THE CANCER SURVIVOR'S GUIDE
Foods That Help You Fight Back!
Researchers have discovered that certain diet patterns seem to have a major effect in both preventing the disease from occurring and helping people diagnosed with cancer to live longer, healthier lives. Written by nutrition researcher Neal Barnard, M.D., president of The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and The Cancer Project, and nutritionist Jennifer K. Reilly, R.D., the guide is based on research showing that diet changes can not only reduce the risk of developing cancer, they can also improve survival. Readers learn how foods influence hormones that fuel cancer and how a dietary change to a low-fat, plant-based diet can be beneficial to anyone diagnosed with cancer.
Each section describes specific nutrients and how they work in your body, which foods are the best sources for these nutrients, and simple, practical steps to take to increase consumption of these foods. Dozens of delicious, easy recipes are provided to help you plan nutritious meals. Also included is a comprehensive list of references and resources to help you keep up with the changing information on diet and cancer.
