Comments by Rebecca Katz on her helpful cookbook (and cancer fighting nutritional tool kit) The Cancer Fighting Kitchen.
My eyes tend to glaze over when I see a recipe with a long list of ingredients. I like recipes that are quick and easy. The recipes in this book tend to be a bit longer than I like (i.e. longer than six or seven ingredients). But I did get a copy of this book and, although I can’t say I’ve made any of the recipes (I have other recipe books with shorter recipes) I still found it very helpful and found a lot of useful information in it.
The most useful thing I found was a long list of foods with a description of what they do to make the body as inhospitable to cancer growth as possible. For example: anti-inflammatory, digestion aid, antimicrobial, antibacterial, NF-kB regulator, appetite stimulant, etc..
The forward is written by Keith Block, MD who is a pioneer in (and some would say the father of) the integrative cancer care field and who has dealt with virtually all types and stages of cancer for over thirty years.
