Banyen's Description: 

This is a thoroughly revised new 2010 edition.  Over a decade ago, tests revealed Dr. David Servan-Schreiber had a lethal cancer of the brain. He received conventional treatment of surgery and chemotherapy and the cancer went into remission, but he then suffered a relapse. 

As a physician, researcher and former director of the Center of Integrative Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, he had access to both the latest cancer research and a wealth of information on new approaches to treatment and prevention. Anticancer is the culmination of his research on and personal experience with cancer, both as a doctor and as a patient. It’s the book he would have read to avoid getting cancer in the first place and the one he would have wanted by his side when he was fighting the disease.

Anticancer examines the many factors involved in the growth of cancers in the body and how we can use our own biology to fight them. We can avoid the progression of the disease by guarding against imbalances in our environment, by adjusting our diets to minimize inflammation and include tumour-fighting phytochemicals, and by understanding the psychological components that can slow cancer development (that is, help us live well!).

Included is a very useful yet concise 16-page removable colour “Anticancer Action” guide.

Anticancer highlights a combination of the best conventional treatments with often overlooked alternative therapies. Featuring his personal story, the cases of other survivors, and his in-depth scientific and medical background, his book empowers readers with knowledge and tools to combat cancer. And, best of all—and the reason this book is getting a lot of attention—the lifestyle he describes can prevent cancer from arising at all.

“Compelling evidence and arguments for participating in our own health by supporting our deep, natural capacity for healing. Everybody should read this book and enact its simple but potentially life-saving recommendations.” —Jon Kabat-Zinn,  author of Coming to Our Senses

“An absolutely indispensable guide for cancer survivors and anyone who wants to adopt healthy lifestyles in order to prevent cancer.” —Dr. Richard Belliveau, author of Foods That Fight Cancer



Publisher’s Description: 

With more than 1 million copies sold in thirty-five languages in close to fifty countries, Anticancer has been acclaimed around the world. A bestseller in Canada too, Anticancer has now been thoroughly revised to analyze and explain the latest studies and put them into context. This revised edition includes

more anti-cancer foods: learn why stone fruits (plums, peaches and nectarines) are as rich in anticancer phytonutrients as berries

groundbreaking examples of food synergy: discover how tomatoes and broccoli fight cancer more effectively when eaten together

revised guidelines for cell phone use: find out what precautionary measures are advised, based on a new long-term study

new research on the anticancer mind: understand how the mind-body balance can slow cancer growth

Drawing on his own experience as both a doctor and a patient, Dr. Servan-Schreiber does not dismiss conventional medicine; he shows how we can all powerfully strengthen our bodies natural defences against cancer.
