Book Description

May 24 2005
· Sugar feeds Cancer: diet and supplements can starve tumors
· Nutrition makes chemo and radiation more toxic to the tumor while protecting the patient
· Nutrition changes underlying causes of cancer, improving outcome for cancer patients regardless of other therapies.

Why Beating Cancer with Nutrition is unique:
The book was developed after working with over 500 cancer patients and organizing 3 international symposiums on the subject. The information contained in BCN is both scientifically backed with references and clinically proven in the hospital with patients. This information helps cancer patients to improve quality and quantity of life. BCN had been translated into Japanese and Chinese and is being translated into Korean. BCN had become a home study continuing education course for registered nurses. BCN 2001 version will contain a 72-minute audio CD version in response to the requests from tired cancer patients who said they needed and audio version of the book to get started. BCN had sold 110,000 copies in 7 years in print, which is impressive for small publishers.

Why Patrick Quillin is Unique:

He is an internationally respected expert in the area of nutrition and cancer. He has earned his bachelor's, Master's and doctorate degrees in nutrition and is a registered and licensed dietitian ( RD & LD) and Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) with the American College of Nutrition.

Product Details

Product Description

From Library Journal

This completely revised edition of a 1994 title offers up-to-date information about the human body's own "host defense mechanisms" in the war on cancer, providing a multidisciplinary approach to treatment based on scientific studies and clinical experience. Quillin, a medical professional who has published extensively, has conducted nutrition studies with hundreds of patients in formal clinical settings. He discusses conventional therapies (chemotherapy, surgery), alternative therapies (macrobiotics, herbal and vitamin therapies), and related factors (psychosocial health, drugs, tobacco, immune dysfunctions). Appendixes list treatment referral agencies, mail-order nutrition products, suggested readings, nutritionally oriented doctors in the United States and Canada, and recipes using foods known to slow tumor growth. Written in an easy-to-read style, this work is informative, but some sections seem misplaced or redundant, and charts and graphs occasionally lack an identified source and are difficult to read. Still, this useful guide to authoritative alternatives in cancer treatment would be appreciated in public library or consumer health collections. --Virginia Lingle, Hershey Medical Ctr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to your new bible Sept. 14 2001
If the Head of Nutrition of the Cancer Institutes of America says something, you have to think he knows what he's talking about. If Linus Pauling says the information in this book is clinically proven, you have to listen! A person hit with a cancer diagnosis is initially lost, scared, and relying completely on his/her MD. That MD is probably an excellent mechanic, vital in the process, but has probably had zero training in nutrition or immunotherapy. He may even look askance at alternative and foreign medicine. Also, alternative, vitamin, supplement, nutrition, immune system information is scattered, word of mouth, attacked by the FDA, confusing. NO MORE. This book Organizes and presents all this disparate material, cites research, tells you what you need to be doing Now. It goes much further. The sections on misconceptions, toxic vitamin doses, best-to-bad foods are invaluable. The executive summary at the front is a great idea, the boxed stories of cures and the motivational blurb are written by a man who really cares and knows this stuff works. Finally, not all your food has to go through a blender, Thank you, Noreen. This is a wonderful book, your roadmap for taking charge of your health and defeating your illness. Buy it immediatly, get out some paperclips and a highlighter and change your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beating Cancer With Nutrition Sept. 21 2003
This book is the lifeline for anyone diagnosed with cancer. My father was diagnosed in January 2003 with renal cell carcinoma, metastatic. The doctors gave him less than 6 months to live. We tried a variety of the things mentioned in the book, including essiac tea, vitamins, and a nutritional diet. It had spread to his liver, spleen, and lung. Since reading and following the wonderful examples and advice in this book, my father is now working and living a productive life. The doctor was amazed and said not to change a thing that he was doing. Since he had had heart surgery and was a diabetic, many treatment options were not available. Other than interferon, he only utilized the information in Dr. Quillins book. That was enough to stop the cancer growth and give him another chance at life. Thank you Dr. Quillin for this wonderful book and the invaluable lifesaving information within.

