'indispensible reading' - Professor Devra Lee Davies (US National Cancer Institute)

Publication of Jane Plant's book in hardback caused an extraordinary reaction in the press, with widespread coverage across radio, TV and national and regional newspapers. Her message ? that breast cancer can be treated, and even prevented, effectively by simple changes in our diet ? was met with huge acclaim from hundreds of thousands of sufferers of breast cancer around the world.

Jane's personal story, and her own battle against breast cancer, is one part of this important and ground-breaking book. The hundreds of scientific papers she has consulted and referenced, backing up her analysis of the benefits of giving up dairy produce, are another. Perhaps the strongest testimony to her achievement comes from the hundreds of letters and e mails she has received thanking her for producing her message of hope.

'Ground-breaking' - Irish Times

In her recently revised book Your Life in Your Hands, Professor Jane Plant claims that milk, in particular, contains growth factors and hormones that can promote cancer. She therefore advocates changing from dairy to soya products. Such a dietary regime is the norm in Far Eastern countries and Professor Plant points out that even in Hiroshima, the chances of contracting breast cancer are half that of western nations. Only when Chinese and Japanese women move to Europe or the United States does their chance of contracting breast cancer dramatically increase. - Choice
