The evidence is in: you can reduce cancer risk and support treatment by focusing on six key areas of health and wellness.
 

The scientific data on the link between lifestyle, environmental factors, and cancer risk has been accumulating at an accelerated rate over the past decade: Every week we learn something more that we can do as individuals to decrease the risk of can­cer and improve the likelihood of long-term survival. Many of us—patients and doctors included—do not realize that changes in our daily choices and habits can improve quality of life, increase the chances of survival, and aid in the healing process for those with a diagnosis. These ideas were pioneered in David Servan-Schreiber’s Anticancer: A New Way of Life, and became the basis for a research study developed by Lorenzo Cohen and Servan-Schreiber at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
 
Introducing the concept of the “Mix of Six,” Cohen and Alison Jefferies make an informed case that building social and emotional support; manag­ing stress; improving sleep, exercise, and diet; and minimizing exposure to environmental toxins work together to promote an optimal environment for health and well-being. While each plays an inde­pendent role, the synergy created by all six factors can radically transform health; delay or prevent many cancers; support conventional treatments; and significantly improve quality of life—as many testi­monies and stories of those in the anticancer com­munity eloquently show. 

Anticancer Living provides an accessible, pre­scriptive guide to wellness based on the latest scien­tific findings and clinical trials, and it showcases the community of doctors, researchers, caregivers, and patients who have been inspired to create change.

*Includes a Bonus PDF with charts, graphs, chapter summaries, and appendices.

—John Mendelsohn, MD, former president, MD Anderson Cancer Center
 
“Lorenzo Cohen and Alison Jefferies are picking up the mantle from the late David Servan-Schreiber, and not a moment too soon! This book promises to be an important guide to reducing the risk of recurrence of cancer and the risk of getting it in the first place.”
—Susan M. Love, MD, MBA, bestselling author of Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book
 
 “The cheapest, most effective form of health care is not getting sick in the first place.  For cancer patients and anyone seeking to avoid a future cancer diagnosis, this book will be a bible providing a practical, achievable path toward an anticancer lifestyle.”
—Gary Hirshberg, Chairman and Cofounder, Stonyfield Farm Inc.

 
“My brother’s book, Anticancer, has already helped millions of patients around the world. Anticancer Living discusses the latest research, shares inspirational stories, and gives us practical advice. This is an indispensable book for all of us.”
—Franklin Servan-Schreiber


“It is not hyperbole to state that there is a desperate need for this book.  An astonishing number of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetimes.  Dollars spent on cancer research are devoted primarily to treatment and cure—or, to use an image from this book, “mopping up” once a cancer diagnosis has been made.  Anticancer Living provides a concrete, evidence-based guide to 'turning off the tap'—lowering inflammation in order to prevent cancer in the first place.”
— Meg Cadoux Hirshberg, Founder, Anticancer Lifestyle Foundation
