David Servan-Schreiber was diagnosed with a brain tumour fifteen years ago, and had conventional treatment - but relapsed seven years later. Unsatisfied when his doctor told him to continue with life as normal after his second recovery, he decided to research the causes of cancer. His new book, 'Anticancer: A New Way of Life' is a result of that research, and argues that by diet and lifestyle, along with conventional cancer treatment, we can defend ourselves against cancer.
Why do you call the western diet a "fertilizer for cancer?"
Too much sugar
Too many bad oils (transfats)
We eat battery-fed animals that eat corn, soy and wheat - all rich in Omega-6's which trigger the growth of fatty cells
We don't eat enough fruit and vegetables, particularly those in the cabbage family, and garlic, onion, leeks.
