The war on cancer is a tragedy. Billions upon billions of dollars are being spent to develop and apply treatments that are invasive, expensive, painful, often mutilating, and in many cases of little benefit.

“Meanwhile, most of us are unknowingly increasing the probability of cancer with our every meal. The more I’ve learned about diet and cancer, the more stunned I’ve been at our ignorance of their close relationship. We do not have to quake helplessly in the face of cancer, ‘hoping’ to escape its clutches.

“We do not have to sit by passively, watching our loved ones succumb to this disease. We do not have to spend our life savings, undergoing painful and devastating treatments that do little or no good. We are blessed now with the knowledge, which enables us to make clear, life-giving choices. We need only make them in time.”
