I purchased this book thinking it was going to provide me with a general rundown of why certain foods are good vs. bad, generally encouraging me to take care of my body to prevent cancer, and maintain health. In fact, I am extremely fond of this book. Reading it is like holding a meeting with myself about how to be healthy, how to feel better, how to fuel and care for my body, not just what to feed it, but why. It is a very informative text loaded with practical information based on real scientific experimental findings, not just magazine-type information loaded with blanks and subjectivity. For anyone fighting cancer, fearing cancer, or simply looking to take care of themselves with what is available in the supermarket, please take the time to look at this book. It is easy to read, chunked up into chapters with recaps and easy to understand diagrams. It is a true bridge between the scientific community, and the behavioral options we have. Check out the Authors as well, as they are very credible sources for the information they are providing. My book is currently being passed around in my family like a big hug.
