"An evidence-based plan to reduce cancer risk and support treatment, featuring six pillars of lifestyle change to support health and well-being. Most patients (and many doctors) do not realize that changes in our daily choices and habits can reduce cancer risk; and improve quality of life, increase the chances of survival, and aid in the healing process for those with cancer. Drawing on the latest scientific evidence and a clinical trial developed at the MD Anderson Cancer Center with David Servan-Schreiber, author of Anticancer: A New Way of Life, Cohen and Jefferies offer a prescriptive plan for optimizing health and thriving after a cancer diagnosis. Social and emotional support, stress management, sleep, exercise, diet, and minimizing exposure to environmental toxins each play an independent role, but working together promote an optimal environment for health and well-being. The synergy created by the Mix of Six can radically transform your health, delay or prevent you or your loved ones from ever getting cancer, support conventional treatments for cancer patients, and significantly improve quality of life - as many testimonies and stories of those in the anticancer community eloquently show. David Servan-Schreiber's Anticancer introduced a revolutionary way to understand and confront cancer. Now Anticancer Living offers a way to further put those principles into daily practice"
