    This book was written by Dr Richard Beliveau and Dr Denis Gringras cancer researchers According to the authors, one of the risk factors for cancer is poor diet up to 30% , that is, about one third of all cancers may be linked to diet They talk about what research exists that shows eating certain foods help fight cancer The authors start with explaining two basic ideas of how cancer works 1 Apoptosis Cancer cells don t commit suicide when defective, nor respond to calls to do so by th This book was written by Dr Richard Beliveau and Dr Denis Gringras cancer researchers According to the authors, one of the risk factors for cancer is poor diet up to 30% , that is, about one third of all cancers may be linked to diet They talk about what research exists that shows eating certain foods help fight cancer The authors start with explaining two basic ideas of how cancer works 1 Apoptosis Cancer cells don t commit suicide when defective, nor respond to calls to do so by the community of cells surrounding it, which is what normal cells are programmed to do Cancer cells continue to replicate.2 Angiogenesis Cancer cells encourage a blood supply to develop such that the tumour grows.In the book the authors discuss how different foods help promote cancer cell death and or help starve cancer cells of their blood supply as the cancer cells go through the stages of development into a tumour and then metastasis The book is simple and well organised, and includes a summary at the end of each chapter about the discussion There are numerous tables and references for detailed follow up.The authors discuss the research that link certain foods that affect how cancer cells work, for example, there may be molecules present in some foods that act like an on off switch that turns the switch off thereby blocking the disease from progressing Research compares cancers by location linking diet of those peoples to reduced rates of some cancers They talk about phytochemicals an anticancer component of fruits and vegetables and regular consumption is a strong weapon against the prevention of cancer.They also use the term neutraceuticals , a generic term describing nutrition that is also pharmacolgical.The list of fantastic foods that the book talks about are listed below, and they describe what and how the properties of these foods help with cancer prevention.Cruciferous vegetables cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower Garlic and onionSoyTumericGreen TeaBerriesOmega 3TomatoesWineChocolateI found this to be very informative and eye opening It was refreshing to find one place to help link the foods to the actions that they support against cancer I also wanted to raise the issue about whether or not soy is good Many people wonder about whether they should use soy or not, and they weigh in on that too.Definitely a good read for anyone wanting to be proactive about their cancer diet

    Foods that Fight Cancer Preventing Cancer through Diet takes an action based position on preventing cancer Re examining our misconceptions about the causes of cancer is important, since it motivates us to change our defeatist approach to the disease B liveau Gingras, 20 The book is designed reasonably well and presents mostly good information, first going over the basics of cancer and then going over the authors recommendations of foods you should eat to prevent cancer.However, I had Foods that Fight Cancer Preventing Cancer through Diet takes an action based position on preventing cancer Re examining our misconceptions about the causes of cancer is important, since it motivates us to change our defeatist approach to the disease B liveau Gingras, 20 The book is designed reasonably well and presents mostly good information, first going over the basics of cancer and then going over the authors recommendations of foods you should eat to prevent cancer.However, I had a few issues with some of the information like in other books It s important to note both authors are PhDs, not medical doctors Below I will go over the main issues, so if you read this book, most of it is good and helpful but you need to take the other parts with a grain of salt.Good things Page at the end of each chapter summarizing main points Positive approach that you can take control of your own health and improve your circumstancesBad things Misinformation Questionable assumptionsTHE BIG ISSUESArguments bent over backwards to conform to what the authors wanted to say, even if it wasn t true.Actual Western diet issues, of why we get cancer in the first place, were barely addressed No mention of sugar, dairy or wheat being bad in any way Meat was briefly mentioned at the end but fish was still recommended regardless of mercury and other risks Sugary fruit juices, desserts, bread and pastas were recommended also.Soy being promoted as an anti cancer food.Soy is usually genetically modified, doused in carcinogenic pesticides like glyphosate, and in Western society is rarely eaten fermented the way the book describes It also has questionable effects to do with estrogen and it definitely should not be touted as a 100% safe wondrous health food Even now, the consumption of soy and products derived from it are an integral part of the culinary traditions of Asian countries B liveau Gingras, 120 First of all, you guys authors should know something about geography ASIA is a whole continent And soy doesn t play an integral role in food from Asian countries, SOME Asian countries eat soy and to others it is irrelevant W hile for female Japanese immigrants to the United States the risk of getting breast cancer is about the same as for American born women, it has been clearly shown that this risk is much lower when these women emigrate later in life In other words, the longer these women have been in contact with a kind of diet where soy plays a large role, the lower their risk of developing breast cancer will be later on B liveau Gingras, 124 Yes, because soy being in the diet is the ONLY, SINGLE REASON they would have a lower risk coming later in life It s not