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.
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.Read more ›

Not what I expected, reads like a science class, its a bit dry,

recipes, and the odd picture.
