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.

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.

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!
