Unraveling Cancer describes the forces that cause cancer development and outlines a framework for understanding how, in health, the body is able to eliminate cells that have cancer-causing mutations. This book describes how lifestyle habits can interfere with these protective mechanisms, and explains how we can most effectively modify our habits and greatly lower the risk of developing cancer. The same forces that cause cancer also promote its growth and transition into an aggressive, metastatic disease. Making lifestyle and dietary changes even after a cancer diagnosis can reduce cancer growth, enhance treatment, and help prevent recurrence. Unraveling Cancer focuses on modifiable risk factors that can promote or help prevent cancer, even for persons with a high genetic risk of disease, such as women with BRCA mutations. These modifiable risk factors include foods and their preparation methods which impact cancer risk. This book describes better ways of preparing foods that provide for better health and lower cancer risk. The book explains which types of exercise are effective and those that do not lower cancer risk. It provides strategies to lower cancer risk, even if one is unable to exercise. Some cancer risk factors have their greatest impact during growth, and Unraveling Cancer explains how we can protect our children and grandchildren now from developing cancer as adults. Unraveling Cancer instructs not only how to prevent cancer, but to slow its advancement and make chemo and other treatments more effective. The book describes how to prepare for chemo to make it more effective in killing cancer cells, less toxic, and have fewer and less intense side effects. The book provides hope for cancer patients and their loved ones by giving them ways to enhance treatment and empowering them to participate in improving their health.
