Fighting Cancer with Vitamins Minerals and Antioxidants KEDAR N., Ph.D. Prasad ; K. Che Prasad

HEALTH / WELLNESS "Dr. Prasad's book is a comprehensive and fascinating review of current cancer therapies and the controversies surrounding them. His extensive research has made him one of the leading and respected authorities in the field of antioxidant use during cancer treatment." -- Jeanne Drisko, M.D., CNS, FACN, director of the program in Integrative Medicine, University of Kansas Medical Center "A useful and well-organized antidote to the mass of irresponsible information about vitamins. I applaud Dr. Prasad for providing the public with a responsible presentation." --Frank L. Meyskens Jr., M.D., director of Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of California, Irvine Despite extensive research and the development of new treatments and drugs, the U.S. mortality rate from cancer has not changed during the past several decades. Yet there are promising nutritional ways of avoiding and even beating cancer. In this completely revised and expanded edition, leading anticancer researcher Kedar N. Prasad and doctor K. Che Prasad reveal the latest revolutionary discoveries in the use of antioxidants and micronutrients to prevent and treat cancer--and also help with heart disease, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's. Providing a simple nutritional program to follow, the authors show how micronutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants can enhance the beneficial effects of conventional cancer treatments, decrease their toxic side effects, improve long-term prognosis, and reduce the risk of new cancer. Explaining how antioxidants regulate gene expression and cancer heredity, the authors detail how to counteract the risks of dental and medical X-rays, CT scans, mammograms, cell phones, frequent flying, and other unavoidable hazards of modern life; reduce the oxidative stress of free radicals in the blood; and decrease chronic inflammation. Reviewing recent studies, they deflate the controversies surrounding the use of antioxidants in cancer treatment, revealing everything from the reason why many vitamins in foods are destroyed during storage to the surprising role of selenium in cancer prevention. KEDAR N. PRASAD, Ph.D., is the chief scientific officer of the Premier Micronutrient Corporation, the former director of the Center for Vitamins and Cancer Research at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and the former president of the International Society of Nutrition and Cancer. His son, K. CHE PRASAD, M.S., M.D., is director of microbiology and codirector of cytology at Marin Medical Laboratories. Both authors live in the San Francisco Bay area.
