Michio Kushi wrote this very comprehensive macrobiotic approach to preventing and relieving cancer. Macrobiotics is all about the balancing between yin and yang foods. Kushi maintains that cancer is preventable, and that it is an indication of a diet that is out of balance. While it is clear to me that food plays a large part in preventing some forms of cancer, can macrobiotics be a significant prevention lifestyle for all forms? I am dubious about this.

Kushi devotes a separate section to each

I would think that anyone, in 2012, who is possessed of more eros than thanos, would want to pursue a cancer prevention diet.

We're all downwinders now, and there really is nowhere to hide from the biosphere.

This book came highly recommended and I was expecting something different from the book I read. Nevertheless it is interesting and informative. The authors Kushi and Jack promote a macrobiotic diet, slightly modified for seventeen different forms of cancer. They also examine environmental and human issues that might cause cancer and make suggestions for avoiding and/or eliminating them The chapters on emotion and balance were interesting and will prove instructive for readers not aware of Easter ...more

This book is a wake up call for all people. If we would only eat well, so much pain and suffering could be alleviated. Good recipes, advice and they cover several different types of cancer such as breast,pancreatic, liver, stomach, kidney, etc. You get done reading this and might want to clean up your diet!
