A revised edition with new recipes and updated research on the best foods to eat to fight cancer
A comprehensive, holistic, and practical plan for cancer prevention and recovery, now completely revised and updated.
Grounded in documented research from leading medical institutions—along with studies of the world’s healthiest populations—nutrition educator Verne Varona has developed a breakthrough nutritional and lifestyle program for immunity building and cancer prevention and recovery.
Verne Varona studied Oriental Medicine and cultural folk medicine at the East West Foundation of Boston (1970-1974), and is the 2012 recipient of the Aveline Kushi Lifetime Achievement Award. For more than forty years he has been a highly sought-after speaker and consultant on health, fitness, and motivation.
For five years, he was the nutritional consultant and co-founder of a popular Los Angeles medical group with clientele that featured well-known entertainment and sports professionals. With his physician associate, Verne co-created The ODDS Program (Off Dangerous Drugs Safely); a dietary program designed to reverse pharmaceutical drug dependency using dietary and lifestyle guidelines featured in his books.
He has been a part of educational programs for The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation and The Prostate Cancer Research Institute in Los Angeles. He is founding director of The Exceptional Health Foundation, a non-profit organization developed for promoting principles of holistic health.
Varona is also the author of Macrobiotics for Dummies, a comprehensive work that embraces a flexible, multi-cultural perspective on body, mind, and spiritual health.
A native New Yorker currently residing in New York, Verne is presently involved in creating media projects that document natural disease reversal with physician monitoring.
