Support for Anticancer from Prof. John Mendelsohn of the MD Anderson Cancer Center
In a recent email, Prof. Mendelsohn – who is the President of the largest Cancer center in the United States -- expressed his support for the ideas laid out in “Anticancer: A New Way of Life”, and invited me to lead a series of talks at the University of Texas’ new “Center for Integrative Oncology”.
I wanted to share with you the satisfaction I felt recently, when Prof. John Mendelsohn, MD, the President of the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston – the largest center for care and research in cancer in the United States – sent me word of his support. He also invited me to spend part of this summer leading lead a series of discussions with the team of the new "Center for Integrative Oncology" in Houston this summer. At a time when it may seem that medical experts some oncologists are still enmeshed in pointless controversies are still lukewarm about cancer prevention patients taking part of their care in their own hands, I’m glad to be able to reassure the large number of you who have put in action, in your daily lives, the measures for preventing and accompanying the treatment of cancer that I describe in my book have decided to follow the recommendations of Anticancer, that our work also has the support of one of the most reputable cancer specialists in the world.
Prof. Dr. Mendelsohn’s letteremail: "I found Anticancer to be a highly readable and well-researched book. It provides the understanding needed for the practice of evidence-based cancer prevention and risk reduction. It also fills an important gap in our knowledge of how patients can contribute to their own care by supplementing conventional medical treatment. I recommend this book for anyone interested in preventive medicine and integrative, complementary approaches to patient care."
