There are a range of books that describe individual ways of dealing with cancer. There are books by folks who used alternative methods that are fully described (sometimes self-published).

Virginia Soffa who was involved in advocacy as well as the use of alternatives wrote a book entitled "The Journey Beyond Breast Cancer" which combines both of the above approaches. (died of breast cancer, 2003)

Some books will overstate their particular position. I often feel some books would have made excellent magazine articles. I read "Dressed To Kill" by Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer which is about tight bras and the lymph system. I believe they have a good point, but it is not likely to be the cause of all breast cancer.

Likewise "The Cure For All Cancers" probably has a good point to make, but is very overstated. Still, getting checked or treated for parasites, including liver and intestinal flukes is probably a good thing to do.
