David Servan-Schreiber was a young doctor and neuroscientist when he was diagnosed with brain cancer. After it recurred and he had gone through the standard treatment, he combed the medical literature to find ways to strengthen his defenses against its return. The evidence-based approaches he uncovered can benefit all of us as we attempt to reduce our risk of developing cancer.
