Overview

 • Clear information on why vitamins and micronutrients are essential to prevent cancer and to recover from it.

 • Includes the latest studies from the field of dietary cancer prevention.

•  Provides a simple program of nutritional supplements that will improve your odds of avoiding cancer.

• Written by the nation's leading expert on vitamins and cancer research.

The evidence is in and it is overwhelming: the micronutrients found in certain foods and supplements can have a positive and powerful effect in the battle to prevent cancer. For those with cancer, these same micronutrients can enhance the beneficial effects of conventional cancer treatments, reduce the toxic side effects of those treatments, and improve the long-term prognosis. Fight Cancer with Vitamins and Supplements explains the latest studies in this cutting-edge field, gives you a simple nutritional program to follow, and separates the facts from the myths on the most promising anticancer compounds, including the antioxidants coenzyme-Q10 and lipoic acid and herbs such as green tea and garlic. It explains everything from the surprising role of selenium in cancer prevention to the reason why many vitamins in foods are destroyed during storage. It also shows how the same simple program recommended for preventing cancer is equally effective in preventing heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease.
