Front Cover
McClelland & Stewart, Sep 8, 2009 - Health & Fitness - 224 pages
A new book from the authors of Foods That Fight Cancer and Cooking with Foods That Fight Cancer, a series that has sold 375,000 copies in Canada.

Dr. Béliveau’s research has led him beyond the limits of his earlier cancer research and into a broader recognition that how we eat affects many contemporary diseases and conditions. In Eating Well, Living Well, the authors discuss how what we eat can make us sick, and show convincingly how far we have come from our optimum diet. With their trademark easy explanation of complex medicine and research, the authors discuss the impact of diet on obesity and diabetes, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. And again they show us just how easy (and pleasurable) it can be to alter our diets for optimum health. Covering a wider array of health issues and of interest to every Canadian, this book will continue the authors’ bestselling trend.
