I found this book very informative, since I am a breast cancer surivor. I think very logically, like Jane A. Plant does, in trying to figure out what has caused this horrid disease. Her claim of dairy being the root cause of her breast cancer, left me feeling disappointed. I became a vegetarian at age 21, and my diet has been extremely low in dairy and high in soy products. Nonetheless, at 36 years of age I was diagnosed with breast cancer. What I really like about the book is it helped me to wonder about the possible underlying causes of my breast cancer, and what possibly I could change in my life. I liked the information on the differences between Western and Eastern Countries' diet. This helped me to look at what I can do differently in my diet. For me, it may not be the dairy aspect, but maybe the lack of fish which helps to keep a certain ratio of omega 3/omega 6 in our bodies. Still, I think the book is valuable for breast cancer patients/survivors to read. For some with breast cancer, maybe the elimination of dairy and increase of soy is the cure. It worked for her.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is a very enlightening look at cancer from a natural holistic approach. A very easy read that makes more sense than barbaric chemotherapy treatments. I am glad that my wife and found this book after our diagnosis of breast cancer. This has more answers than the two oncologists my wife and I have visited.Was this review helpful?

This book is a must-read for anyone who has dealt with or is dealing with breast cancer. It may not be the answer to everyone's situation, but it contains very sound research and very sound nutritional advice. I wish that I had found and read 'Your Life...' much sooner (but it had not yet been written when I first needed it!). It's super to see it offered--finally!--in the U.S. Dr. Plant is offering much hope to us all. Buy this book: you will not be sorry!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
