Summary
  • "An evidence-based plan to reduce cancer risk and support treatment, featuring six pillars of lifestyle change to support health and well-being. Most patients (and many doctors) do not realize that changes in our daily choices and habits can reduce cancer risk; and improve quality of life, increase the chances of survival, and aid in the healing process for those with cancer. Drawing on the latest scientific evidence and a clinical trial developed at the MD Anderson Cancer Center with David Servan-Schreiber, author of Anticancer: A New Way of Life, Cohen and Jefferies offer a prescriptive plan for optimizing health and thriving after a cancer diagnosis. Social and emotional support, stress management, sleep, exercise, diet, and minimizing exposure to environmental toxins each play an independent role, but working together promote an optimal environment for health and well-being. The synergy created by the Mix of Six can radically transform your health, delay or prevent you or your loved ones from ever getting cancer, support conventional treatments for cancer patients, and significantly improve quality of life - as many testimonies and stories of those in the anticancer community eloquently show. David Servan-Schreiber's Anticancer introduced a revolutionary way to understand and confront cancer. Now Anticancer Living offers a way to further put those principles into daily practice"--
  • "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 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"--
