The What to Eat if You Have Cancer Cookbook
by Daniella Chace 
The authors intend this cookbook as a companion to their What to Eat If You Have Cancer (1996). Aimed at the 2.5 million Americans who undergo cancer treatment each year, the meatless recipes stress healthy and enjoyable eating while addressing malnutrition and other side effects of conventional cancer therapies. Thus we find such chapters as "Meals in a Glass" for those suffering from loss of appetite or sore mouths or throats, or the individual chapters on cruciferous vegetables and soy foods, both of which contain numerous documented anticancer compounds. Chapter introductions and sidebars discuss the cancer-fighting and other health benefits of particular foods and nutrients, give preparation tips, and describe less-common ingredients. Special food needs for underweight are given detailed consideration, such as recipe options of adding more oil or comparisons of protein powders and other supplements. A list of suppliers and a glossary complete this welcome collection. Penny Spokes
