Product Description: The inspirational concept of "thriving" is promoted in this groundbreaking plan, which pinpoints five specific pathways that are essential to preventing cancer: immunity, inflammation, hormones, insulin resistance, and detoxification/digestion. The strategy goes beyond basic advice on the immune system and dieting, describing in detail how the human body is designed to anticipate this sickness in the first place. Penned by actual cancer survivors, featuring accounts of current fighters, and including commentary from those who have lost loved ones to the disease, this guide weaves personal stories with a game plan for avoiding an all-too-common ailment.
