The evidence is in: you can reduce cancer risk and support treatment by focusing on six key areas of health and wellness. The scientific data on the link between lifestyle, environmental factors, and cancer risk has been accumulating at an accelerated rate over the past decade: Every week we learn something more that we can do as individuals to decrease the risk of can­cer and improve the likelihood of long-term survival. Many of us—patients and doctors included—do not realize that changes in our daily choices and habits can improve quality of life, increase the chances of survival, and aid in the healing process for those with a diagnosis. These ideas were pioneered in David Servan-Schreiber’s Anticancer: A New Way of Life, and became the basis for a research study developed by Lorenzo Cohen and Servan-Schreiber at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Introducing the concept of the “Mix of Six,” Cohen and Alison Jefferies make an informed case that building social and emotional support; manag­ing stress; improving sleep, exercise, and diet; and minimizing exposure to environmental toxins work together to promote an optimal environment for health and well-being. While each plays an inde­pendent role, the synergy created by all six factors can radically transform health; delay or prevent many cancers; support conventional treatments; and significantly improve quality of life—as many testi­monies and stories of those in the anticancer com­munity eloquently show. Anticancer Living provides an accessible, pre­scriptive guide to wellness based on the latest scien­tific findings and clinical trials, and it showcases the community of doctors, researchers, caregivers, and patients who have been inspired to create change.

Robert Redford ist der umschwärmte Frauenliebling des amerikanischen Films. Mit ihm verbinden wir Kino-Highlights wie »Der Clou«, »Der große Gatsby«, »Jenseits von Afrika« und »Aus nächster Nähe«. Sein Privatleben hat Redford immer vor der Öffentlichkeit abgeschirmt. In dieser großen Biographie tritt nun der Mensch Robert Redford erstmals ins Rampenlicht. Es ist das facettenreiche Porträt des Filmstars, Regisseurs und Produzenten, der als Jugendlicher der familiären Enge nach Europa entfloh und unter schwierigen Bedingungen seine Schauspielerkarriere begann; die bewegende Lebensschau des Förderers des unabhängigen Films und politisch engagierten Umweltschützers, der sich vehement für alte amerikanische Werte wie Toleranz und Offenheit einsetzt und mit seiner deutschen Frau, der Künstlerin Sibylle Szaggars, fernab des Hollywood-Glamours in den Bergen von Utah lebt.

Wie sehr das Leben leuchtet, auch in seinen dunkelsten Momenten. "Sterben ist nicht das Ende der Welt", hat ihre Mutter einmal gesagt. Doch erst jetzt beginnt Nina Riggs den Satz zu verstehen: Mit 38 Jahren hat sie unheilbar Krebs, die Ärzte geben ihr noch 18 bis 36 Monate. Wie lebt man ein Leben, dessen Ende feststeht, das aber dennoch gelebt werden will? Wie macht man Pläne für den Urlaub, wie spricht man mit den Kindern, und wie ist man weiterhin eine liebende Partnerin? Nina Riggs hat ein Buch geschrieben über ihre letzten Monate, das keine Krankengeschichte ist und keine heldenhafte Kampfansage an den Krebs. Es ist ein Buch über den Zweifel und die Angst, aber auch über die unendliche Schönheit des Augenblicks und den beharrlichen Blick nach vorn. Es ist ein Buch darüber, wie sehr das Leben leuchtet, auch in seinen dunkelsten Momenten.

In den letzten Jahren hat sich in den Neurowissenschaften eine radikale Umwälzung vollzogen. Die neuen Erkenntnisse über das Zusammenspiel von Körper und Geist in eine "Medizin der Emotionen" zu überführen, ist das Ziel des Neurologen und Psychiaters David Servan-Schreiber. Stress, Angst und Depression sind heilbar - und zwar ohne Medikamente und jahrelange Psychotherapie. Im Inneren des Gehirns befindet sich ein "emotionales Gehirn", das alle Funktionen kontrolliert, die unser psychisches Wohlbefinden beeinflussen, und einen Großteil der Körperfunktionen wie Herz, Blutdruck, Hormone, das Verdauungs- und Immunsystem dazu. Ist das System im Gleichklang, wachsen uns ungeahnte Kräfte zu; gerät es aus der Balance, sind Stress, Ängste und Depressionen die Folge. Durch bestimmte Methoden, die auf den Körper einwirken, lassen sich die Mechanismen der Selbstheilung nutzen, über die das emotionale Gehirn verfügt.
