"Cancer is the second most common cause of death, claiming over 1500 Americans each day," reports Ms Coker. "Researchers have estimated that 30-60% of all cancers may be prevented by informed food choices. Therefore, it makes sense to align your diet with prevention of this deadly disease however and whenever you can."

Diet and Cancer: Is there a Connection? offers a 10-day eating plan to get people started on eating healthier. The plant-based dietary program promises to help participants lose weight, avert digestive problems, and lower blood cholesterol and lower blood pressure. Step-by-step menu selections are designed to be easy to follow at any level of cooking expertise.

"I have found that when women pick up my book and incorporate its principles into their family diets," confides Ms. Coker, "then the entire family starts to eat better."