By Bobbi
I would like to first of all explain I am not a doctor, nurse or nutritionist. The only letters associated with my name are Mrs. I've been married to a wonderful man for the past 32 years and he was diagnosed with cancer five months ago. Not just in the colon, as we were originally told, but surgery found it in his liver, spleen, stomach, upper and lower intestines. The surgeon told us that there was too much cancer and he didn't want to start "cutting him up". I was not going to sit back and just let him be taken by cancer. I purchased "Beating Cancer with Nutrition" by Patrick Quillin, PHD, RD, CNS after reading a pamphlet, written by him, that I picked up at the local supermarket. I immediately started my husband on supplements that were recommended for the various symptoms he had. Our oncologist told us the liver is the best measure of the amount of cancer and that the tumors in the liver shrink in direct proportion to the amount of cancer in the rest of the body. The tumor on his liver was 13cm by 10cm at the time of the first CAT scan. His second CAT scan, four months later, shows it is now 9cm by 7cm. Yes, my husband is getting chemotherapy in addition to the healthy eating and supplements. He has gained back 20 of the 50 pounds he lost and is in better health than he has been in years. His tumor markers have dropped from 75.8 to 20.5 in 2 months. I have no reason to believe that he won't be free of cancer.
I have read this book from cover to cover and have seen what putting Dr Quillin's advice into use can do. If you, anyone you love, care about or know are faced with cancer, you owe it to yourself and to them to read this book, put his words to the test. It's not hard to understand. I have only a high school diploma and a strong desire to bring my husband back to health. All you need is a desire to beat cancer and as Dr Quillin says "Hope, Optimism and a Fighting Spirit".

5.0 out of 5 stars Beating Cancer Wit Nutrition Sept. 21 2003
This book and the information in it, along with prayer, literally saved my fathers life. He was diagnosed with metastatic renal cell carcinoma that had spread to the liver, lung and spleen. Less than 6 months was his life expectancy. That was in January of 2003. He is now in remission. There is now no trace of cancer cells in his lung or spleen. When we got the book, he was on 125 mg of fentanyl patch, now is on 15 mg morphine twice a day and is weaning off of it. He was in so much pain, just wanted it to end at first, then started feeling better. The doctors were amazed at his recovery. He is a heart patient and has diabetes, so was unable to have chemo or radiation. Thank you, Dr. Quillin for giving us hope and the means to fight this battle.

Spending 16yrs as a Nurse and studying nutritional health and suddenly in the battle for my own life with inherited Breast Cancer, I came upon this book. When I was diagnosed, Nov.29 2005, I was late Stage 3 and until demanding, demanding! a biopsy, I was treated as Fibrocystic Disease. I underwent a left complete radical mastectomy with lymph node removal (13/15 positive and 7 completely taken over) and a right (prophylactic) complete mastectomy. Underwent 8 treatments of chemo, 28 treatments of radiation, and a requested bilateral oophrectomy.
In the book,I loved the: 21 day approach to educate yourself and get started, detailed information it provides, list of websites it recommends to help find products and an informative CD for those who cannot read all the book due to their ailment.
Some of the main topics that really helped me recover enough to even start this process were: What cancer craves... --> sugar! and to keep it out of your diet as much as possible. I was never a sweets eater but I was having massive sugar cravings and it was a blessing to know why. Also, the protein types you need daily to help fight gave me the energy and health I needed to get out of bed and started. As for joint pain from the chemo, starting on salmon oils to increase my omega 3 that helps reduce inflammation and to reduce red meats with lots of omega 6 that increases inflammation was just incredible with instant results. This book is easy to read, very achievable and cost effective. Make a list and hit the local stores around you. I will admit the immunopower is expensive and unfortunately a bit of a luxury item. What I would like to see added for information is what symptoms to watch for from supplements if your diet is rich enough. And mouth care from side effects to chemo and Oral Thrush.
