9780393088939: The Anticancer Diet: Reduce Cancer Risk Through the Foods You Eat

With the huge number of studies on nutrition and cancer available, it's impossible for a person to sort through them all to come up with practical recommendations. Now, Dr. David Khayat, a world-renowned oncologist, has done that hard work for you.

In this international bestseller, Dr. Khayat provides easy-to-follow―and often surprising―guidelines on what are now known to be the foods most likely to reduce the risk of cancer. For those of a scientific bent, he explains what cancer is and how it develops. Bringing together his own research with that of other major cancer specialists, he breaks down what the studies mean, which ones provide the most solid evidence, and how to use their results in your and your family’s diet.

Structured by the major food groups―as well as supplements, beverages, and exercise―The Anticancer Diet may surprise you by not disparaging red meat but alerting you to find out the source of your fish and suggesting sole over salmon. While highly recommending commercial pomegranate juice, it cautions people with fair hair and eyes against drinking orange juice. What stage of life a person is at will also affect what they should consume. Pregnant women, older women, men, and children may process foods differently.

With numerous easy-to-read charts and tables along with a comprehensive food list at the back of the book, this accessible, user-friendly guide helps readers realize the power in their everyday choices.

Review:

David Khayat's joy of life and positive outlook come through in this very straightforward and easy-to-read summary of cancer, foods, and recommendations. He makes it possible for us to make our own choices based on the scientific and practical information he has written in this book. One feels as if a good friend is having a conversation with you to help you understandthese very complex issues and also has your best interests at heart. I highly recommend this informative and well-referenced book about the journey we all have in life. --Sandra M. Swain, MD, medical director, Washington Cancer Institute"
