Can Food Be Medicine Against Cancer?


Top foods that fight cancer

To fill a gap in available literature, Dr Wilkinson wanted to provide inspiring material based on credibly sourced, thoroughly referenced, peer-reviewed research. He felt there was a need to write a book that provides for the information needs of medical and allied health practitioners, cancer patients, their carers and people interested in cancer prevention. So he wrote: “Can Food be Medicine Against Cancer? – A healthy handbook that combines science, medicine and not-so-common sense.”

The book’s reader-friendly, inspiring style and easy-to-navigate structure provide quickly accessible, highly informative, helpful, practical information and insights.

The book addresses three key questions:

  • Does eating certain foods make any difference against cancer?
  • How do I know which food to eat?
  • Can I really trust what I read?

In answering these questions, Dr Wilkinson points out that nearly all cancers are not primarily genetic, but are influenced by factors under our control, including what we eat. The book takes the reader on a tour of the top foods that protect against cancer and explains the scientific reasons why these foods are effective. Readers discover how cancer cells work and what turns them off. The book provides practical advice on food selection and preparation followed by detailed evidence drawn from an abundance of research on the subject. The book will “change the way you look at food forever and point you in the right direction to achieving cancer-resistant health for life.”

The book retails for $24.95 with net proceeds going to further research.
