Fantascically informative and helpful book !
on 16 May 2009
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 !
