“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”

I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”

Expert Panel finds that healthy lifestyle can greatly reduce cancer risk

In this review, written by M. Nathaniel Mead in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, researchers from the World Cancer Research Fund, and the American Institute for Cancer Research, report their summary of 9 systematic literature review (SLR) teams comprising 22 panelists to summarize the literature on nutrition, physical activity, and cancer.

The teams examined 7,000 articles, reviews, and meta-analyses in all languages. Team findings went to an international panel that synthesized information for many different cancers to come up with the report’s main recommendations.

The report concluded that about 40% of all cancers are linked to poor diet, physical inactivity, and sub-optimal body weight.
