By Patrick Quillan, PhD, RD, CNS - Providing Optimal Nutritional Guidelines to Improve Outcome for Medically Treated Cancer Patients.

From the back cover:

A well-nourished cancer patient can better manage and beat the disease. The 30 year "war on cancer" has cost $45 billion in government research with a resulting increase in the incidence and death rate 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 better chances for complete remission.

In this major revision 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, including:

  • nutrients make chemo and radiation more toxic to the cancer and less damaging to the patient
  • starving the cancer by controlling blood glucose through diet and supplements
  • common vegetables, herbs, and seasonings that have powerful anti-cancer activity
  • completely new section of delicious recipes that can be made with foods from your grocery store [I do not recommend the recipes, which avoid good fats and include soy products.]
  • how to find the underlying causes of your cancer
  • newly updated section on effective and non-toxic approaches to medically reducing cancer burden
  • newly updated section listing nutritionally-oriented doctors in your neighborhood

BEATING CANCER WITH NUTRITION has been translated in Japanese and Chinese and is a home study continuing education course for registered nurses (NCCE at 1-800-824--1254). Nutrition helps cancer patients for the following reasons:

1 Malnutrition kills more than 40% of cancer patients.

2 Making chemo and radiation less harmful to the patient and more toxic to the cancer.

3 Turbo-charging your immune system to find and destroy cancer cells in your body.

4 Sugar feeds cancer. All new section included with glycemic index of foods to starve the cancer.

5 Nutrients can slow and reverse cancer growth. Learn about commonly available and inexpensive vitamins, minerals, herbs, glandulars, fatty acids, food extracts, and probiotics to fortify your body against cancer.
