    Informative Cancer WorkBook

    I am a researcher and feel satisfaction when I find a well rounded and informative book such as the Whole-Body Workbook for Cancer by Dan Kenner. I think this is a brilliant and positive book and have been recommending it to friends and family. I am not just recommending it to friends/family who are dealing with cancer, but to everyone, as this book teaches you how to live healthy, be conscience of what you eat, foods and chemicals to avoid, educates you on healthy herbs and vitamins to take and most importantly how to live to avoid getting cancer. This is very important information to know and I Thank you Dan Kenner with all my heart.
