YOUR LIFE IN YOUR HANDS - UNDERSTANDING, PREVENTING AND OVERCOMING BREAST CANCER
Jane Plant

*** NEW EDITION published on 9 August 2007 ***

Published by Virgin Books

Publication of Jane Plant's book in hardback caused an extraordinary reaction in the press, with widespread coverage across radio, TV and national and regional newspapers. Her message – that breast cancer can be treated, and even prevented, effectively by simple changes in our diet – was met with huge acclaim from hundreds of thousands of sufferers of breast cancer around the world.

Jane's personal story, and her own battle against breast cancer, is one part of this important and ground-breaking book. The hundreds of scientific papers she has consulted and referenced, backing up her analysis of the benefits of giving up dairy produce, are another. Perhaps the strongest testimony to her achievement comes from the hundreds of letters and e mails she has received thanking her for producing her message of hope.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Your Life in Your Hands tells the story of one woman determined to overcome breast cancer. Jane Plant felt as if she was being stalked by a supernaturally evil killer that, however many times was vanquished, relentlessly kept coming back to attack. The fourth time the breast cancer re-occurred, Jane Plant felt like giving up: "The chill realisation hit me that it wasn't going to let me go until it had claimed my life," she says in her book Your Life In Your Hands. But Plant didn't give up. Instead, tapping into her scientific training, she set about trying to find a rational reason for the breast cancer.

In the UK, one woman in ten is likely to contract the disease. In China, breast cancer affects one woman in 10,000. It was this startling statistical disparity that led Plant to believe there had to be a dietary trigger for the disease. As she continued her scientific investigations, Plant became convinced she had discovered a causal link between dairy produce and breast cancer.

Having made her discovery, Plant immediately adopted a non-dairy diet. Miraculously, her cancer started to subside. Five weeks later it had disappeared completely. While Your Life In Your Hands contains hard science to back its claims, Plant manages to spell out the science in a way that is easy for the uninitiated to understand. Plant's research is solid and the evidence is compelling.

As well as telling the remarkable story of one woman's determination to overcome breast cancer, Your Life In Your Hands offers no-nonsense advice on how to deal with doctors, self-examination and coping with treatment. The book also includes Plant's own non-dairy diet: The Plant Programme--The Lifestyle Factors. Plant's tenacious spirit will inspire you. Her findings will surprise you. And her book will empower you to fight against the odds. --Christopher Kelly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

'Ground-breaking' - Irish Times


In her recently revised book Your Life in Your Hands, Professor Jane Plant claims that milk, in particular, contains growth factors and hormones that can promote cancer. She therefore advocates changing from dairy to soya products. Such a dietary regime is the norm in Far Eastern countries and Professor Plant points out that even in Hiroshima, the chances of contracting breast cancer are half that of western nations. Only when Chinese and Japanese women move to Europe or the United States does their chance of contracting breast cancer dramatically increase. - Choice
