Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Breast cancer currently is the leading cancer killer among women, says family practitioner Eades, and heredity is the strongest risk factor in developing this disease. In this fact-filled yet compassionate study, Eades contends that all women, especially the genetically prone, can dramatically reduce their danger by controlling environmental risk factors and receiving regular screenings. The author explains how to assess hereditary risks by creating a family genogram and stresses that premenopausal cancer has a much stronger genetic link than later-life cancer. She provides concrete advice on evaluating and modifying factors such as diet, alcohol and smoking (while noting that research results in this area often conflict). Readers will learn self-examination techniques, as well as what to expect from mammograms and xeromammograms. For those who have cancer or know someone who does, there is a lode of information on mastectomies, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, breast reconstruction and experimental treatments. Throughout, the author emphasizes the power of preventive and curative thinking. This work includes an excellent resource guide and glossary. This is one of the first books in the If It Runs in Your Family series. (Mar.)
Library Journal
These trade paperbacks are the first two in a new series of preventative medicine handbooks exploring familial risk for frequently inherited diseases. Breast Cancer seeks to educate and reassure women with a family history of the disease. In addition to minimizing risk factors, it advocates early detection and treatment. Heart Disease covers familiar ground: prevention by not smoking, proper diet and exercise, modern methods of treatment, and sources of information. Similar, fuller treatments are found in Neil Gordon and Larry Gibbons's The Cooper Clinic Cardiac Rehabilitation Program ( LJ 4/1/90), Herman Hellerstein and Paul Perry's Healing Your Heart ( LJ 7/90), and Edward Frohlich and Genell Subak-Sharpe's Take Heart: Cut Your Inherited Risks of Heart Disease ( LJ 9/15/90). While probably useful as additions to consumer health collections, these books would find better use in doctors' waiting rooms and similar locations.-- Eleanor Maass, Maass Associates, New Milford, Pa.
