A while back, I viewed the movie, Crazy Sexy Cancer, by Kriss Carr. I thought it was really interesting; she changed her lifestyle to survive cancer. (She also fell in love and married her cameraman. Cool!) (I think I should make a movie on a different subject; I will need a camera-women! LOL.)
A really memorable statement that she makes is, Food is your Medicine. I have been keeping this in mind as I try to improve my own diet. If I am willing to pay $5 for a desert, I certainly can pay a bit more for better quality and healthier foods.
Kriss Carr has also written books and has a website and blog.
Additionally, I really like the book, Anticancer, by David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD. The author, also a cancer survivor, has written about foods and habits that can help one to survive cancer or prevent it. An updated edition has just recently been released.
And I really like the book, Healthy at 100, by John Robbins. It looks at the diets and habits of the longest living peoples on Earth. (See also, The Blue Zones, by Dan Buettner and www.bluezones.com)
