Overview

Although Eastern and Western doctors have the same objectives in the fight against cancer, their methods of treatment are worlds apart. The Yin & Yang of Cancer bridges the information gap between these two approaches. The authors begin with a clear history of how traditional Chinese and Western medicines evolved, and how they have interacted with each other. They then provide a detailed discussion of the Chinese use of medicinal mushrooms, which could add further weapons to our own cancer-fighting arsenal.
