Cancer Free: The Comprehensive Cancer Prevention Program

Front Cover
"In plain English, Cancer Free lays out the building blocks of an effective prevention program, summarizing the research evidence and outlining simple, easy-to-implement methods of assessing risk, optimizing diet, adopting a healthy lifestyle, reducing exposure to environmental carcinogens and harnessing the powers of the mind." "Next the authors show how to assemble the building blocks into a concrete plan for protecting against the most common cancers. Self-assessment charts allow you to fine-tune your risk profile and to shape a sensible and complete prevention plan. Detailed guidelines for and explanations of screening procedures for each cancer will help you to make the best use of medical resources. And the real-life experiences included in each chapter provide tips for making your program a daily practice, and inspiration for keeping it that way."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
