Surviving Cancer offers hope and a strategy for anyone who has been diagnosed with a solitary tumor.

In reading these pages, you will learn that the body can continue living while accommodating a solitary cancer. There are actions you can take that may prevent it from spreading, even if there are complications.

Surviving Cancer explains how you can change your diet and lifestyle habits to survive cancer -- to keep it from metastasizing and spreading to other organs in your body. Most of all, it will explain how you can literally starve cancer cells... forcing them to disappear or die.

The main focus of this book will teach you that diet is perhaps the key factor in defeating cancer, especially avoiding grains. Grains create enormous amounts of glucose in your bloodstream--and cancer cells thrive on glucose to survive and multiply. High blood sugar levels also encourage the body to release insulin, and again, this is a great danger to your cancer. Insulin promotes cell growth, including cancer cells.

The book provides insightful information on the causes of cancer, how it forms, how it may spread, and what you can do to control the cancer and return to a healthy life. The chapters also contain specific advice on avoiding exposure to environmental toxins; the value of sleep, exercise, and stress reduction; the use of spices in cooking; building good bacteria in your gut; and many other factors you con control that may help prevent a cancer from spreading to other parts of the body.

This book is for anyone who has cancer localized to a single site and not yet colonized in another part of the body. It is also for anyone who believes they are at risk of cancer due to heredity, lifestyle, working conditions, or for any other reason.

Surviving Cancer is also especially important for anyone with Type 2 diabetes, with or without cancer, to learn about the link between the two.If you have diabetes, this is an important cautionary book to read to prevent yourself from developing cancer.
