Summary

The president who left the nuclear launch codes in a suit at the dry cleaners. The novelist who put the orange juice outside and the kitten in the refrigerator. The Russian general who left home in full military dress . . . minus his pants. The famous sex goddess who blew the same line through 52 takes. And the rock star who no longer remembers 1975. Filled with classic lapses, gaffes, and mental bloopers, 1,000 Unforgettable Senior Moments is a fabulous and witty gift for anyone of a certain age. And now it is updated, revised with more than 20 percent new stories, and repackaged in two color, making it an even more vibrant, visually appealing, fresh, and compellingly readable book. Anyone who’s ever had a mental lapse will empathize with relative spring chicken Nicki Minaj, who, while accepting a BET Viewers’ Choice Award, forgot why she was receiving the statuette (on live national television, no less). Or the team of astrophysicists who believed they had discovered proof of alien life—only to discover the signals were coming from the lunchroom microwave. Here’s a best man forgetting to show up at the wedding, a musician leaving his priceless cello in a cab, the bank robber who wrote a holdup note on a paycheck stub that had his name and address printed on it, and the Fox studio chief who, when pressed by his leading lady to remember her name, offered “. . . Cleopatra?”

    We have to improve the strength of chemotherapeutic drugs in cancer treatments. On the other hand, these agents have many serious side effects. Although there has been no diet for the patients with cancer, media and authorities still continue to define a clich nutrition program consisting of green leafy vegetables, fish meat, fruits, and olive oil. This clich nutrition may help to protect the healthy consumers against cancer, but the nutrition program or diet changes when it comes to the consumers with cancer. Such a nutrition program can only be designed by evaluating and analyzing the antagonisms and synergisms of the anticancer drug administered and the active food compounds in each food. Only after these detailed evaluations could a nutrition program, which is specific for only the administered anticancer drug, can be designed. The book, which addressed more than three thousand studies in cancer nutrition and screened from Science Direct, CrossRef, Google, and PubMed databases, is a first step to meet this important demand of oncologists, nurses, dietitians, food scientists, and patients with cancer while it is the most detailed review in cancer nutrition currently.
