2014: 13th Jan.
I wrote the review below in 2008, but feel I should now post an update.

After doing so well at the time of that review (three years after my dianosis in 2005), to actually be here and still doing well after NINE years has exceeded all my hopes.

Every day I count myself so lucky that I found Prof Jane Plant and her work so soon.
Diet plus conventional treatment has worked marvellously for me, and if I hadn't found and followed The Plant Programme I feel absolutely certain I wouldn't be here today.

I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in April 2005. My prognosis was very bleak, an inoperable T4 tumour, and I was expected to have only a few years of life left.
However, within a week of that shocking news, I discovered the work of Prof.Jane Plant while researching this illness.

I am convinced that doing so saved my life. On hearing of her own successful fight against breast cancer I ordered her book, "Your Life In Your Hands" from Amazon.

Her thorough research and deep scientific knowledge shone out at me like a beacon and I immediately changed my diet and began following her recommendations to fight cancer.

The next week I bought "Prostate Cancer: Understand, Prevent, Overcome", and that book became my 'bible'.

I strictly adhered to the principles of Jane's strategy for battling prostate cancer, and my whole diet became based on the information and recipes I found in her other excellent book "The Plant Programme".

I have waited 3 years to feel confident enough to write this review, because now, after combining my oncologist's conventional medical treatment plan of hormone therapy and radiothery alongside my living by The Jane Plant diet, I have had a truly remarkable outcome.

My partner was dagnosed with porstate cancer in August 2008, tis book was recomended by members of the prostate cancer charity message boards.
As it was so highly recomended I bought it and was stunned by the information inside, I was even more stunned by what some of the foods we have been told are essenial for good health over the years actually does to us!

I suffer from three different auto-immune conditions and realised how much changing my diet could help me, thought it worth a try as my rheumatologist and doctors are having problems getting my conditions under control. The increased cancer risk factors from my conditions, and at least two of the drugs from the cocktail of drugs I have to take, combined with the information in this book convinced me that I needed to change my diet. Diet was the one risk factor that I could control so I became Vegan about a month ago. It's the best thing I have done in a long time ! my IBS isn't as bad, I'm not bloated and I don't feel as lethargic as much of the time.

I would urge anyone who is concerned about the risk of developing cancer to read any of Prof. Jane Plants books !

I have been diagnosed Prostate Cancer, caught in the early stages (T1 at age 58) and have had Brachytherapy, now looking for what can I do for the best to try to ensure best outcome. So bought this book and despite below comments recommend as it has a wealth of information on the subject. It is a very heavy read, several times I nearly abandoned it but glad I persevered. It is a mix of medical theory, a lot of academic references to data and studies to support Jane Plant's basic theory of "no Dairy". Without doubt she gathers a wealth of data in support of her theory, and is quite vigorous in putting down any opposing views. You would have to be an academic to follow up all her references to ensure they are quoted in context - the average person will just take these on trust and hope they are truly supportive and not just a convenient sentence or paragraph. That said her arguments are not very balanced. On the plus side, the arguments she gives are convincing and are really common sense -"milk and milk products, are stacked with hormones to support the baby.....Prostate Cancer is a hormone dependant Cancer" and "what other animal drinks another animal's milk for its whole life, not just the baby stage?" and "Nations (ie China) that do not use milk in their diet have low incidences of "hormone dependant cancers" - prostate, breast, ovarian etc etc." On the negative side, people do die in such countries of other cancers but she dismisses that they may be caused by the non dairy diet. One cannot help but wonder whether such a (non dairy) diet might lead to other cancers, ie stomach cancer which the Chinese do suffer from, though she easily dismisses this as probably caused by pesticides (no facts to support).Read more ›

I wouldn't recommend this for someone in their first couple of weeks into a diagnosis, I got it out of the library at that point and it had too much information, I know that sounds silly but it bamboozled me at the time. Now four months down the line having got to grips with treatment plans and terminology etc, it's a fantastic book. I've since bought the The Plant Programme and that's good too. The Plant Programme - Eating for Better Health: Recipes for Better Health I sought out these books following recommendations on the Prostate Cancer Charity messageboard - another fantastic source of support and information.
