Cookbook highlights cancer-fighting foods

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many will reflect on someone who has faced this disease. One way to help prevent cancer, many sources say, is through eating foods with cancer-combating properties.

Just out is "Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen: The Girlfriend's Cookbook and Guide to Using Real Food to Fight Cancer."

The book — by two cancer survivors: Annette Ramke and Kendall Scott — offers more than 100 recipes and a center color insert of more than a dozen of them.

Most recipes are not complicated and focus on using plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Recipes are labeled with what side effects of treatment they may help relieve, such as fatigue.
