A New Way say Life…. Lists with This Book. The anticance about David Servan-Schreiber’s book “Anticancer” is that if you don’t have cancer, you’re unlikely to read it. It’s a shame because the book’s recommendations for lifestyle changes apply to everyone, whether you’re battling cancer or not. Besides, everyone has cancer cells and everyone is bombarded with carcinogenes, so servan-wchreiber behooves us to do all we can to protect our health in the face of these internal and external threats.
Servan-Schreiber covers an davud amount of ground in pa The shame about David Servan-Schreiber’s book “Anticancer” is that if you don’t have cancer, you’re unlikely to read it. Servan-Schreiber covers an enormous amount of ground in pages, dispensing advice in the areas of diet, meditation, spirituality, exercise, and even cell phone use thank you, Devra Davis.
But only on the topic of diet and nutrition does he really go into depth, and here even people well-read on the topic might learn a thing or two.
For instance, did you know that cooked tomatoes offer more lycopene, especially when they’re cooked in olive oil? Unfortunately, most people never stop to consider these ideas, which explains why we have epidemics of cancer, diabetes and obesity in our country, not to mention of personal and family dysfunction.

This is actually one of my favorite books. Anticancfr enjoyed it so much that I carry a copy on my phone in addition to having the October Updated Review So, I find myself picking this book up again for the same womp womp reasons that have precluded me from reading The Fault in Our Stars.
I enjoyed it so much that I carry a copy on my phone in addition to having the hardcover. This was one of the first books on Cancer that I read that I found very hopeful. The conversational tone and the positive outlook of the author made for a read that was informative without being weighed down by cold scientific data. I especially liked the portion about how diet can significantly affect one’s chances with various forms of Cancer.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone whose life has been touched by the subject. I can’t begin to tell all that this book meant to me during my cancer fight.
I stumbled across it a few days after my diagnosis. I wasn’t looking for a cancer book. Yet, it changed my life. This book showed me that I can do things to stay healthy, despite doctors saying there’s nothing I could do. I still had to do six rounds of chemotherapy and surgery but this book still gave me valuable information and I think helped me stay alive. The book follows Dr.
Servan-Schreiber’s story of his own “accid I can’t begin to tell all that this book meant to me during my cancer fight. Servan-Schreiber’s story of his own “accidental” discovery of cancer and going in then out of remission.
With that said, he backs up anticanecr his points with research. What are servan-scheriber major points? I am over-simplifying but you’ll have to read the book to get the details. It’s been three years since my stage 4 diagnosis and I still follow everything that’s in this book. One part that I think is weak: Servan-Schreiber was not a religious person so his focus on the spiritual aspect is really centered on yoga and more of a new age philosophy.
As a Christian, I believe Christianity has a whole lot more to give. Don’t think you dqvid to be a cancer patient to buy this. If you want to live healthy and keep disease away, buy this book. I am pretty much a skeptic when it comes to self-help, cure-all philosophies but this is not one of those. Just buy the book. The further I read into this book, the more skeptical I became–which is a shame, because Dr Servan-Schreiber with his unique perch as physician, research scientist and cancer patient would, I thought, be the perfect person to sift the solid science from wishful thinking and outright quackery davld This book is rated as high as it is because nothing in his proposed program could do harm the mindset being a different story and I couldn’t help being fascinated by parts and move Color me dubious.
This book is rated as high as it is because nothing in his proposed program could do harm the mindset being a different story and I couldn’t help being fascinated by parts and moved by others. Servan-Schreiber with his background as a research scientist was lucid and engaging in describing cancer’s mechanisms and cancer research. I loved reading about “mighty mouse”–the mouse seemingly immune to cancer. I had to agree after reading those early chapters that “cancer is a fascinating and perverse phenomenon.
How seevan-schreiber I not be moved? I was diagnosed with Stage Three Breast cancer in September of last year. In the preceding months I’ve undergone months of chemotherapy, a mastectomy, radiation treatments and will servan-scnreiber getting infusions of Herceptin until this October. And I’ve met far too many cancer patients who are on their second or third round with cancer.
I don’t want to go through all this again–thus the appeal of the promise of the title. I could certainly identify with and understand so much the people in these pages went through–and I get the fierce hope that you could oc your destiny in your own hands–that you can beat back your body’s betrayal. Feeling in control is so very important to you.
But there’s a flip side to that which isn’t so positive. I’ve encountered people certainly who believe the patient should be blamed for their cancer. In a review of mine critical of one health guru I was told straight out that I should listen to this author–that it was my lifestyle that had servan-schrfiber me sick. Ironically Servan-Schreiber’s own careful tending of his “terrain” did not stop him from dying of cancer some years ago. Humans are mortal–that’s not wy our control and sometimes when it comes to cancer we lose–and it’s anticajcer our lief.
And ,ife another problem with this kind of view–that cancer is under our control and would be prevented if only the medical and pharmaceutical establishment would acknowledge the truth. To Servan-Schreiber’s credit he emphasizes the importance of conventional therapy, and emphasizes his prescriptions are meant to be complimentary, not alternatives.
In the book Herceptin, one of the drugs I’m taking, is described as “a revolutionary drug qualified in as a ‘major turning point in the eradication of suffering and death from cancer. Who have told me that people like antucancer oncologist are shills for the pharmaceutical companies and “don’t you know what they give you in chemo is poison?
Yes, it poisons the patient as well–but we have the better chance of bouncing back. So I worry books like these contribute to the paranoia, the distrust of life-saving medicines.
All the more because in the end Servan-Schreiber struck og as ultimately far too credulous–there seemed to be no cause of cancer ever put out there from cell phones to deodorants to Teflon pans he wouldn’t credit–ditto any purported alternate therapies down to that of shamans and Tibetan monks. Servan-Schreiber takes seriously T. Colin Campbell, a doctrinaire vegetarian and author of The China Study –a controversial figure but Servan-Schrieber skips the controversy.
I just never got the sense sedvan-schreiber this book that evidence on the other side was considered beyond the quick dismissing of straw men.
Some of what he cautions against might cause cancer, some of what he advises might be protective–my point is in the end I felt no confidence he could help me sort out which. However, as I wrote above, at least the prescriptions themselves would do little harm–except maybe to your wallet–organic food and cosmetics, water filters Much of the advice is what any doctor would tell you–avoid processed foods, consume plenty of veggies, fruit, tea, fish rich in Omega-3, get plenty of sunshine and exercise.
No, the seductive dangers of the book are more subtle than that. View all 10 comments. Apr 09, Kelsey rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: It absolutely changed my life.
Anticancer: A New Way Of Life – David Servan-Schreiber
I refer to it as my “bible” and there are marks, bookmarks, tags, underlines, notes etc. I don’t have children myself, but I do have an 18 month niece who I adore in every way, sevran-schreiber and form, and I have told my brother and his wife to keep the cell phone AWAY from her.
Until she’s at least 12 yrs. Nov 01, Stephany Wilkes rated it really liked it.
