The revolutionary New York Times bestseller about powerful lifestyle changes that can fight and prevent cancer--an integrative approach based on the latest research

An international phenomenon, Anticancer has been a long-running bestseller in the U.S. since Viking first published it in fall 2008. Now, this updated edition draws on the most recent clinical studies and offers more tips on how people living with cancer can fight it and how healthy people can prevent it. The new edition of Anticancer includes:

* More benefits of anticancer foods, including new alternatives to sugar and cautions about some that are now on the market

* New information about how vitamin D strengthens the immune system

* Warnings about common food contaminants that have recently been proven to contribute to cancer progression

* A new chapter on mind-body approaches to stress reduction, with recent studies that show how our reactions to stress can interfere with natural defenses and how friendships can support healing in ways never before understood

* A groundbreaking study showing that lifestyle modification, as originally proposed in Anticancer , reduces mortality for breast cancer by an astounding 68 percent after completion of treatment

* New supporting evidence for the entire Anticancer program

This book is billed as "All of us have cancer cells in our bodies. But not all of us will develop cancer."Indeed Dr. Servan-Schreiber shows us methodically how we can manage our lives regardless of whether we have cancer or not such that we can live better. The author tells us about all areas of our lives which we can change so that we can fight off cancer. Simple changes like changes to our diet can go a long way in this fight against cancer, so much so, that we wonder why more mainstream physicians don't advocate them.
