How to Live Longer and Feel Better

Copyright 2006, Oregon State University Press ISBN 978-0870710964

by Dr. Linus Pauling

First published in 1986, this is the twentieth anniversary edition.

From the Introduction: "This book discusses some simple and inexpensive measures that you can take to lead a better and longer life, with greater enjoyment and fewer illnesses.  The most important recommendation is that some vitamins be taken every day to supplement the vitamins that you get in your food.  The best amounts of the supplementary vitamins and the best way to take them are discussed in the first chapters of the book, and the reasons for taking them are discussed in the following chapters."

This is the book that captivated me about nutrition.  Dr. Pauling states his case clearly and most convincingly in a very easy to read style.  My top recommendation.

Please read my full review here.

Kedar Prasad is the director of the Center for Vitamins and Cancer Research at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He is a leading researcher and proponent of the value of antioxidants in the fight against cancer. He is also a leader for our side in the controversy concerning antioxidants and their possible negative impact on chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

His book explains cancer basics and the important role of nutrition to support the body's fight against cancer.

ISBN  0-393-50000-4

by Ewan Cameron, M.B., Ch.B., F.R.C.S. (Glasgow), F.R.C.S. (Edinburgh) and Linus Pauling, Ph.D.

"A discussion of the nature, causes, prevention, and treatment of cancer with special reference to the value of Vitamin C"

For anyone interested in the use of Vitamin C for the prevention and treatment of Cancer, this is the best.  Also includes a comprehensive discussion about cancer and conventional therapies.


Vitamin C Against Cancer

Copyright 1979, Stein & Day  ISBN  0-8128-2693-0

by H.L. Newbold

Newbold relates his own experience and discussions from practitioners of Vitamin C therapy as well as practitioners of the conventional modalities. For anyone involved with cancer this is very interesting.

Beating Cancer with Nutrition

Copyright 2001, Bookworld Services  ISBN  0-9638-3728-1

by Patrick Quillin with Noreen Quillin

Dr. Quillin covers the gamut of nutritional therapies for cancer. While you know my focus is vitamin C, this book is a terrific resource that looks at most all aspects of nutrition, cancer and the body's chemistry. It is a valuable addition to the resources that focus on vitamin C.

Cancer as a Turning Point

Copyright 1989, Penguin Group ISBN 0-452-26419-7

by Lawrence LeShan, Ph.D.

"It is difficult to think of anyone with cancer...who will not profit from this book."  -Norman Cousins

OK, this is not about Vitamin C, but it is fascinating to read about this therapists experience with cancer and state of mind.  I also recommend his previous work, You can Fight for Your Life as well as the books by Norman Cousins.

Close to the Bone: Life Threatening Illness and the Search for Meaning

Copyright 1998, Touchstone Books ISBN 0684835304

by Jean Bolen

This is a marvelous book that is beautifully written. Dr. Bolen discusses humans as spiritual beings on a human journey rather than human beings on a spiritual journey. This book makes you explore who you really are and what it is to be a human being. I recommend this to everyone, life threatening illness not required.

Questioning Chemotherapy: A Critique of the Use of Toxic Drugs in the Treatment of Cancer

Copyright 2000, Equinox Press ISBN 1-881025-25-X

by Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D.

Ralph Moss is one of the most knowledgeable experts concerning cancer therapy. This book takes a hard look at the "progress" of chemotherapy. Dr. Moss writes "I started as a believer in chemotherapy. As a science writer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, I wrote articles praising the latest advances in chemotherapy. I was impressed by the then-emerging cures for Hodgkin's disease, acute lymphocytic leukemia and some other relatively rare cancers. At the same time, I began to learn how skeptical many good scientists..."

Another single page that discusses vitamin C and cancer. I like this page because it stresses the importance of very high doses. From the top of the page:

This article tells how Ascorbate (Vitamin C) helps to cure cancer. Vitamin C also helps to kill germs in the blood of HIV-infected people. The Bowel Tolerance Test tells you how much Ascorbate your body needs.



This site has information about nutrition and cancer.  However, they sell nutritional products "providing optimal nutrition support for the immune compromised patient".
