“Victor Shane in Millennial Medicine presents a strong and detailed argument that the attack on the plague of cancer should be aimed at what many believe is its root cause: the malfunctioning of the cell’s repair mechanism, the mitochondria. Shane then associates this malfunctioning as due to the mitochondria receiving malnutrition, the junk foods and processed foods that we feed it. An interesting nuance in the search for a cure.”
—Gerald L. Schroeder, Ph.D., Jerusalem, Israel
“In his wide-ranging book, Shane skillfully points out the mounting empirical evidence that modern nutritional deficits may contribute to cancer and clearly offers some valuable advice about healthy eating and lifestyles.”
