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. Guest: David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD, is a neuroscientist and clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He co-founded the Center for Integrative Medicine there. He is also a founding member of Doctors Without Borders. The Australian Web site he mentioned on the glycemic index of foods is glycemicindex.com. His new book is Anti-Cancer: A New Way of Life.
