Are you doing everything you can to make sure your breasts are healthy?

If this question gives you pause, you’re not alone. Confusing media and conflicting advice surrounding breast health can make it challenging to know what’s best.

In the United States this year, more than 40,000 women will die from breast cancer. Dr. John G. West wants to help you avoid becoming part of that statistic through preventative methods and screenings. And for women who are diagnosed, Dr. West provides guidance and wisdom to make the best possible treatment decisions.

For nearly 20 years, Dr. West has focused on giving his patients the best care possible when they show up for diagnosis or treatment. The question he gets most often from his patients is: “What would you tell me if I were your wife or daughter?” Prevent, Survive, Thrive: Every Woman’s Guide to Optimal Breast Care is the answer.

Drawing from the latest scientific findings in the field of breast care, Dr. West outlines the things most women don’t know about screening, like when you should insist on an ultrasound instead of only relying on mammogram results or how to determine if you should get genetic testing—and what it can and cannot tell you about your cancer risk. He lets you know exactly what kind of pain is normal and what should be investigated further.

Dr. West even offers lifestyle advice to help lower your risk factors; things as small as how often you exercise or where you carry your cell phone can have an impact on your future health.

Prevent, Survive, Thrive provides clear, accurate guidelines for prevention and early detection—letting you take control of your health.

About the author

A general surgeon by training, Dr. John G. West became fascinated with the multidisciplinary team approach to breast cancer care in the mid 1980's.

Dr. West opened Orange County's first breast care center in 1988, and over the past 20 yrs has been on the cutting edge of developing a team approach to the care of patients with breast problems. He was cofounder and chairman of the board of the Be Aware Foundation, which is a community outreach program dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer. Dr. West has been named a Best Doctor in America and has been recognized as one of the “Best Doctors in Orange County.” He has been the lead author in 20 peer review articles and has written two previous books.

At the dawn of the last century, leading scientists and politicians giddily predicted that science—especially Darwinian biology—would supply solutions to all the intractable problems of American society, from crime to poverty to sexual maladjustment.

Instead, politics and culture were dehumanized as scientific experts began treating human beings as little more than animals or machines. In criminal justice, these experts denied the existence of free will and proposed replacing punishment with invasive “cures” such as the lobotomy. In welfare, they proposed eliminating the poor by sterilizing those deemed biologically unfit. In business, they urged the selection of workers based on racist theories of human evolution and the development of advertising methods to more effectively manipulate consumer behavior. In sex education, they advocated creating a new sexual morality based on “normal mammalian behavior” without regard to longstanding ethical and religious imperatives.

Based on extensive research with primary sources and archival materials, John G. West’s captivating Darwin Day in America tells the story of how American public policy has been corrupted by scientistic ideology. Marshaling fascinating anecdotes and damning quotations, West’s narrative explores the far-reaching consequences for society when scientists and politicians deny the essential differences between human beings and the rest of nature. It also exposes the disastrous results that ensue when experts claiming to speak for science turn out to be wrong. West concludes with a powerful plea for the restoration of democratic accountability in an age of experts.

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.”
