From Library Journal

Keane, a nutritionist, cancer survivor, and coauthor of the best-selling Juicing for Life (Avery, 1992), and Chase, a natural-health writer and nutrition educator, describe the body’s physical components and how nutrition affects physical function. They then present types of cancers and detail how the cancers insinuate themselves into body structures. The authors’ proposed nutritional therapy is designed to deny cancer the food elements it requires for growth while strengthening the body against the disease and the rigors of its treatments. Recommendations are made for nutritional supplements, food preparation, and managing the side effects of treatment. Specific diets for overweight and underweight individuals and those on chemotherapy and radiation therapy are also incorporated. Although the book is complex in subject, the authors present excellent analogies and information.  Janet M. Schneider, James A. Haley Veterans Hosp., Tampa, Fla.
