A wonderful and highly informative book on cancer and nutrition. 2 Oct. 2013
By Joseph J. Truncale - Published on
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Even though at this moment in time I only have a pre-cancer medical issue, I thought this book would offer some insight into the type of nutrition requirements which would help to avoid further problems. I found this book to be absolutely fantastic and it has a lot of important and highly effective information anyone can benefit from by reading this volume. Do not be fooled by the title (Cancer Nutrition & Recipes for Dummies by Maurie Markman, MD, Carolyn Lammersfeld, RD, and Christina Torester Loguidice), you do not have to be a dummy to benefit from this book. In fact, the information is presented in such a way that anyone with some degree of intelligence can easily understand the vast amount of material this book throws out to readers. I have read several of the "For Dummies" series and found them to be easy to read and understand. This "For Dummies" series has a formula that really works for passing on important information on a wide variety of topics.

This book is organized into five well-researched and detailed sections. Part one covers "Getting Started with Cancer Nutrition." This section explains the various types of cancer, the treatments, side effects, and the role of nutrition in fighting cancer. Section two focuses on "The Importance of What You Eat and How you prepare it." This section goes into what is the "Clean Eating" philosophy. This deals with explaining the cancer-fighting foods and how to cook for best results. Part three offers some fantastic "Wholesome Recipes" to combat cancer. Part four covers "Staying Strong for the Long Haul." The areas dealt with in this section includes "Making conscious lifestyle changes and helping the one you love." The final section is called "The Part of Tens." It is in this section that it offers some very practical advice. They are: "Ten ways to revive your appetite and enjoy food again" and "Ten ways to prevent and fight off colds and other infections."

In conclusion, this book would appeal to just about anyone who desires to understand and deal with cancer or other similar medical issues with themselves or a loved one. The information is practical, easy to understand and well-researched. A very good read.

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Heart: An old warrior's poetic tribute)

Not Just For Dummies 1 Sept. 2013
By Lisa M - Published on
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I ordered this book for my sister, who is undergoing chemo for her recently diagnosed stage 2 breast cancer.
Based on the information provided on the product page, it sounded like it would be a good aid for her considering all the things her doctors are telling her to eat and not eat. It's a lot of information to absorb and I felt a guide like this would be good to reference back to on occasion.

As far as information goes, this book is filled with lots of easy to read suggestions on dealing with subjects such as unintended weight loss, reviving the appetite, nausea and choosing which foods should be avoided during treatment. It also includes recipes and food preparation ideas.

It is very positive, helpful and ultimately encouraging for someone undergoing treatment for cancer.

Food for thought 18 Sept. 2013
By C.E. - Published on
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Struggling with cancer is terrible. I know, I've been there. Having come through the journey relatively unscathed, I am bound a determined to NEVER get it again, and to protect my family as much as possible. That is why I picked up this book. And it is great!

I like how cancer is explained in great detail with good effect and in an approachable way- there are still many myths surrounding cancer and many people need a basic primer on what it is and what it is not. I appreciate that the book does not take a "only food will cure you" approach that some take- not that there isn't room for that in the cancer treatment spectrum. I am grateful that the book offers normal foods, normal spices, and normal recipes that once can eat and prepare in order to boost the power of nutrition.

The information is clear, it is accurate, and it is presented in a very accessible format (as are all the "Dummies" books) while remaining relevant and powerful as well. Besides the recipes are great too and the shopping advice and food labels section is wonderful as well. After reading that and applying it a bit more, I now have my kids reading food labels too and marking stuff as "Cancer killers" and "Cancer feeders." Slightly morbid, I know, but it makes grocery shopping more fun!

Invaluable guide, especially for newly diagnosed cancer patients 24 Oct. 2013
By Jaylia3 - Published on
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This would be a wonderful book for someone who has been recently diagnosed with cancer and so needs to understand the various forms of the disease and its treatments, but anyone who has a loved one with cancer or who wants to eat in a way to reduce cancer risk will find a lot of helpful advice here too. The first half of the book is informational, and the second half has recipes, many illustrated with beautiful, appetite inducing color photos. The recipes are delicious as well as healthful, but as someone who has gone through the treatment process twice, the thorough and clearly written sections on how to deal with side effects are what will be most valuable to patients who are just starting the process of dealing with the disease.

An amazingly comprehensive book 7 Nov. 2013
By Neal Reynolds - Published on
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is easily one of the best and one of the most valuable books designated "for dummies". The book opens with basic information on types of cancer and its treatment. It then zeroes in on the importance of nutrition in combatting and treating cancer. Especially notable is that not only the food products but also the preparation and cooking are covered. A large range of recipes are included and these are tasty sounding enough that non-cancer patients will certainly be using them.

This is a book clearly written enough that younger family members assisting in caring for a cancer patient will also gain the information they need. Needlesws to say, this is extremely highly recommended.
