I wish I could buy and send each of you a new book that we are finishing reading: "ANTI cancer: A new way of life. " by David servan-scheriber,MD,PHD
, It has enormously compelling evidence for simple lifesaving recommendations.
It is well documented and Pete keeps saying "How I wish I could have read this two or three years ago. There are foods in the book that actually make cancer stop growing at the same rate. There are definite charts that show that certain foods that we all know about allready, but keep doubting whether they are really worthwhile. There are foods that help better with radiation, with chemotherapy, and with other drugs.. Pete is a chemist by profession, and he questions things . This book will make you really mindful of what you eat and how you think. It is a scientific study that everyone that has cancer should read.
The people in this forum are on a mission , and I just wanted to give my two cents in here today... I know I will probably get some flack for touting this book to all, but I want you all to look into it...Please. I look forward to seeing everyone's posts and hear and read their stories. You are all so great. Diane yeah

Hi Di,

We are interested in anything helpful to long term recovery and health. Just starting to investigate diet in greater detail now that the holidays are near, and we have more time for reading and learning! Thanks for this suggestion. We will also try and get a hold of the book and read it. Have a great Christmas. cheers, Lana

Hi Diane,

 

I was at my local bookstore (small town) and saw a copy. I came home to double-check the author name again from your post. I'll go buy it tomorrow...

 

Thanks for the suggestion.

I ordered Anti cancer online at Amazon. com for only $16.97 in hard cover. The reviews on amazon were 5 out of 5 for this book. I have mine now, but my wife wants to give it to me for a xmas present.
