Bathsheba's Breast: Women, Cancer & History

Type: 
Book
Description: 

A scholarly history of breast cancer, from ancient Egypt all the way to the present time.

While I was in treatment, I kept wondering what women had to go through BEFORE there were lumpectomies, or chemo, or estrogen blockers, so I found this book really fascinating....I'm a big history wonk....:-)

Type: 
Book
Description: 

A lot of the same ideas about food as Anti-Cancer, but with recipes and practical tips for how to incorporate foods into your diet. I thought the practical aspect was an area where Anticancer was lacking, so this makes a good companion to it.
