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.

You are what you eat has become a saying that is now becoming truth. I have a lot of friends and family members that have recently been treated for cancer. Most of them have turned to diet to help control some of the issues associated with the disease and quite a few of them have reduced their risk and have had more positive outcome. I think this book is worth a shot!
