A Revolution in Cancer Prevention
This urgent, hopeful new book explores the cutting edge in the war against cancer-with exclusive coverage of the most exciting discovery of all: chemopreventive drugs that can actually stop the cancer process from starting
The landmark announcement, five years ago, that tamoxifen could significantly reduce the rate of breast cancer in high-risk women, signaled the dawn of a new era in the battle against cancer. Now two highly respected physicians, one of them a cancer survivor herself, report on the recent dramatic breakthroughs in cancer prevention. Whether the goal is to avoid ever getting cancer, to arrest precancerous changes, or to prevent a recurrence, people will turn to this book for news they can use. The Answer to Cancer:
- Provides the latest information on the new chemopreventive drugs
- Identifies key lifestyle factors that can influence cancer risk-and outline a comprehensive self-care plan
- Evaluates the effectiveness of anti-cancer measures
- Helps readers to conduct their own personal risk assessments
Evidence that it is possible to intervene early to prevent cancer is so strong that the National Cancer Institute is currently sponsoring 80 chemoprevention trials. The new information in this book gives us all reason to hope that we are on our way to winning the war against this dreaded disease.
