Overview

Contains 75% new material, with a new recipe and meal planning section, new patient histories, new scientific studies, new helpful products, and much more information gleaned from the author's 8 years of experience with hundreds of cancer patients at a major cancer hospital.

Dr. Quillin thoroughly addresses the critical area of using nutrition to reduce the toxicity of chemo and radiation, information desperately needed by all cancer patients undergoing conventional cancer treatment. He presents a new and very candid criticism to the continued failures of conventional cancer treatment, with a global overview of other more successful and rational cancer therapies for the newly diagnosed cancer patient to consider.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This completely revised edition of a 1994 title offers up-to-date information about the human body's own "host defense mechanisms" in the war on cancer, providing a multidisciplinary approach to treatment based on scientific studies and clinical experience. Quillin, a medical professional who has published extensively, has conducted nutrition studies with hundreds of patients in formal clinical settings. He discusses conventional therapies (chemotherapy, surgery), alternative therapies (macrobiotics, herbal and vitamin therapies), and related factors (psychosocial health, drugs, tobacco, immune dysfunctions). Appendixes list treatment referral agencies, mail-order nutrition products, suggested readings, nutritionally oriented doctors in the United States and Canada, and recipes using foods known to slow tumor growth. Written in an easy-to-read style, this work is informative, but some sections seem misplaced or redundant, and charts and graphs occasionally lack an identified source and are difficult to read. Still, this useful guide to authoritative alternatives in cancer treatment would be appreciated in public library or consumer health collections.Virginia Lingle, Hershey Medical Ctr.
