What Leading Experts Are Saying
âMost of us do our best to avoid cancer - or at least we do our best to avoid talking about it. And that's understandable. The fact that one in two American men and one in three women will be diagnosed with the disease at some point in their lives is enough to inspire some combination of denial and dread in even the bravest of hearts. Fortunately, the authors of this book aren't the least bit apprehensive about the topic. They've combined their expertise in family medicine and epidemiology to create a commonsense set of guidelines for cancer prevention. No aggressive fingerpointing here, just sensible advice: Wash new sheets to remove formaldehyde resin; take off your shoes indoors tom keep lawn chemicals off the floor; avoid the sun during its strongest hours of the day. Chapters are organized to explain the relationship between cancer and environment, diet, infections and medications. There are list of common carcinogens, strategies for how to avoid them, and a handful of great recipes with high fiber and antioxidant content, plus citations for further reading on subjects like carcinogens and dry-cleaning or the safety of sunscreen. A handy resource for keeping your environment free of unnecessary toxins, and a great way to arm yourself with practical, empowering information that will help give you and your loved ones the health-supporting advantages you all deserve.â
