I bought this book because a friend of ours has prostate cancer and I wanted to be more informed. There are a lot of titles on the "shelf" in this area - nutrition and cancer, vitamins, supplements, megadoses, minerals, what to eat and what not to eat. Some of them have extraordinary claims for cures. There are a lot of philosophies on diet, which doesn't help a cancer patient when they need sound information rather than opinions and beliefs about food. Perhaps there would be less of this confusion if conventional medical treatment started to use nutrition as a part of mainstream cancer treatment.
I must say that I am really pleased with this book. As I get into it, the content gets better and better - a sign of a well informed and thorough piece of work. Dr Blaylock is very realistic about his purpose and doesn't make extraordinary claims. Instead he systematically reveals & explains the current research about vitamins and supplements, always in the context of cancer. He has a prevailing view that "fresh is best" and qualifies this. It seems to me he also has a hopeful tone, which is sometimes missing from practitioners.
I have always been interested in the findings and ideas of Dr Linus Pauling (eg see ISBN 094015921 and ISBN 0380702894) and also Dr Abram Hoffer (eg see ISBN 1550820788). Pauling has been decried by some (though the results of these two doctors' work speak for themselves). For me, this book represents in part a confirmation of their ideas, although the book is less prescriptive than the above and has a broader perspective on diet.
One of the central themes in this book is the immune system, and how to strengthen it. Blaylock is careful to indicate where certain foods or supplements actually encourage rather than inhibit cancer growth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients Feb. 17 2008
By mandala
Format:Paperback
How fortuitous that I should pick up this book on the very day I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I knew it was possible to prevent cancer with nutrition but I had no idea it was possible to actually fight it and win the battle. Since implementing some of the suggestions offered by Dr. Blaylock I have reduced my pain levels tremendously. I learned that certain foods and supplements can act as chemotherapeutic agents. I learned that certain foods will mount a defense against cancer by stimulating the immune cells. I highly recommend this book for those who have cancer and those who do not but want to prevent it. The bibliography is extensive and the resource list is excellent. A diet plan is lacking but one can easily put together a diet plan using the information provided.

As a physician, I am often critical of authors who write about any form of health medical or alternative and want things proven rather than in theory. However, this is simply the best book I have read on the subject of cancer and nutritional therapies! I have all patients in my office with a cancer diagnosis read this book and start utilizing the ifnormation to help in their cancer treatment!

This book was written years ago and I would say that many of this writer's beliefs have become pretty mainstream today. I used the knowledge and advice in this book to guide in my own recovery journey.

One of the central themes in this book is the immune system, and how to strengthen it. Blaylock is careful to indicate where certain foods or supplements actually encourage rather than inhibit cancer growth. He is also good at providing ammunition for the patient to be able to face some of the resistance that arises from physicians who are dubious about the role and value of nutrition in treatment.
I gave this book four stars not five, for a couple of reasons. If there had been a summary or tables or suggested outline programme to help the patient construct their own nutrition regime, this would have hit the bell! As it stands, I will dig through the chapters and index to glean a summary of points to put into an action plan. I was also hoping to find a website with some level of currency and discussion about the book - patients asking questions, an updated resource list, general advice, a blog perhaps, or supplemental material. In a word, 'support'. (See [...]
Overall, a very good book: readable, thorough, very comprehensive, practical and a good reference - recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guidance from a cancer doctor Aug. 21 2004
By Bill Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Dr. Blaylock has gathered all the information you need to understand the importance of combining natural substances with your cancer treatment. He describes all chemotherapy drugs in great detail.

I was lucky enough to discover this book just as I was leaving home to travel to Fort Worth, Texas. I was going there to help a young man convince his ex-wife that nine different chemo drugs were not going to cure their 7-year old son of his leukemia without supplementation with natural substances. While my wife drove, I read Dr. Blaylock's book. It was as if he were speaking directly to me and the ex-wife. He explained, for example, that none of the drugs being used on Jeffrey had ever been tested together for harmful synergies. None of them had ever been tested on children.

When I gave Dr. Blaylock's book to the ex-wife at the courthouse in Fort Worth, I said a prayer that she would read it. She did. She withdrew her case against her ex-husband and they worked out a natural regimen for Jeffrey. It worked. Within a few weeks, Jeffrey was back to normal after being near death. I atrribute his survival to the information in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing help for cancer patients! Wow! Feb. 20 2006
By John F - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
this book is astonishing in it's clarity and logical (and fairly current c 2003) presentation of many, many practical and simple things to do nutritionally and supplementally to support the cancer patient to help their body fight the cancer. All the author's claims seem to have solid references provided. I have done health research for a few years and this book stands out as probably the best (true and useable) I've ever seen. I'm particularly keen on this subject as my dear mother recently was diagnosed with breast cancer. I'd recommend this book to anyone. It is true,

"eat your broccoli", but also many practical recommendations are made on supplements to take some of them new to me, and info is provided where to get them also. This book is a one-of-a-kind, must read for anyone concerned with overcoming (or avoiding) cancer. Buy the book for your loved one or yourself, as soon as possible. The word I have for this book is astonishing. I marked mine up a lot to underline key things. There's so much there.

Thanks for oppty to post my review. John Shell, Virginia

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT INFO ON SUPPLEMENTS TARGETTING TUMOR SUPRESSION Jan. 15 2008
By Susie Epstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My 43 year old husband was recently diagnosed with terminal lung cancer as a result of his radiation treatment 10 years ago for his Hogkins lymphoma. He underwent 4 months of chemo and also was fortunate to consult with a oncology nutritionist who recommended various supplements, some used in Europe for cancer therapy and not classified there as "supplements". My husband has the rarest type of lung cancer and it is typically described as the least responsive to chemo. The supplements recommended by the nutritionist target tumor supression, and angiogenesis (the ability of a tumor to create it's own blood vessels and spread). I bought this book because I was wowed and awed by another book of his, "Nutrional secrets that will save your life", or something like that. That the author is a neurosurgeon got my attention as someone I could likely trust to adequately research what supplements are effective for cancer. The book is easy to read and explains the action of the cancer fighting supplements, and is appropriate for readers without a medical background. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in learning how to not only safely fight cancer (and without all the side effects of Western medicine) but also how to prevent cancer and increase their overall immune system.
