    "Document not found" is appearing. Can you look into that

    Good recipes. However when battling cancer- you probably won't eat acidic foods- nor will you want to eat ruffage during radiation treatments since you will be having voracious continous bathroom issues.
    Also, check the estrogen levels of food - yes plant estrogen in chickpeas is a no no when you are fighting estrogen receptive cancers.
    Now that I am cancer free - these are recipes i will use. But during treatment foods and smells could send you to the bathroom.

    A preventive vaccine, developed by Dr. Vincent Tuohy of the Cleveland Clinic was found to be 100% effective in preventing breast cancer in mice. Even mice bred for a high incidence of breast cancer failed to develop it when the vaccine was administered. Further, researchers found that mice already infected with breast cancer saw a marked reduction in tumors after being given this vaccine.

    Yes, changing the way you eat after a cancer diagnosis CAN make a difference. There is ample evidence that positive changes to diet and lifestyle can reduce the recurrence of cancer.

    These recipes look delicious, just a bit surprised no mention of ground flax seed. Again, look at the research out there showing the benefits of this fantastic fiber source.

    What fabulous recipes! I'll have to recommend some of these to my grandmother who is battling this ugly disease as we speak.

    I left my tribute to her on Gateway For Cancer Research's "Cancer Canvas" -- it's a beautiful way to show your support and I highly recommend it! Here's a quick link: http://owl.li/dya7g

    I enjoyed the article, but find confusing commnets: blueberries are very sensitive to pesticides, so they cannot be very much sprayed... and you don't mention all the residues of post-crop chemicals present in orange and lemon peel, while you recommend its consumption... I would say GO ORGANIC, allways, for your healt and the health of our Planet!

    It's not all about you. If you read the introduction I believe that you'll see that this issue is all about how eating lots of fruits and vegetables, exercising, and maintaining a healthy weight may help prevent you from getting cancer. Once you have cancer you have it; does what you eat at that point make a difference? The key is to do everything in your power to try to prevent getting cancer to begin with and they give a lot of great tips for doing that in this issue.

    Having stage 4 cancer is not the best thing that ever happened to me but having the love and support from my family and friends is the best!!When I was diagnosed my oncologist told me the best thing for this disease is a positive attitude.YES it works!!!The other and just as important step is overcoming the negative energy. Ct Scan and an MRI are not fun and they are challenging. SELF hypnosis works!! I am a success!!!

  • Alyssa Becker 27 Aug, 2012

    Visually each healthy recipe was brought to life. I am looking forward to tasting them now. Thank you for a creative way to fight cancer.

  • PamyCST 27 Aug, 2012

    Lovely to look at. Thank you for your donation. Appreciated the nutritional information, and would have loved to see the sugar content - since cancer LOVES sugar.

    Eat anything with Curry in it: "Curcumin and Cancer Cells: How Many Ways Can Curry Kill Tumor Cells Selectively?" Curcumin is the yellow pigment in Turmeric/Curry powder. It's been found to kill MANY kinds of cancer, including #Melanoma and #Neuroblastoma. This article comes from the US Government's National Institutes of Health PubMed database, which is like an on-line library of all published scientific papers relating to medical research. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2758121/

    How do I purchase this?

  • GYPzee63 15 Aug, 2012

    I am grateful for the wonderful information & the beautiful illustrations. They delight my senses and help me breathe through the issue of breast cancer that is currently running riot through my family. I am able to share these ideas with them and incorporate them into my life to stave off cancer myself (I hope).

  • Leigh Runkle 14 Aug, 2012

    I am the caregiver for my mom, who has pancreatic cancer. I know she tries to do the right things to take care of herself. I would consider buying this, I think it is an excellent guide!

  • YPedersen 13 Aug, 2012

    As cancer continues to plague our society reaching all ages, genders and races, it is imperative that we seek organic and natural solutions to combat this monster. Thank you for providing an alternative resource and for making a donation to the fight for cancer.

  • Ilnara 13 Aug, 2012

    There are a few recipes I need to modify because of my food allergies. It would be nice to see alternatives for those of us who can't eat certain foods.

  • Choosewisely 13 Aug, 2012

    Recipes look good! Will be trying some soon! One question though, how do you shred kale?

  • bnicodemus 13 Aug, 2012

    I have Adenocarcinoma Cancer. Nice idea, but the issue does not send a Positive Message to ME! You Need More Input from active chemotherapy patients...like me. Your ideas are just not realistic when you are fighting just to keep food down! Sorry to burst your bubble. Barbara

  • Kathleen Rickard 13 Aug, 2012

    I'll do anything I can to make everyone with cancer a survivor! If you preview this magazine they will make a donation to help that cause. And you all know I am a Martha Stewart wannabee. Great food ideas and standing up to cancer!
