Overview

One out of nine women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. For too long, women have erroneously believed that there is little or nothing they can do to prevent this dread illness. Our major medical efforts are directed toward detecting and treating, rather than preventing, breast cancer.

Professor Jane Plant, one of Britain's most eminent scientists, contracted breast cancer in 1987. When orthodox medicine gave up and she was told she had only three months to live, she used her extensive scientific training and her knowledge of other cultures to find a way to survive. In her research, she was startled to find that in China breast cancer affects far fewer women than in Western countries. Plant considered there could be a dietary trigger for the illness. As Plant continued her research, she became convinced there was a casual link between consumption of dairy products and breast cancer.

In this book, Professor Plant shares the discoveries that allowed her to triumph over breast cancer. With a clear statement of the scientific principles behind her discovery, Professor Plant includes detailed suggestions, including menus and recipes, for ways to alter your diet by eliminating or reducing consumption of many suspected cancer-causing agents, especially dairy products, and replacing them with healthful alternatives.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Professor Plant courageously tells a compelling and very personal story on breast cancer that is a must-read, not only for women interested in this disease but also for the scientific and medical communities, who should sit up and take notice. It is time that the long-alleged nutritional worthiness of dairy be brought up for discussion.

This important, provocative book by an impressive author cannot be ignored. Through this breathtaking personal odyssey, Jane Plant forces us all to think differently about the causes of breast cancer. Indispensable reading.

Dr. Jane Plant provides a much-needed challenge to the conventional paradigm in dealing with the epidemic of breast cancer. This authoritative, well-researched but easily read text finally provides a focus on the powerful science of disease prevention. Here are the tools allowing women the ability to reduce their risk.

[This book] should be read by every...woman wishing to avoid breast cancer and to live life to her fullest potential. The book is well documented and easy to read. Your doctor should be recommending it to you.

    Useful Information

    Dr. Plant's systematic approach to her illness and her advice for other cancer patients impressed me. I have not had cancer but I have recommended this book to cancer patients. When I recommend this book to others, I usually say 'This book took some of the 'scary' out of how I feel about cancer.'

    Got Breast Cancer?

    What surprised me the most about this well researched and personally written book is how very little attentions it has received in the US. Here is a women, a scientist, and a survivor of advanced breast cancer who has a simple and healthy approach to the prevention and healing of the most dreaded decease in America. Why is she not on Oprah? Why have American leading magazines chosen not to report on this book and other findings linking dairy consumption to breast cancer? I suspect the bottom line has to do with dollars rather than sense - advertising dollars. Having not had breast cancer myself I still found this book both moving, compelling and informative. No more milk for me! Eva Robinson
