Author Biography

Pam Braun, former chef and restaurant owner, was diagnosed in 2004 at the age of 52 with late-stage fallopian tube cancer. She was given a 15% chance of survival and a 75% chance of recurrence.

The fierce determination to do all she could through her cancer journey, in conjunction with traditional medical treatment, compelled her to begin researching the science of food and its relationship to cancer. Her research has led to the development of The Ultimate Anti-Cancer Cookbook, bringing her combined passions for good food and healthful living together. She currently lives happily, healthfully, and cancer-free in Los Angeles.

Whatever you’re in the mood to eat for dinner tonight, you can definitely find it in this book by author Pam Braun. Whatever your tastes and your preferences, there are options for you as well.

The United States in general is having trouble with cancer and also with being overweight. This book is an excellent way to combat both of those things without having to sacrifice the flavors that we all know and love. I know it would be really hard for me to give up dessert completely and this book doesn’t ask you to do that. It’s full of all kinds of flavorful recipes for people with a lot of time or a little. It also has some tips, ideas, and stories scattered throughout the recipes and handy lists of foods to avoid and foods to enjoy. I really liked The Ultimate Anti-Cancer Cookbook by Pam Braun and I am definitely looking forward to trying out a lot of these recipes for myself. After all, everyone can use some assistance in getting healthy and cutting back on all the sugar and additives that most processed foods contain.
