I don't have cancer or know anyone who have cancer but this book interested me because who doesn't want to adapt a healthier diet.

This book is great as it empowers the reader with information and a way to live with good nutrition, so that we can do something in our diet, for ourselves or for others with cancer.

Sugar promotes cancer cell growth, regardless of what form it's in, and it is definitely a huge misconception to think that some forms of sugar are "healthier" than others (read "Sweet Poison: Why Sugar Makes Us Fat" by David Gillespie to understand why).

There was also a recipe involving soy, saying it was "healthy" - with no mention
