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 were similar to testimonials rather than rigorous scientific studies. That said, success stories are always encouraging and this book reminds one that nutrition and attitude are valuable adjuncts to chemotherapy and radiation.
