What we eat – and don’t eat – influences our chances of developing cancer. A diet rich in vegetables, fruits, fatty fish, olive oil, garlic, herbs and spices provides compounds that significantly lower our risks. Meanwhile, a typical western diet of processed meat and refined sugar and starch and unhealthy vegetable oils encourages cancer cells to grow. Many of us know about the importance of a healthy diet, but most of us need help building menus that are best for our bodies. Zest for Life, the first cancer-prevention guide based on the traditional Mediterranean diet, gives all the information and practical advice you need for a delicious diet to boost your defences.Inspired by rich and healthy culinary traditions from countries around the Mediterranean – including Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Morocco – Zest for Life celebrates the restorative powers of eating well, with an emphasis on fresh, varied ingredients, simple preparations and conviviality. This is no short-term ‘diet’ involving hunger and deprivation; Zest for Life shows how you can eat delicious, healthy food every day, year after year. The book has a 120-page science section outlining the principles of anti-cancer eating based on the latest medical research and over 160 family-friendly recipes. It addresses not only cancer patients and their carers, but also healthy individuals wishing to boost their defences. Author Conner Middelmann-Whitney’s engaging style and clear writing make this book highly accessible for people of all ages and walks of life. Pragmatic, not preachy, Conner shares her personal cancer story and suggests many simple ways in which anti-cancer eating can fit into busy schedules and tight budgets. Conner is donating 25 per cent of her royalties (32 pence per book sold) to Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres, a UKregistered charity (number SC024414). “We are delighted that Zest for Life is supporting Maggie's,” said Laura Lee, chief executive of Maggie's. “We believe that everyone who is affected by cancer should be given the information and choices they need to live life with, through and beyond cancer. Zest for Life is another important tool in that process.”
