Anticancer A New Way Of Life By David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD (274 pages)
Anti Cancer A New Way Of Life details a scientific program for battling cancer as seen on tv.
All of us have cancer cells in our bodies. But not all of us will develop cancer. In this book, Dr. Servan-Schreiber explains the science of cancer and the scientific proof that little changes can make a big difference. He shows the importance of what we eat and drink, avoiding toxic products, regular exercise, plus natural sunlight, relaxation and mediation techniques, and caring relationships.
Anticancer is at one the moving story of one doctor's inner and outer search for balance and a radical exposition of the roles that environment, lifestyle, and trauma play in our health. Drawing on conventional and alternative approaches, Servan-Schreiber concisely explains what makes cancer cells thrive and what inhibits them and offers empowering strategies to prevent their growth. Anticancer's synthesis of science and personal experience marks a sea change in a way we understand and confront cancer. Now enriched with the result of recent groundbreaking research, Anticancer remains a pioneering and peerless resource, an inspirational and revolutionary guite to "a new way of life."
