This book was one of the first books I read on Cancer which I found to be extremely helpful.

The book is well-structured giving concise and coherent information. For those of you who have received devasting news about Cancer and are trying to find out about it, then this book is a must read.

The First Section explains in detail how your body works, what Cancer is, how it begins and how minerals etc balance the body and fight against Cancer.

The Second Section explains what type of side effects you may experience during your treatment and how your body reacts to the treatment and suggests practical ways to combat them.

The Third Section suggests how eating the right foods can provide maximum benefits for combatting Cancer and the side effects of your treatment and provides solutions to dealing with Underweight/Overweight problems during treatment. This book provides meal suggestions and a comprehensive list of which types of foods are essential to eat and avoid. These are foods which are easy to buy and are not overly expensive. It's also very easy to incorporate into your daily diet.

Overall the book provides a greater understanding of the body and how the right Nutrition can aid the body to fight against Cancer.

Before I read this book I felt as the world had just collapsed on top of me and I had so many questions and fears. However, after reading this book I had a clearer picture of how to move on in a more positive approach.

I give this book 5 stars as I truely believe that this book is essential for anyone with Cancer.

Having found out I had breast cancer three weeks ago I turned to Amazon to find some books to help me get through it. It is a well know fact that cancer is an opportunist parasite that attacks when you are at your weakest. It is thought that mutant cancer cells attempt to grow in most of us at some point but if you have a good strong immune system performing the way it should, your body kills them before they get a chance to make a home for themselves. Unfortunately, we all have times when our immune system is low and for me I believe it was down to a recent stressful time during which I had my third child. I knew that the best weapons I could have to compliment the medical treatments and give the best possibility of getting through this and winning was to strengthen my immune system so I bought this book along with a couple of others.

First of all the book gives a great indepth description of what cancer is, how is grows, spreads and how it can be treated. Although indepth, it is not too medically intensive that your average cancer sufferer is going to be left with their head spinning, it is written in a very readable way for any layman to understand.

Secondly, it goes into great detail about how various vitamins and minerals (both in foods and in supplements) work in our immune system and how they can help you in your cancer battle.

Lastly, it has an overview of explanations of how chemotherapy etc will affect your health, side effects and what to expect and how your diet can be adjusted to counteract or minimise these effects and stay strong.

I felt this book did not suit the British market. It was written by an Ameican for U.S. A. audience. Too much of the book did not refer to the title but an explanation of cancer. The food advice was obviously strongly biased towards U.S attitudes, customs and availability i their supermarkets.

Good book, shame about the negative name. Might have been better to call it "what to eat if you've had cancer" as most people will be using the advice along with or after conventional treatment. I found the advice about nutrition targeted just right for someone with little nutritional knowledge. Worth having if you have been diagnosed with cancer or have undergone treatment.

I bought this book when I was diagnosed with cancer. I thought this book was easy to read and not full of medical jargon. After reading this book I changed some areas of my diet and felt the benefits while I was undergoing treatment. This book made me think differently about the foods we eat. I would recommend this book to anyone who is diagnosed with cancer or undergoing treatment.
