New Book: "Avoiding Cancer One Day At A Time"

Posted Oct 25 2008 4:48pm
Author Lynne Eldridge, M.D., a guest on The Debra Ray Show, has studied human exposure to pesticide and has a family practice with an emphasis on prevention. One in every two American men and one in every three American women will get cancer over the course of their lifetime. The British Cancer Control Society says, "treating disease is enormously profitable, preventing disease is not."

The book has 10 pages of chemicals associated with cancer risk, which is annually published by the State of California and 13 pages of familiar ingredients in our medications and cleaning products, compiled by OSHA. It explains how to avoid these three common indoor air pollutants that can cause cancer.
  • Formaldehyde - found in pressed wood, particle board, air fresheners, wallpaper, and upholstery and other things.
  • Benzene - found in wood stain and varnishes, paint stripper, motor oil, and weed killer.
  • Trichlorethylene - found in paints, varnishes, adhesives, and pesticides.
She recommends avoiding these high-pesticide foods and buying their organic equivalents: apples, grapes, peaches, raspberries, pears, strawberries, celery, potatoes, spinach, baby food, eggs, milk, beef, and chicken. Much more up to date information is found in this book endorsed by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as a cancer prevention resource.
