreiber does not dismiss conventional medicine; he shows how we can all powerfully strengthen our bodies’ natural defences against cancer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changer Feb. 8 2010
If you want to make a change in your life then read this book. You don't have to have a cancer problem to buy it. Everyone has cancer cells in them. The question is whether they will stay dormant of not.
The book has been a life changer for myself. I got melanoma in 2007 and then a relapse in 2009. I kept asking myself why.
this book has helped me so much. Buy it and change your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Feb. 8 2011
This book was extremely enlightening and informative. My brother is currently fighting his second battle with Lymphoma in 6 years and it is nice to know some of things he is going through and feeling without him having to share it with me during this rough time. I purchased a copy for myself, my mother and for my brother and his wife and it is helping all of us lead a healthier and a more positive and optimistic life!

The book is excellent. It provides practical tips to modify diet, to deal with conflicts,to be more aware of our spiritual, mental and emotional aspects, that have great impact in cancer treatments.
The tables located at the end of the book are great resources to take when shopping for healthy foods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anticancer:A new way of Life Dec 20 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Anticancer: A new Way of Life. This book is the best book of it's kind that I have read. It is written by a MD who has lived 14 years plus after his own diagnosis. He combines modern medicine with easily achievable dietary and life style changes that help to ward off cancer or fight existing cancer cells. He explains how these work physiologically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book - informative and motivating June 28 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was interesting, informative and inspiring. It is well-written and full of helpful information that I believe could easily impact your health, backed up by medical science. Once you get into it, you won't be able to put it down, and what you learn from this educated man will change your life. I'd recommend that anyone --- in sickness and in health --- concerned with good health read this book.
