Did you know:
· that drinking a glass of red wine and eating olives after sunbathing can reduce lasting skin damage?
· that your choice of deodorant can affect your long-term health?
· that some houseplants are more effective in removing air toxins than others?

In How to Live, Professor Robert Thomas, one of Britain’s leading oncologists and an expert in integrating nutritional and lifestyle strategies into cancer treatment, gives us effective, scientifically proven advice about everything from diet and exercise to sleep and skincare.

As Thomas explains, through achievable changes to our daily routine we can improve the expression of our genes – helping us beat the odds of cancer and chronic disease. We discover, for example, why drinking a glass of red wine after sunbathing can reduce lasting skin damage; and why some houseplants are more effective than others in removing air toxins.

This is a health bible for life. Whether you are in your 20s or 70s, it will help you to empower your body against ageing and degenerative disease and live at maximum strength.


We have no control on the genes we've been dealt - some good and some probably very bad. But we do have the opportunity to modify our environment - how we eat, sleep, exercise and live. This concise guide will enable you construct a plan for yourself. Written by a leading oncologist it is the clearest lifestyle guide I have ever read. Following its wise advice will dramatically reduce your chances of cancer, stroke and dementia - the modern killers. Reading this book could literally change your journey through life.

Full of arresting facts. This book shines a bright light on the path to healthy living using hard evidence and an engaging writing style. The bottom line is that one small lifestyle habit change at a time can achieve better, sometimes outstanding, health outcomes.
