Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book: New Edition 2005
Susan M. Love
0738209732
September 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book has been considered the bible of breast-care books since it appeared in 1990. In 1995, Love completely updated the book in a 600-page second edition, including new biopsy and screening methods, implants, the pros and cons of hormone therapy, new discoveries in breast-cancer treatment, and many other topics. Every chapter has been rewritten, with the exception of the anatomy chapter ("The breast, I'm glad to report, is still located on the chest!"). Love presents copious medical information in a simple, welcoming style, and plentiful illustrations make the information even clearer. About two-thirds of the book deals with breast cancer: risk factors, prevention, screening, diagnosis, staging, emotions, treatment options, surgery, alternative treatments, clinical trials, and more. But the book isn't...

Review
"One case does not prove a theory, but my own favorable experience with macrobiotics opened my eyes to the accumulating evidence that a whole-grain, leafy vegetable, and bean diet can often prevent, arrest, and even reverse deadly degenerative diseases such as cancers, coronary heart attacks, and strokes. All Americans should get their eyes opened by reading Kushi's Cancer Prevention Diet."--Benjamin Spock, M.D.

"I have prescribed Michio Kushi's dietary approach for everything from uterine fibroid tumors to menopausal symptoms-- with great success. I eagerly await the day when people don't wait until they have cancer to start eating this way."--Christiane Northrup, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

"This is a powerful anticancer prescription, and one that I heartily recommend."--Neal D. Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians...


Lymphedema
Jeannie Burt

Aug 2005
(Paperback) - Revised Ed.
·
 
From Library Journal
Lymphedema is a swelling caused by an accumulation of lymphatic fluid in tissues and is common among women who have undergone breast cancer surgery with axillary node dissection and/or radiation. Yet prior to surgery, most women are unaware of this condition and the heartache it can bring. Burt, a human resources consultant and breast cancer patient who has been affected by lymphedema, and White, a physical therapist, have put together an informative little book that should help all women suffering from the condition, at least to some degree. In the past, many women were told they would have to live with the swollen arm and lack of mobility that appeared after their surgery. Burt and White present treatment plans, massage therapies (professional and self-administered), and exercise regimens to alleviate or diminish...

Breast Cancer Prevention & Recovery Diet
Suzannah Olivier
1580543278
Jan 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
British nutritionist Olivier shares personal stories of breast cancer recovery, including her own, and suggests that diet should be considered in connection with cancer much as it is with heart disease. She makes recommendations that are also touted in other nutrition and cancer books and straightforward nutrition books. That is, sufferers should eat more whole grains, more soy, more vegetables, certain phytoestrogens, and less saturated fat and sugar. Previously published in the United Kingdom, the book contains some British English diction, but, for the most part, measurements and other items have been adjusted for an American audience. This is a fine book, with a nice medical glossary and a well-researched bibliography; however, there isn't anything here that readers can't find in other books (e.g.,...


What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer : How Hormone Balance Can Help Save Your Life
John R. Lee M.D., et al
044652686X


·
 
Book Review
An informative and absorbing read for both medical practitioners and their patients, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer takes aim at "the breast cancer industry" with a barrage of thought-provoking ammunition.

The book is equal parts criticism and suggestion. Current health treatments, including HRT, receive serious condemnation, and authors John Lee and David Zava carefully provide plenty of medical research to back up claims that excessive estrogen is a main source of cancer-causing irregularities. While the names of all the different natural and synthetic hormones can get overwhelming for the lay reader, with perseverance your new vocabulary of terms like androstenedione, estradiol, and cortisol will enable you to communicate more effectively with your doctors. The authors...

Breast Cancer Breast Health! The Wise Woman Way (Wise Woman Herbal Series, Book 4) (Wise Woman Herbal Series)
Susun S. Weed, et al
0961462078
January 1996
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Designed to be a resource for both women who want to maintain breast health and those who've been diagnosed with breast cancer, Breast Cancer? Breast Health! The Wise Woman Way draws on "women's wisdom," or the inner knowledge often ignored by modern medicine, as a powerful tool for healing. Author Susun Weed proposes an anticancer lifestyle, and, if cancer does enter the picture, a six-step plan for healing (sleep is at zero, or "Do Nothing"; surgery is number six, which she terms "Break and Enter"), with various complementary healing techniques included throughout.

Weed is careful to point out that supplements and herbs can hurt as much as they can help, and she lists several alternative-medicine techniques that should be avoided no matter what. The steps she does recommend--from herbal oils for breast massage to help...

Dr. Peter Scardino's Prostate Book: The Complete Guide to Overcoming Prostate Cancer, Prostatitis, and BPH
Peter T. Scardino
1583332200
April 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Many men have a dreaded fear of prostate problems that prevents them from seeking help. In response to that approach, Scardino, a practicing urologist at Manhattan's Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, quotes Joe Torre regarding his own experience with prostate cancer: "When you get the information, the fear just sort of melts away." This book should diminish many fears with its straightforward, three-part presentation. Part One introduces the normal prostate and its function. Part Two presents common prostate problems that more than half of all men will face: prostatitis and an enlarged prostate. Part Three, the most comprehensive section, presents all that's presently known about prostate cancer (prostate tumors account for one-third of all internal cancers diagnosed in men). In simple, concise prose,...

Dressed To Kill: The Link between Breast Cancer and Bras
Sydney Ross Singer, Soma Grismaijer
1930858051
March 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Singer and Grismaijer have collected striking (but preliminary) evidence that bra-wearing may be a major risk factor associated with breast cancer: women who wear tight-fitting bras 24 hours a day are 125 times more likely to have breast cancer than women who do not wear bras at all. Their interpretation is that tight clothing inhibits the proper functioning of the lymphatic system (an internal network of vessels and nodes that flushes wastes from the body) and leads to a buildup of carcinogenic compounds in the constricted areas. Although it must be emphasized that their studies are preliminary, still controversial, and definitely need to be followed up with detailed analyses of correlative factors (do these women have higher rates of smoking? do they have less-healthy diets?), this book should be read by anyone...

A proven approach to beating disease and enjoying peak health written by one of the country's most dynamic health educators.

Experimental Leukemia and Mammary Cancer
Charles Brenton Huggins

Apr 1979
Hardcover

Book Description
Charles Brenton Huggins won the Nobel prize in 1966 for his extensive work in cancer research. He has spent fifty years at the laboratory bench exploring the nature of this disease in an attempt to understand and control it. In this volume, based almost exclusively on experiments conducted over the past twenty years at the University of Chicago, is both the record of Huggins's own research and, in Huggins's words, "a do-it-yourself guide for cancer research workers." Written simply and clearly so that the experiments can be easily reproduced, the book presents Huggins's experiments in the induction of breast cancer and leukemia in rodents. It also describes the methods he discovered to prevent cancer and to cure many of the cancers he has been able to induce. Although most of the material concerns breast cancer and...
