Foods That Fight Cancer
Author: Richard Béliveau, Denis Gingras
Foods That Fight Cancer was originally published in 2005 and sold over 200,000 copies in Quebec alone. It was translated into 25 languages, and sold an additional 450,000 copies worldwide. A decade has passed during which an enormous amount of conclusive scientific evidence has shown how some foods contain cancer-fighting elements. In fact, approximately one third of all cancers are directly related to diet. Every week there is a news story about a food that prevents cancer -- and it often contradicts last week's news. Foods That Fight Cancer cuts through the noise. It explains the science behind each food recommendation and its statistical potential for disease prevention. It itemizes which foods are the most effective against specific cancers and explains how they work. By understanding the science behind the therapeutic benefits of these foods, we come to realize why it is so critical -- and easy -- to bolster our body's defenses against cancer just by adding cancer-fighting foods to our diet. Here are examples of cancer-preventing foods: Curcumin may have the greatest positive impact in preventing colon cancer. Add one teaspoon of turmeric to soups, salad dressings, or pasta dishes every day. Freshly crushed garlic is by far the best source of anti-cancer compounds. Supplements have little or no effect in the fight against cancer. Fresh food is the only weapon. Nothing can guarantee a cancer-free future but we can improve the odds by a great margin. Foods That Fight Cancer is a powerful tool in that battle.
Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I. I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. . . . This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . . if only he can come out of the war alive. Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.

In December 1995, Jean-Dominique Bauby, the 43-year-old editor of French Elle, suffered a massive stroke that left him permanently paralyzed, a victim of “locked in syndrome.” Once known for his gregariousness and wit, Bauby now finds himself imprisoned in an inert body, able to communicate only by blinking his left eye. The miracle is that in doing so he was able to compose this stunningly eloquent memoir.In a voice that is by turns wistful and mischievous, angry and sardonic, Bauby gives us a celebration of the liberating power of consciousness: what it is like to spend a day with his children, to imagine lying in bed beside his wife, to conjure up the flavor of delectable meals even as he is fed through at tube. Most of all, this triumphant book lets us witness an indomitable spirit and share in the pure joy of its own survival. From the Trade Paperback edition.
