Let thy medicine be thy food and thy food be thy medicine” is perhaps even truer today than when it was coined by Hippocrates more than 2000 years ago. The relationship between diet and cancer is an important one, and women in particular, want to know what they can do to reduce their risk. Taking information that is often confusing and contradictory, Dr. Robert Pendergrast has written a book that is practical, highly informative and easy to understand. Any woman who is looking to give herself “an edge” against cancer should read this book.

Robert Pendergrast has written more than a good book on nutritional prevention of cancer. Breast Cancer: Reduce Your Risk with Foods You Love is a model for a new way for Americans to think about health, whether cancer, heart disease or any other serious health issue. Instead of hoping to find it early and treat it, Robert points out the way to never have to find it at all!

Correctly noting that “unfortunately, nutritional illiteracy is still commonplace among doctors,” Robert Pendergrast immediately joins the ranks of the literati with Breast Cancer: Reduce Your Risk with Foods You Love. This easily accessible gem will become an invaluable resource not only for women but for the men and children in their lives because it offers sane nutritional information that will likely reduce the risk of other malignancies as well. This book will find its place right between Foods That Fight Cancer and The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen on my office bookshelf, readily available to recommend to all the patients that I counsel. Thank you, Dr. Pendergrast, for presenting such a wealth of information in a practical guidebook so easy to digest and absorb!

As a two-time breast cancer survivor, I will strongly encourage my friends and professional contacts to read and put into practice Dr. Pendergrast’s book, Breast Cancer: Reduce Your Risk with Foods You Love. Not only are the guidelines for good nutrition in this book a necessity if I am to remain cancer free, women also can use it as a guide to maintain optimal overall health.

I want to let you know how much I appreciate your book and the work you are doing to spread this very important message. I am an oncology nurse (14 years) currently working in San Jose California. I tell all my co-workers, friends and patients about your book. Not only those with breast cancer but all those that I feel would be receptive to and able to utilize the life style changes to impact their health. I have started implementing these changes in my life mainly over the past year. I have lost 20 lbs so far. Your book has been one of the tools I have used to build healthy lifestyle habits and regain/maintain my health. I also have now decided to change the course of my nursing focus to a preventative approach. Again, thank you so much for your excellent work. You are making a difference!
