The good news is that "a well-nourished cancer patient can better
manage and beat the disease." The bad news is that we have "lost
the war on cancer." After spending over $37 billion in research at
the National Cancer Institute in the 27 year "war on cancer,"
we now have an increase in the incidence and death rate from cancer, while
5 year survival is virtually unchanged. We cannot buy a "magic bullet"
cure for cancer. But proper diet and supplements can substantially bolster
the body's ability to recover from cancer. Chemotherapy, radiation and surgery
can temporarily reduce tumor burden, but these therapies do not change the
underlying causes of the disease. Comprehensive cancer treatment must include
an aggressive nutrition component, which can increase life expectancy by
12 to 21 fold along with chances for complete remission.
In this newly updated version of the bestseller, Dr. Patrick Quillin shares his extensive and very practical experience in helping hundreds
of cancer patients with a nutrition program of diet and supplements. In
this easy-to-read book you will find such valuable tips as:
Why sugar feeds cancer, and what to do about it
How certain vegetables have extraordinary anti-cancer properties
How nutrition can make medical therapy more toxic to the cancer and
less toxic on the patient
Vitamins, minerals, herbs, fatty acids, glandulars and food extracts
that can be extremely valuable as supplements for the cancer patient
Completely new recipe section containing 3 nutritious and delicious
options: vegetarian, omnivore, and a "no work" week using ready-to-eat
foods from your grocery store
How to determine your own body type and refine dietary recommendations
to suit your individual needs
New section which details the underlying causes of cancer and how to
address these crucial problems with your health care professional
Newly updated section on effective and non-toxic approaches to medically
reducing cancer burden
**-new section listing hundreds of nutritionally-oriented doctors across
America who can help you to implement these principles in your cancer treatment
The original BEATING CANCER WITH NUTRITION became such a classic that
it has now been translated to Japanese and Chinese and is a home study continuing
education course for registered nurses (NCCE at 1-800-824-1254). The many
scientific studies supporting the use of nutrition as part of comprehensive
cancer treatment can be grouped according to the following reasons to use
1) Malnutrition. More than 40% of cancer patients actually die from malnutrition.
2) Reduce the toxicity of medical therapy. Nutrition can make medical
therapies more of a "selective toxin" against cancer.
3) Bolstering immune functions. A well-nourished immune system is able
to recognize and destroy the inevitable remaining cancer cells left after
4) Starve the cancer. Sugar feeds cancer. Proper diet and supplements
can deprive the cancer of its primary fuel.
5) Nutrients as biological response modifiers. Nutrients can fortify
the many defense systems in the body which prevent and reverse cancer everyday
in millions of people.
