Keeping aBreast: Ways to PREVENT Breast Cancer

formerly "Keeping aBreast: Ways to Stop Breast Cancer"

By Khalid Mahmud, MD


As a hematologist-oncologist who practiced for nearly forty years, I read Keeping aBreast with considerable interest. Although the book is targeted primarily at women, it is a book that health care professionals should find extremely valuable as a source of information. This is especially true for oncologists, primary-care physicians, gynecologists and nurse practitioners.

The book provides many useful tips on how to prevent breast cancer without the use of drugs, relying instead on the role of nutrition, supplements and natural hormones. Using many scientific references, the author clarifies the differences between progesterone and progestin (the former being beneficial to a woman's heart and bone health and preventive against breast cancer, while the latter is detrimental). He does the same for many other hormones that affect the quality of women's lives.

The author's explanation of the complicated hormonal changes that occur as a woman ages are excellent. His recommendations as to how to deal with these changes in a natural way are informative and proactive. The illustrations are masterful, cleverly done and very informative.

This book is an excellent reference for anyone involved in women's health issues.

— James L. McKenna, MD, FACP
