Very good books
Dr David Servan-Schreiber's - Anti Cancer, a new way of life. David takes his diet from
Dr Richard Beliveau PhD - Foods that fight cancer
Dr Richard Beliveau PhD - Foods to fight cancer
Dr Richard Beliveaus PhD - Cooking with Foods that fight Cancer.

Google - Dr David Servan-Schreiber, there is a lot of info in the internet. Below are good internet sites - the first is a University lecture, takes around 1 1/2 hours but worth it.

Valley of the Shadow: a Journey Through Cancer and Beyond

Type: 
Book
Description: 

The memoir of a retired nursing professor's journey through lung cancer. It vividly and honestly portrays her feelings and pain as she goes through diagnosis, chemotherapy, hair loss, surgery and recuperation. There are "Waysides" along the way to reflect on what was learned and how it can help others who are traveling with cancer. Finally, it deals with how her experience with cancer has turned into one of personal growth and renewal. This book is written by a health care professional, but there is no intent to provide medical information. It is, instead, a sharing of memories of personal experiences with the intent of helping others on their journey with cancer. It offers inspiration and hope to all facing cancer.
