Description
When Dr. David Servan-Schreiber was diagnosed with brain cancer, it changed his life. Confronting what medicine knows about illness, the little-known workings of the body's natural cancer-fighting capacities, and his own will to live, Servan-Schreiber found himself on a journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration, and finally to health. Combining memoir with a clear explanation of what makes cancer cells thrive and what inhibits them, and describing both conventional and alternative ways to slow and prevent cancer, Anticancer is revolutionary in its clarity. It is a moving story of a doctor's inner and outer search for healing; radical in its discussion of the environment, lifestyle, and trauma; and inspiring and cautionary in its certainty that cancer cells lie dormant in all of us--and we all must care for the "terrain" in which they exist.

display_description This new edition addresses current developments in cancer research and offers more tips on how people living with cancer can fight it and how healthy people can prevent it. The new edition includes: the latest research on 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 reduces mortality for breast cancer by an astounding 68 percent after completion of treatment; and new supporting evidence for the entire Anticancer program.--From publisher description.
