All of us have cancer cells in our bodies. But not all of us will develop cancer.

When David Servan-Schreiber, a dedicated scientist and doctor, was diagnosed with brain cancer, his life changed. Confronting what medicine knows about the illness and the little-known workings of his body's natural cancer­fighting capacities, and marshaling his own will to live, Servan-Schreiber found himself on a fifteen-­year journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration and, finally, to health. Combining memoir, concise explanation of what makes cancer cells thrive and what inhibits them, and drawing on both conventional and alternative ways to slow and prevent cancer, Anticancer is revolutionary. It is a moving story of a doctor's inner and outer search for balance; radical in its discussion of the environment, lifestyle, and trauma; and compelling and cautionary in its proposal that cancer cells lie dormant in all of us -- and that we all must care for the "terrain" in which they exist. Advocating a sea change in the way we understand and confront can­cer, Anticancer is a radical synthesis of science and personal experience, an inspiring personal journey, and certainly a guide to "a new way of life."

Anticancer
tells us:
  • Why the traditional Western diet creates the conditions for disease and how to develop a science-based anticancer diet
  • How and why sugar and stress feed cancer­ -- and ways to achieve life balance and good nutrition to combat it
  • Why the effects of helplessness and unhealed wounds affect our ability to restore health
  • How to reap the benefits of exercise, yoga, and meditation
  • How to minimize environmental toxins
  • How to find the right blend of traditional and alternative health care
