Review by

Interesting premise but I'm just not quite convinced, the subtext seems to be that you made your cancer bed and you only have yourself to blame. Maybe it's just my issues creeping into my read of it. Like another reviewer I had issues with the shortness of the last chapter. This book would have been 4 star if it wasn't for the emphasis on UK medical help, the NHS etc, so for someone like me a lot of the advice was somewhat useless.I'm also of the opinion that there is no one size fits all diet. The vegan diet espoused in this may work for some but it may not for others and we need a lot more research to determine what's the best thing to do for everyone. I would say that it's worth a read but you need to read it carefully and separate theory from fact.
