This book is a wealth of information about nutrition and cancer! The author is doing an excellent job translating the most recent cancer / nutrition research data into practical recommendations. I like how every chapter ends with a summary of practical steps to take towards improving our nutrition and in turn prevent cancer in an evidence-based way. I highly recommend this book both as a dietitian and as a consumer.
As someone who has a been personally touched by cancer, I can can tell you that this book provides a wealth of information that you will NOT get from the medical community. There is a great misconception surrounding cancer, namely "that it just happens." Christina clearly explains what cancer is and how it comes to be present in the body. This is the starting point for understanding how to prevent and overcome cancer and the role that nutrition plays in this process.
I wish that I had this book when I was diagnosed. It provides a clear and concise overview of the importance of nutrition in optimizing your immune system and in promoting the integrity of your cellular DNA so that rogue cancer cells do not proliferate and form tumors or otherwise compromise your health. If you are serious about preventing and avoiding cancer in your future, this book is a great resource, providing easy to understand and follow advice on using nutrition to fortify your immune system through proper food selection.
It's well thought out and structured so you learn step-by-step, what foods you should eat, why you should eat them, as well as what foods you should remove from your diet and why. The book also addresses the dangers that might be present in your environment and provides concrete steps to reduce or eliminate the most harmful and toxic substances that could lead to cancer or other diseases of the body.
Furthermore, Christina, provides hope for all those who might feel as if they are doomed to getting cancer due to a genetic predisposition. She debunks this myth and shares how if you change your perspective about food, so that you see it as the key to a maintaining a healthy and disease free body, you will greatly reduce your risk of ever getting cancer regardless of any genetic factors that may be present.
Overall, this is a fantastic book that I highly recommend to anyone who is concerned about their health and the health of their loved ones!
This book is a revelation for anyone, whether you are a cancer patient or at risk yourself, or generally want to incorporate the latest scientific findings into your diet and lifestyle to maintain / improve your health and energy levels. It is a comprehensive, easy-to-read collection of practicable steps and explanations on the nutritional science behind them. You learn about the effects that different foods and herbs have on your body and how to combine and prepare, cook or use them in order to maximise their benefits. The book also tells you what to avoid, or how to at least minimise the negative effects that certain foods or cooking methods can have. I love that you won't have to follow a rigid regime - mix and match as it suits you, and you also get guidance on how to powerfully combine the various strategies. You'll also find a link to a free online assessment that will give you customised suggestions on changes you could make. Basically, the book helps you grow into a healthier lifestyle with ease. I remember when my mom was first diagnosed with cancer and how difficult it was to track down all this information from different sources. Even doctors often can't tell you much about anti-cancer nutrition, or are not up to date. But with this book, you have it all in one place. I strongly recommend it.
I found this book very informative and easy to read. There is a lot of useful information which is supported by a wealth of evidence. It is written in a way that is empowering to the reader and allows for us to take more control over our own health and wellbeing. I would thoroughly recommend it.
Ending the dread of cancer is our responsibility. Each person is personally responsible to remain healthy and to make sure that those close to him grow up healthy. We should do the best we can to minimize risks. “God helps those that help themselves”. Anticancer – The Preventive Power of Food, is an invaluable guide to take our health into our own hands. Christina shares her love and passion about nutrition in clear and simple words in a language easily understood and remembered guiding us to a healthier lifestyle and restoring hope that we have the power to end the dread of cancer.. I would not only recommend this book, I would make it a gift to those I care about..
