Repetitive. Plays fast and loose with much of the cited research. (I checked dozens of his citations against the originals.) Oddly, the recipes -- supposedly healthy -- involve a lot of fried food, despite his point elsewhere that cooking destroys the hard-to-come-by, and much needed, enzymes. There are FAR better books on cancer nutrition out there.

Ever wonder what goes on at Cancer Centers of America? This book may give you some clues, as the author was associated with those cancer hospitals.

His program in three steps:

1- Debulk tumors with “traditional” treatments: surgery, radiation, chemo, hyperthermia.
2- Regulate remaining cancer cells with enzymes.
3- Feed the immune system. Build resistance with nutrition.

What is meant by nutrition? “Anti-cancer” foods, especially vegetables and proteins, plus megasupplements. Vitamins, minerals, herb

This book is very repetitive and the author takes several opportunities to remind you of his 3 degrees and other various credentials. There is some useful information here but there are many other books out there that have as much or more information, are easier to read, and are more current. He recommends an omnivorous diet which may appeal to some people since most cancer books will recommend at least a vegetarian approach. The material, even in the 2005 edition, is outdated - he says that pre ...more

This book gives interesting and useful information to those suffering from cancer. The main thing I took away from it is that sugar is a prime cause of inflammation in the body and that cancer cells are attracted to it. There is an easy pull-out chart to use for reference and a CD which has the main points of the book recorded on it so that people who aren't well enough to read can listen.

The only downside I see is that there is so much information related to supplements that you would really h

I'm not sorry I read this book but I would be very cautious about implementing any major changes in my diet. I showed the book to my dietician and we discussed some questions that the book raised for me. In that way it was useful and my dietician provided me with additional information on glycemic index, and use of soy products for example. The book is not specific to any one cancer and one cannot conclude that what works for one type of cancer will work for another. Also, the patient profiles w ...more

My sister in law downloaded the Kindle version for me. Great resource to help you really understand how poorly we are eating and what healing we can begin with simple wholesome food. Definitely gave me fabulous ideas to help strengthen my body as I enter chemotherapy and hopefully to help my immune system stay strong during treatment and beyond!

This book would have gotten 5 stars if I could have easily purchased the ImmunoPower created by this author. Finding a good, tasty, broad-spectrum vitamin powder is difficult and this author's website didn't allow me to purchase the quantities required to get the discounted price. Otherwise, the information in this book is excellent. He emphasizes the need for good nutrition to fight the cancer battle AND the elimination of sugar and those foods that quickly turn to sugar once eaten.

Excellent! A must read before you do anything else to cure your cancer.

THe information in this book is a bit outdated, and the material is not organized very well (the recipes kind of hang out in the middle chapters) but there is still a fair amount of good information here.

This book is amazing well researched and is about using nutrition to enhance your traditional medicaine like chemo and radiation. It's amazing that more doctors don't use nutritional therapy.

“PATIENT PROFILE: S.R. was diagnosed at age 48 with stage 4 non-Hodgkins B-cell lymphoma. Tumor was the size of a potato and choking off blood to the intestines. Underwent chemo regimen. S.R. used nutrition supplements in spite of oncologist’s hostility to the subject. S.R. was able to work throughout chemo, travelling to trade shows, though he did lose his hair. As of 2005, S.R. is in complete remission and has learned the value of good nutrition, living more joyfully, and faith in God.” 0 likes
