" Tôt ou tard, il allait revenir. Je connaissais les pronostics de mon cancer. Je pouvais retarder l'échéance, gagner des années, presque l'oublier, mais cette fois c'était "the Big One", comme disent les Californiens qui redoutent un tremblement de terre dévastateur. Cette rechute m'a amené à me poser les questions les plus graves, peut-être les plus importantes, de ma vie : si je suis rattrapé par la maladie alors que je pense, mange, bouge, respire et vis anticancer, alors que reste-t-il d'Anticancer ? C'est pour répondre à cette question que j'écris aujourd'hui. Ce livre est aussi l'occasion, pour moi, de dire au revoir à tous ceux qui ont apprécié mes livres précédents ou qui sont venus m'écouter. Quoiqu'il arrive, j'ai le ferme espoir que cet au revoir ne sera pas le dernier. On peut se dire au revoir plusieurs fois. " David Servan-Schreiber

The New York Times and international bestseller-now updated with the latest research Anticancer has been a bestselling phenomenon since Viking first published it in fall 2008. Now, a new edition addresses current developments in cancer research and offers more tips on how people living with cancer can fight it and how healthy people can prevent it. The new edition of Anticancer includes: • The latest research on anticancer foods, including new alternatives to sugar and cautions about some that are now on the market • New information about how vitamin D strengthens the immune system • Warnings about common food contaminants that have recently been proven to contribute to cancer progression • A new chapter on mind-body approaches to stress reduction, with recent studies that show how our reactions to stress can interfere with natural defenses and how friendships can support healing in ways never before understood • A groundbreaking study showing that lifestyle modification, as originally proposed in Anticancer, reduces mortality for breast cancer by an astounding 68 percent after completion of treatment • New supporting evidence for the entire Anticancer program
At the start of this intimate and moving memoir, Dr. David Servan- Schreiber is returning by bicycle to his Paris home from an unsettling appointment. Following several months of fatigue and fainting spells, he had scheduled an emergency MRI. The results confirm his worst fears: the return of the cancer that he was first diagnosed with nineteen years earlier.
Fully aware of what the prognosis means, he redoubles his commitment to an Anticancer diet, and complements his chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and vaccine protocols with acupuncture and yoga. At the same time, he undertakes a close assessment of his own life, realizing that he has neglected a key piece of Anticancer advice-to create a stress-free life; instead he had embarked on an international tour to take his message to the public. Nevertheless, he concludes that he would not have done it any differently.
In this book, Servan-Schreiber raises many of the most complex and personal questions about how we live and how we prepare for death. Powerful, honest, and inspiring, he continually surprises with his thoughts on what's important in life and the meaning of death.
