It sounds almost too good to be true, yet it's scientific fact: you can protect yourself against cancer, heart disease, and diabetes—or stop them in their tracks—by eating the right foods. Now everything you need to know about how to eat to live and stay well is here, in Permanent Remissions.

What's the secret to life-extending nutrition? Phytonutrients. These potent disease-fighting compounds, found in vegetables, fruits, herbs, and other foods, play a key role in combating our country's biggest killers. You'll learn how to use familiar foods such as tomato sauce, garlic, oatmeal, and grapefruit to stay well, and how to incorporate the latest "designer" food products into your eating plan. Permanent Remissions shows you how phytonutrients can:

Arrest the development of cancer cells Block testosterone and estrogen from promoting cancer cell growth Prevent tumors from spreading by choking off their blood supply Detoxify environmental carcinogens Reverse coronary artery disease Reduce or eliminate the need for insulin injections for type 11 (adult-onset) diabetes Boost the effectiveness of conventional cancer treatments and reduce their toxic side effects Replace lost bone minerals in people suffering from osteoporosis

One of the most amazing aspects of this breakthrough program is that it's not only designed to reduce significantly the probability of ever contracting serious illness, but also to help stop its progress—and, in some cases, eradicate the disease completely. No other book offers the extensive research and medically documented proof of the incredible capacity of phytofoods to defeat cancer and other serious health problems. And, although phytonutrients have prevented and reversed cancer and other diseases in laboratory animals, their remarkable potential to help people achieve long-term remissions from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis has not been widely disseminated. Until now.

Robert Haas, M.S., the nutritionist who revolutionized the science of sports nutrition with his No. 1 bestseller, Eat to Win, is renowned for helping athletes and entertainers like Martina Navratilova, Don Johnson, Carly Simon, Glenn Frey, Mike Nichols, and Cher look and feel their best. Now he goes a giant step further with Permanent Remissions. Haas knows what he's talking about: with his cutting-edge nutritional plan he has already helped hundreds of people maintain excellent health or achieve that state of grace known as permanent remission.
