Every single page in the book has something of interest health wise and will be a publication you will refer to often, even to the point of alerting family and friends to doing what is right food wise. For the price of the book, you just might extend your own life and find that even though there are no true guarantees against cancer, at least you will have a fighting chance to be less likely to ever hear that diagnosis.

70% percent of cancers are potentially preventable. If all Canadians applied the information in this book to their own lives, imagine how many deaths would be prevented and how much money we would save our health care system.
The same authors have also written a recipe book, based on their findings, "Cuisiner avec les aliments contre le cancer". The recipes in this second book, prepared by the best Chefs of the Province of Quebec, are fantastic and easy to prepare. If you want healthy "Haute Cuisine" made simple, you won't find a better book. This book now only available in french, should be available in english very soon.
Both books would be a valuable addition to your library.
I will say, however, that I purchased the companion Cooking book, and was very disappointed with it. Sugar is included in many recipes, and sugar was clearly indicated in Foods That Fight Cancer as being lethal. So while I'd highly recommend Foods That Fight Cancer, I'd like to dissuade anyone from purchasing the companion cook book.
