    1. Interesting take on fighting cancer. I find the book to have valuable insight into food and nutrition. You would need an app to track accurately as to get the fat to carb ratio down it tricky. I do not have cancer, but I decided to give it a try to help someone close to me get through it. It is worth the read for sure.
