This program is like a life insurance policy against cancer! The use of preventative dietary compounds - whole foods - has now emerged into a separate science called chemoprevention. Dr. J. Robert Hatherill, one of this new science's proponents, reveals the latest research in this exciting field and presents a daily regimen of foods that reduce the risk of getting cancer. Here is a strategy for cancer prevention, detailing foods - the Super Eight Food Groups - to include and avoid. Dr. Hatherill asserts that though simple diet changes, you and your family can proactively attack cancer that is present or prevent it before it starts. In Eat to Beat Cancer, you'll learn: how to start your children on a diet that will shield them from this devastating disease; how to decrease the formation of cancer-producing chemicals that occur during the cooking process; regiments to prevent the most prevalent cancers, including gender-specific breast and prostate cancers; and information on how to smoke and yet avoid lung cancer, as well as information on the ill effects of other high-risk habits such as drinking.

Is cancer preventable? Most is...

General Content: Cancer is one of leading causes of death in our world and contrary to what many people believe, most cancers are preventable. Proper diet plays a key role in preventing cancer and this title by Dr. Hatherill is one of the best resources I’ve seen for building a cancer-fighting diet. The beautiful part about the recommendations in this audiobook is that they won’t just help you to prevent cancer. They’ll also help prevent heart disease, strokes and a whole host of other maladies in addition to helping you to shed excess weight. Perhaps most importantly the book contains information on helping to reduce the likelihood that your children will contract cancer.

One of the things that I liked best about this book was that it drew upon information from a number of different countries around the world. Certain countries have very low rates of certain types of cancer so it makes a lot of sense to study them in an attempt to determine what they are doing right. For example, the Japanese have a low rate of lung cancer despite high rates of smoking which seems unusual. However, Dr. Hatherill points out that factors in their diet such as their increased use of soy and consumption of green tea helped to ward off lung cancer. Information like this makes this title a goldmine for anyone looking to reduce their chances of contracting cancer.

Audio-Specific Content: “Eat to Beat Cancer” is read by the author who does a great job. I listened to the abridged version which contained two cassettes and lasted approximately 3 hours. The abridgement was fine but given the amount of excellent information in the audiobook, I’m tempted to go out and buy the book to see what else is in there.
