Reversing our Cancer Epidemic

Dr. David Servan-Schrieber believes that we are in the midst a self-inflicted epidemic of cancer, which affects approximately one in three people in the U.S.

After undergoing chemotherapy and surgery for brain cancer, Servan-Schreiber, a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, asked his oncologist if any lifestyle changes would prevent a relapse; the answer was no. 

Certain this was wrong, Servan-Schreiber spent months researching a mass of scientific data on natural defenses against cancer.

His book, Anticancer: A New Way of Life, discusses how eating a diet high in sugar and trans-fats, as well as other lifestyle choices we make, contribute to the 40% of cancer cases that are completely preventable.

Here is his story, and information about how you can prevent cancer yourself.
