One out of nine women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. For too long, women have erroneously believed that there is little or nothing they can do to prevent this dread illness. Our major medical efforts are directed toward detecting and treating, rather than preventing, breast cancer.

Professor Jane Plant, one of Britain's most eminent scientists, contracted breast cancer in 1987. When orthodox medicine gave up and she was told she had only three months to live, she used her extensive scientific training and her knowledge of other cultures to find a way to survive. In her research, she was startled to find that in China breast cancer affects far fewer women than in Western countries. Plant considered there could be a dietary trigger for the illness. As Plant continued her research, she became convinced there was a casual link between consumption of dairy products and breast cancer.

In this book, Professor Plant shares the discoveries that allowed her to triumph over breast cancer. With a clear statement of the scientific principles behind her discovery, Professor Plant includes detailed suggestions, including menus and recipes, for ways to alter your diet by eliminating or reducing consumption of many suspected cancer-causing agents, especially dairy products, and replacing them with healthful alternatives.

Over 8 years ago I was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer at the age of 38. Thankfully I discovered Jane Plant's book at that time and I've been dairy free ever since. (And, I've never been healthier.)
I encourage everyone that is discussing treatment options or wants to prevent breast/prostate cancer to read her book. What have you got to lose? I've discovered there is no money to be made in telling us not to eat dairy and the industry sponored food pyramid is making us sick. The No-Dairy Breast Cancer Prevention Program is full of studies, common sense and her own experience. She gave me hope and the tools to prevent a reoccurence.
Let's challenge the American Cancer Society, the Susan G. Komen and other organizations to support cancer and nutrition research and make a real difference in our lives by placing this book in every cancer resource room.
Best health always...

Yes! I had lumps in my breasts and other hormonal problems. saw how calves are torn from their mother and both cry and cry and how this is the way it is, after all cow's milk is no longer for calves, it's for people. Calves get turned into veal, usually. Anyway, suffice it to say I went vegan on the spot 5 years ago and all my breast pain, lumps, and other strangeness went away! I am getting this book.
