 Anticancer: A New Way of Life (View larger image)

All of us have cancer cells in our bodies. But not all of us will develop cancer. This international bestseller examines what we can do every day to lower our chances of ever developing the illness, and also explains what to do to increase the chances of recovery from it. Dr David Servan-Schreiber was first confronted with cancer when he was working as a medical resident in Pittsburgh. Already a recognized pioneer in neuroscience, by his own admission David had all the arrogant and immortal confidence of a thirty-year-old over-achiever. Then he discovered he had cancer of the brain. and his life changed. Servan-Schreiber went on to research alternative medicine and founding director of the Centre of Integrative Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre. This book is the fruit of his experience in the field of cancer both as a doctor and as a patient. He alternates chapters that tell his personal story and cases he has come across, with chapters that focus on the disease and its mechanisms from a purely scientific and medical angle. He looks in particular at the relation between a body and its cancer, at the immune system, the new blood vessels necessary for cancer growth, and the roles played by environmental toxins, nutrition, emotions, and physical activity in containing cancer.
