When David Servan-Schreiber, a dedicated scientist and doctor, was diagnosed with brain cancer, his life changed dramatically. Forced to confront what medicine knows about the illness, and all that we still do not know, Servan-Schreiber marshaled his will to live and set out to understand the complex inner workings of the body's natural cancer-fighting capabilities. He soon found himself on a fifteen-year journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration and, finally, to health. Anticancer is at once the moving story of one doctor's inner and outer search for balance and a radical exposition of the roles that environment, lifestyle, and trauma play in our health. drawing on conventional and alternative approaches, Servan-Schreiber concisely explains what makes cancer cells thrive and what inhibits them and offers empowering strategies to prevent their growth. Anticancer's synthesis of science and personal experience marks a sea change in the way we understand and confront cancer. Now enriched with the results of recent groundbreaking research, Anticancer remains a pioneering and peerless resource, an inspirational and revolutionary guide to "a new way of life."