because their native Japanese diet didn t include the processed food crap that we have in our Western diets, is it Despite all of the contradictory data reported on this subject in recent years, results recently obtained clearly show that this controversy is baseless and that eating soy is completely safe B liveau Gingras, 124 Yes, ignore any contradictory studies, because ONE, NEW study said it s safe Woo hoo Just write off all those other studies, they re all wrong and BASELESS Ha ha No This is an example of the authors being completely black and white, after they casually mention a disagreeing viewpoint they quickly destroy it with strong language that you re just supposed to believe T here is no doubt that soy is not harmful to women s health, whether they are pre or postmenopausal, as attested to by the low cancer rates in countries where this food is consumed B liveau Gingras, 127 Right, because again, the only variable that could possibly make those countries have lower cancer rates is that they eat soy Sounds reasonable Aha No.Write off of pesticidesIncorrect informationFISH First, recommends eating two or three servings of fatty fish into your weekly diet 180 Then says, It is obviously a shame that some fish contain tiny amounts of various toxic substances, but remember that in such small quantities the benefits fish provides are far greater than the negative effects of these substances B liveau Gingras, 180 Eating fish three times a week isn t such small quantities Also, most fish, not some, contain toxic substances like mercury and PCBs Yes, Omega 3 is really important But don t minimize the bad effects of the toxins, or how they re farmed and how polluted the water is, and all the other problems with fish farming.The bad, the inconsistent and the annoyingBad advice Blueberries and other berries can be frozen and eaten year round, added to yogurt, ice cream or desserts B liveau Gingras, 169 Sugary dairy, sugary dairy and sugary desserts Sounds like a great thing to eat to be healthy Why not just suggest eating them raw, or in a fruit salad, or something ACTUALLY healthy like that Ugh.Inconsistent Obviously, these statistics do not prove that the differences are connected to the role played by tomatoes in the diet Asians do not eat tomatoes and are not especially affected by this disease B liveau Gingras, 186 187 Why do they suddenly realize that eating one food doesn t determine if that s the reason why a population has low cancer rates But other times they use the exact type of statistics but claim that the reason the cancer rates are lower is because of the one food Annoying Authors talk about in the conclusion Middle Eastern people using legumes, Asian cooking offering many possible ways to use soy in every form 248 , Mediterranean and Japanese cuisines using fish, Italians and Spanish using tomatoes, and then or Indian cooking for various curries 248 Are you serious Indian cooking is a POWERHOUSE of nutrients and health right there, and all that s mentioned is various curries This book talked about how amazing turmeric is which it really is , but that s not mentioned There are some of the cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower used, spices mentioned, garlic, onions, green tea, etc This book focused on Asian being Japanese, Mediterranean and European cooking mostly, when it should have included cuisines like Indian.Negative myths associated with fruits and vegetablesWhile the goal here is to convince you to eatfruits veggies which is admirable of course , the authors go way overboard and start spouting L I E S Myth 1 Fruits and vegetables contain pesticides that cause cancer False Pesticides remaining on fruits and vegetables are only found in trace amounts, and no study has been able to establish a link between these residues and cancer B liveau Gingras, 240 Truth 1 Fruits and vegetables have pesticides sprayed on them that can cause cancer This doesn t mean you should avoid them It just means you should be aware Buying organic means less pesticide residue, and to be 100% sure there are no pesticides, grow whatever you can on your own California lists glyphosate, a common pesticide sprayed on crops GMOs especially , as a carcinogen Obviously the authors statement was not at all well researched considering there are studies linking pesticides to cancer Myth 2 Fruits and vegetables are the product of genetic engineering, and genetically modified organisms GMOs are harmful to health False As for the portion of foods that really are GMOs, no study has yet established any link to cancer whatsoever The problem with GMOs is above all environmental, and we share the concern of those who oppose them Truth 2 Yes, only certain foods are GE However, GMOs cannot be ruled out as being 100% safe and not harmful to health First of all, there is a study linking GMOs to cancer, that was done on mice, but it was later retracted due to Big Agri politics and probably something to do with Monsanto s unremitting protection of themselves and their products Secondly, there are NO STUDIES AT ALL documenting long term effect of GMOs on humans because, guess what there aren t many humans wanting to participate in those studies And the big corporations like Monsanto don t WANT those studies, because if something they don t like comes up, it s going to hurt their profits I am glad they recognize there are issues with GMOs THANKS but it s not limited to environmental, it s an ethical, nutritional, agricultural, juridical, consumer rights issue.I would recommend toAs long as it is acknowledged that there are incidences of bad information in this book but the rest is good, I would recommend to people especially people who don t know too much who are interested in eating healthier, preventing cancer and learningabout it This book is a reasonably short read and if you skip the history of each food they mention the history of each one of course you can get it done quickly

