Overview

The information contained in BCN is both scientifically backed with references and clinically proven in the hospital with patients. This information helps cancer patients to improve quality and quantity of life. BCN had been translated into Japanese, Chinese and Korean. In response to the requests from tired cancer patients who said they needed an audio version of the book to get started, there is now a 78 minute audio CD included in the back cover of the book. BCN is now in its 3rd major revised version, with over 150,000 copies in 9 years in print. BCN was "bestseller" in its category in 1999 on Amazon.com, the world1s largest bookstore. A well-nourished cancer patient can better manage and beat the disease. The 32 year "war on cancer" has cost $50 billion in government research with a resulting increase in the incidence and death rate from cancer. Chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery can temporarily reduce tumor burden, but these therapies do not change the underlying causes of the disease. Comprehensive cancer treatment must include an aggressive nutrition component, which can increase life expectancy by 12 to 21 fold along with better chances for complete remission. In this major revision of the bestseller, Dr. Patrick Quillin shares his extensive and very practical experience in helping hundreds of cancer patients with a nutrition program of diet and supplements, including:
• nutrients make chemo and radiation more toxic to the cancer and less damaging to the patient
• starving the cancer by controlling blood glucose through diet and supplements
• common vegetables, herbs, and seasonings that have powerful anti-cancer activity
• completely new section of delicious recipes that can be made with foods from your grocery store
• how to find the underlying causes of your cancer
• newly updated section on effective and non-toxic approaches to medically reducing cancer burden
• newly updated section listing nutritionally-oriented

    Prevention

    After my father's cancer, I bought this book to learn what food could do to keep me from going through what he experienced. I started eating what this book recommends and immediately started losing weight and feeling better. The change in my diet was a big one but was well worth the results. I used to run and work out with little visible change to my body. Now i work out less and see the change I have been looking for forever. Kansas University, which recommends this book and whose methods have made my father's cancer almost completely disappear, has been doing amazing things for cancer patients. My personal experience with this book tells me that they are on to something here.

    I threw this book away

    This book does not contain any easy-to-follow guidelines or food plans, which is what I was looking for because I was in a panic after being diagnosed with cancer. This book was just too scientific for me to deal with. But I am not dumb, I am a college-educated woman.

    Excellent Nutrition and anti-cancer resource

    This book provides an in-depth look at your immune system and how what you eat effects your bodies ability to fight off disease. While it focuses on cancer, it has much broader applicability to health in general.
