Wonderful recipes with a huge variety of foods (fish, meats, desserts, vegetarian, etc.) and also a large section with great advice on lowering your cancer risk (antioxidants, vitamins, etc.). Highly recommended for all cooks!
This book was purchased for my Mother who was going through cancer surgery and it gave her power to correct diet to maximize the process. She’s lived another 16 years.
Great recipes, lovely cookbook. I highly recommend it mainly because it is full of good recipes. I am fighting liver caNcer which is why I bought it but I would not have bought it if it hadn’t had good recipes.