    I love this book, because the very last chapter quotes variety is the spice of life , and things like moderation , which I am such a believer in, especially when it comes to food I bought this book because in May 2010 my sister who was 22 years old was diagnosed with Leukaemia It turned our family upside down let alone my sister s life and I didn t know how to help I ve always believed that diet is important in life, possibly with constant brain washing from my father who is very he I love this book, because the very last chapter quotes variety is the spice of life , and things like moderation , which I am such a believer in, especially when it comes to food I bought this book because in May 2010 my sister who was 22 years old was diagnosed with Leukaemia It turned our family upside down let alone my sister s life and I didn t know how to help I ve always believed that diet is important in life, possibly with constant brain washing from my father who is very health conscious, that what goes in must come out i.e you can t feed kids crap processed foods and then complain they have behavioural issues You can t eat a packet of biscuits a day and not expect to put on weight , and wanted to see if food could help with her fight against cancer.When I say diet, I don t mean dieting to lose weight, I mean, what we eat day to day, every day, for the rest of our lives Our diet Like a cow s diet is grass, humans should have a balanced diet I m not a believer in dieting , in Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, Atkins those are the ones that stick in my mind, but I m sure there areI believe in everything in moderation and exercise which the book also endorses This book is not telling you to become a vegan, or vegetarian, it s emphasising the importance of a well balanced diet made up of whole foods, cooking recipes from scratch, not turning to industrially prepared and processed foods that have lost all their goodness and contain too much fat, salt and sugar The odd treat, to feed our craving for foods rich in fat and sugar is okay occasionally but generally, to eat healthily and to include the foods they ve researched plus all other fruit and vegetables , proven to contain anti cancer molecules, into your diet Red wine and good quality dark chocolate are included in this list The first chapter is shocking Why are people afraid of flying when they are at greater risk of dying of cancer You have a 1 in 3 chance of dying from cancer, where as there is a 1 in 3,000,000 chance of dying in a plane crash.The last section looks at supplements and how it s the actual food that helps prevent cancer I particularly liked this You cannot eat just anything and then get off the hook by taking a pill.Good point There isto fruit and vegetables than their vitamins This book does have some science speak to it it s written by scientists , but it is perfectly understandable, as long as you don t have to try and read the big words out loud I found it fascinating, the history of some of the food and it s origins brilliantly researched book If you are interested in diet and health generally, this is a book for you If you are in remission from cancer in any shape or form it describes leukaemia as a liquid tumour and want to increase every possible chance to prevent the disease s recurrence , this is a book for you If you re currently fighting cancer, this is a book for you It might just help Surely, it s worth the try I think everybody should read this book, whether you re afraid of cancer or not it s an eye opener to the Western world and its very poor diet n.b Text in quote marks have been taken from the book

    An amazing book comprehensive, well researched, beautiful pictures and a technical content that supports the suggestions for eating with a purpose, without losing the reader in the process.One huge takeaway drink three cups of Japanese green tea every day What I find difficult to believe is that the book I ve just read was published in 2006 eleven years ago How come I didn t know about the possibility of diet as a preventative measure for cancer In the UK the message is just 5 a day so An amazing book comprehensive, well researched, beautiful pictures and a technical content that supports the suggestions for eating with a purpose, without losing the reader in the process.One huge takeaway drink three cups of Japanese green tea every day What I find difficult to believe is that the book I ve just read was published in 2006 eleven years ago How come I didn t know about the possibility of diet as a preventative measure for cancer In the UK the message is just 5 a day so simplistic I knew about vitamins and antioxidants but hey, the stuff that fights cancer is called by other names, e.g phytochemicals I guess the majority of people who are interested in this are either cancer patients themselves or have someone they care about with cancer It needs to be read by the healthy at the moment I can t recommend this book enough I bought it second hand and the poor binding means many pages are loose I would buy a new updated edition Interestingly, I came about this book from David Servan Schreiber s brilliant book Anti Cancer In it he mentions a man who survived for 5 years after being given three months and this is attributed by the man s wife cooking him food following a diet by Richard Beliveau He had been successful with mice and attempted to devise a diet that would be adapted to the human weight This was no quack offering false hope this was a doubting scientist he did not say his diet would work for a human and a desperate man prepared to give anything a try I wish there wasknown, universally about this type of work

    A bit science y in places, but overall an excellent, interesting read about the relationship between food and cancer The authors really break down each section, explaining how cancer develops and in turn how the different cancer fighting properties of the foods affect it An easy read I read through the whole book in a little less than two hours, including most of the science y parts and have come away feeling like I can actually incorporate the knowledge into my daily lifestyle.
