The long-awaited follow-up to Anticancer: A New Way of Life by David Servan-Schreiber's colleague and research collaborator, Dr. Lorenzo Cohen Dr. David Servan-Schreiber's Anticancer introduced a revolutionary way to understand and confront cancer, changing the lives of millions around the world. He laid out the principles of integrative care that had allowed him to live many years beyond expectations for his own cancer, but readers have long requested a specific plan to implement his approach. Anticancer Living is that book.      Most patients (and doctors) do not realize that lifestyle changes can dramatically reduce risk, assist treatment, and improve chances of surviving and even thriving after a diagnosis. Over the course of a major study Servan-Schreiber designed with Dr. Lorenzo Cohen at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, six key areas have emerged: stress management, sleep, social and emotional support, diet, exercise, and avoiding environmental toxins. Each plays a role--but it's the synergies created by this "Mix of Six" that can bring about real shifts in health and well-being in as little as six weeks, significantly improving quality of life and positively supporting conventional cancer treatments.

Editorial Reviews

The cheapest, most effective form of health care is not getting sick in the first place.  For cancer patients and anyone seeking to avoid a future cancer diagnosis, this book will be a bible providing a practical, achievable path toward an anticancer lifestyle. Gary Hirshberg, Chairman and Cofounder, Stonyfield Farm Inc.
My brother’s book, Anticancer, has already helped millions of patients around the world. Anticancer Living discusses the latest research, shares inspirational stories, and gives us practical advice. This is an indispensable book for all of us. Franklin Servan-Schreiber
“It is not hyperbole to state that there is a desperate need for this book.  An astonishing number of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetimes.  Dollars spent on cancer research are devoted primarily to treatment and cure—or, to use an image from this book, “mopping up” once a cancer diagnosis has been made.  Anticancer Living provides a concrete, evidence-based guide to 'turning off the tap'—lowering inflammation in order to prevent cancer in the first place.  Meg Cadoux Hirshberg, Founder, Anticancer Lifestyle Foundation
Lorenzo Cohen and Alison Jefferies are picking up the mantle from the late David Servan-Schreiber, and not a moment too soon! This book promises to be an important guide to reducing the risk of recurrence of cancer and the risk of getting it in the first place. Susan M. Love, MD, MBA, bestselling author of Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book  
Anticancer Living presents scientific evidence that changing the way we live can reduce deaths from cancer and other major diseases. It shows us how to go about altering our lifestyles in order to achieve this goal and feel better every day.  This much needed book provides a prescription for better health, from experienced professionals who want passionately to help you improve your life. John Mendelsohn, MD, former president, MD Anderson Cancer Center
Anticancer Living will empower millions of people with information they can use to reduce their risk of getting cancer and improve their chances of surviving a cancer diagnosis. Highly recommended! Dean Ornish, MD
An invaluable guide for both professionals in the health field and the general public . . . written by authors with impeccable credentials. Deepak Chopra, MD
