Publisher's Summary

The revolutionary New York Times best seller about powerful lifestyle changes that can fight and prevent cancer - an integrative approach based on the latest research.

An international phenomenon, Anticancer has been a long-running best seller in the US since Viking first published it in fall 2008. Now, this updated edition draws on the most recent clinical studies and offers more tips on how people living with cancer can fight it and how healthy people can prevent it. The new edition of Anticancer includes: 

  • More benefits of anticancer foods, including new alternatives to sugar and cautions about some that are now on the market 
  • New information about how vitamin D strengthens the immune system 
  • Warnings about common food contaminants that have recently been proven to contribute to cancer progression 
  • A new chapter on mind-body approaches to stress reduction, with recent studies that show how our reactions to stress can interfere with natural defenses and how friendships can support healing in ways never before understood 
  • A groundbreaking study showing that lifestyle modification, as originally proposed in Anticancer, reduces mortality for breast cancer by an astounding 68 percent after completion of treatment 
  • New supporting evidence for the entire Anticancer program

Critic Reviews

“A common-sense blueprint for healthy living.” (Chicago Tribune)

“Fills an important gap in our knowledge of how patients can contribute to their own care by supplementing conventional medical treatment. I recommend this book to anyone interested in preventive medicine and integrated, complementary approaches to patient care.” (John Mendelsohn, MD, president, MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Texas) 

“Resonating with cancer support communities...and recommended nationwide on internet message boards.” (Los Angeles Times

Great Book - No PDF :(

Great content but with all the info provided it's disappointing not to have a pdf. Especially with content as important as cancer. SMH.

Great effort to empower cancer patients and those who would avoid cancer!

Very comprehensive review and documentation of the knowledge base in this important holistic field. The data is limited but compelling and perhaps a common sense approach is the most appealing. I am a cancer physician with an established interest in natural healing methods yet I still learned new pearls from this book. Moreover, almost all of it is truly”timeless” and cannot go “out of date”.

We all must read this book!!

This is a silence illness that can kill you. The real problem is that every person has heard from it but unfortunately only few are doing something to preventing it. A quality life depends in how responsibly our actions are.

Hope in a hopeless diagnosis

This book confirms a lot of information I knew and educates me on more with the research. I feel EVERYONE should at least hear this information and make the best decisions for their health and the health of their families.
