It is worthy of the finest in nighttime television infomercials, where among all the financial advisers, kitchen gadget guys and acne specialists is one with a story so personal, heartfelt and sensible that you suddenly need exactly what he has to sell. Not that Dr. Servan-Schreiber is peddling a product other than his book. Rather, it is a way of life he wants you to buy into, a guide to staying cancer-free or, if he has reached you too late, fighting off your cancer by paying careful attention to what you eat and how you behave. Like all the best pitchmen, he offers his own story of redemption as testament he once was lost but now is found, was blind but now he sees.

Look Inside. Mar 12, Minutes Buy. He soon found himself on a decades-long journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration and, finally, a new view of health.
Drawing on the latest research in integrative medicine that blends conventional and alternative approaches, Servan-Schreiber concisely explains what makes cancer cells thrive, what inhibits them, and how we can empower ourselves to prevent their growth. His advice details how to develop a science-based anticancer diet and the small changes that can make a big difference ; how to reap the benefits of exercise, yoga, and meditation; which toxic, unsafe products to replace in your home; and how to stave off the effects of helplessness and unhealed wounds to regain balance.
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.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in preventive medicine and integrated, complementary approaches to patient care. It is full of passion. Everybody should read this book and enact its simple but potentially lifesaving recommendations.
