Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
According to Keuneke, food editor of Total Health magazine, the key to healthy breasts is found in what she calls "superfoods," drawn from three culinary traditions: flax seed and oil from northern Europe, soy foods from Japan and extra virgin olive oil from the Mediterranean. Keuneke, neither a scientist nor a physician, devotes an entire chapter to an interview with nutritionist Udo Erasmus (Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill) who urges consumption of unheated oils rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. To protect against breast cancer and to aid recovery from it, she also recommends organically grown antioxidant-rich vegetables to promote a favorable hormonal balance, herbal teas to enhance the immune and lymphatic systems, special baths protective against mammography radiation, and chemical-reducing water filters for the kitchen and bath. Recipes appear throughout the text as well as in a special section featuring "breast-protective power foods," such as miso, tempeh, tofu and sea vegetables. Keuneke's approach, backed by Dr. Lendon Smith's foreword, is directed toward women who are willing to make the serious commitment to a broad life-style change. (June) (PW best book of 1998)
Library Journal
Keuneke, the food editor of Total Health magazine, has written a book advocating a nutritional plan for the prevention and healing of breast cancer. Her plan includes organic vegetables, soy, and "good oils" to provide necessary fatty acids. She discusses many nutrition topics lately in the news, such as Olestra and transfatty acids, and tells readers which advice is based on medical studies and which is her own opinion. One chapter, an interview with Udo Erasmus, author of Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill (Alive Books, 1993), seems like an advertisement for his health food products. Though recipes make up a quarter of the book, many people will have problems locating the health food-store ingredients used in them. Of interest to patrons looking for alternative health solutions; for larger health collections.Elizabeth A. Williams, HAM-Texas Medical Ctr. Lib., Houston
