There are many books on cancer and CAM issues.

Many books have been written since this site went up in 1999. They are listed below (earliest are first) so make sure you scroll down.

"Making The Right Choice"-Treatment Options in Cancer Surgery" by Richard A. Evans, MD is NOW ENTITLED:

"The Cancer Breakthrough You've Never Heard of" by Richard A. Evans, M.D. (2001) (You can check out his website via the links area) or go to

The book, according to the author now --

1) It has over 100 new references supporting limited surgery.

2) No data to the contrary have been published.

3) No doctors, indeed no one, has found fault with my 1st book after 6 years.

4) The prostate cancer chapter was revised, because much of the cutting edge treatment there is just now be reported in the literature.

5) Two prominent Houston MDs added material .

6) The new preface has a little more punch.

As far as breast cancer, the recent published research has dealt with DCIS. Read this section in appendix II. Have you seen this? 800 patients = 1/2 with XRT. 14 deaths from BC. 10 after XRT, and 4 after NO XRT. The difference is NOT statistically significant, so the powers that be swept it under the rug.


June 2007 NEW BOOK "Complementary Oncology: Adjunctive Methods in the Treatment of Cancer" (Hardcover) by Josef Beuth (Author), Ralph W. Moss (Author) (see other books by Ralph W. Moss at - "Cancer Therapy The Independent Consumer's Guide","Questioning Chemotherapy", "Herbs Against Cancer", and more)

Excerpt from AMAZON review by John F. Wright (whom Annie Appleseed Project does not know)

"Complementary Oncology is an excellent and open minded exploration of treatment options from a conventional medicine point of view. Even though this book is written by German doctors and researchers engaged in providing conventional care, the discussion is primarily on complementary treatment options and exhibits little or no bias.

Research and potential of many aspects such as exercise, nutrition, psychology, thermography, and many other treatments is well presented (although a bit scientific at times)".

Gearin-Tosh teaches English lit at Oxford, was 54 when diagnosed in 1994. You may know of this book:

Gearin-Tosh, Michael Living proof: A medical mutiny.NY:Scribner, 2002." J.M. 2002

"Make Your Own Miracle Surviving Cancer" by Paul Huff, Julie Yenichek and Kim Huff. $14.95 at

From a review: " In this book, Paul has compiled 55 uniquely powerful, healing stories of cancer survivors that demonstrate how the impossible became possible and turned almost certain tragedy into triumph."

Newly recommended, but not new "Recovery From Cancer", Elaine Nussbaum (Avery Publishing Group). From the back cover:

"Despite surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, Elaine's cancer spread to her bones and both lungs. Three years after her initial diagnosis, she had had enough of conventoinal therapies. Elaine stopped all medications and treatments, and began to practice macrobiotics in a last-ditch effort to save her life... Elaine's dramatic and very moving story offers hope to cancer patients everywhere - and adds to the growing evidence that macrobiotics can be effective in the treatment of this insidious disease".

Many more books exist. See the section on breast cancer for other titles on this cancer.

Vegan Soul Kitchen

LINK: ""Vegan Soul Kitchen," by Bryant Terry (Da Capo, $18.95)

As odd as it might sound when considering today's pork and beef staples, traditional African-American cuisine was built on the agrarian foundation of vegetables and legumes. The culinary lineage of black-eyed pea fritters, for example, can be traced back to similar dishes made in western Africa. This book is part cultural exploration and part rediscovery of natural food, with little of the politics normally associated with the vegan lifestyle". From the Tampa Tribune
