The revolutionary, New York Times bestselling guide to the powerful lifestyle changes that fight and prevent cancer—an integrative approach based on the latest scientific research
“A common-sense blueprint for healthy living.” —Chicago Tribune
“Resonating with cancer support communities and recommended nationwide.” —Los Angeles Times
“Life affirming . . . filled with practical advice.” —The Seattle Times
David Servan-Schreiber was a rising neuroscientist with his own brain imaging laboratory when, in the middle of an equipment test, he discovered a tumor the size of a walnut in his own brain. Forced to confront what medicine knows about cancer, and all that we still do not know, Servan-Schreiber marshaled his will to live and set out to understand the complex inner workings of the body’s natural cancer-fighting capabilities. He soon found himself on a decades-long journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration and, finally, a new view of health.
Anticancer is at once the moving story of one doctor’s inner and outer search for wellness and a radical exposition of the roles that lifestyle, environment, and trauma play in our health. Drawing on the latest research in integrative medicine that blends conventional and alternative approaches, Servan-Schreiber concisely explains what makes cancer cells thrive, what inhibits them, and how we can empower ourselves to prevent their growth. His advice details how to develop a science-based anticancer diet (and the small changes that can make a big difference); how to reap the benefits of exercise, yoga, and meditation; which toxic, unsafe products to replace in your home; and how to stave off the effects of helplessness and unhealed wounds to regain balance.
Anticancer’s synthesis of science and personal experience marks a transformation in the way we understand and confront cancer. A long-running bestseller that has changed the lives of millions around the world, Anticancer remains a pioneering and peerless resource, an inspirational and revolutionary guide to “a new way of life.”


  • Anticancer, a new way of lief

    By Howarthd
    This was such a helpful perspective and one that works with modern medicine. I like being reminded of the things I control!
  • Missing a part

    By Twibb
    This is a marvelous book. However, I'm disappointed that it does not contain the color "Anticancer Action" section that the regular book has, as it's a very good brief overview.

    Incredible book. Should be on the Reading List of Life. Helpful, encouraging, specific, copiously cited, and a very captivating read. DSS inspires and galvanizes. A must-read.
  • My new way of life

    By Beingproactive
    After my father was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer I had a lot of pain to work though. I am a firm believer that everything we put into our bodies effects our health and this book showed me just how true that is. This book has helped me work though my pain and be proactive in my own life as well has helped my father stay strong though out his aggressive treatments. It has great suggestions that work with everyday life, even the smallest changes have a big impact. The bonus, you don't have to be a doctor or nutritionalist to understand the concepts in this book.
  • Anti cancer

    By Assihoppen
    1year ago when I was cancer free or better, had no idea I had cancer this book shook me out of my sleep and brainless living the western lifestyle. Now, that I am diagnosed with cancer, it even makes more sense and after buying many hardcover books for friends and family, I am turning my life again to this outstanding book of truth and hope. Don't read it once. Read it over and over and make the right changes in your life. It's never too late.
