    MONTREAL, Sept. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Editions du Trécarré congratulates
authors Dr. Richard Béliveau and Dr. Denis Gingras for the outstanding success
of their books, Les Aliments contre le cancer and Cuisiner avec les aliments
contre le cancer. In Québec, Les Aliments contre le cancer was published in
2005 and has now reached the 200,000-copy mark. The second volume, launched
last year, Cuisiner avec les aliments contre le cancer, will soon surpass the
100,000-copy mark.
    After reaching the top of the best-seller charts here, Les Aliments
contre le cancer has had an equally stunning success in other countries, a
major event for Québec's publishing world. In fact, the work has been
translated into 19 languages and has appeared in more than 25 countries. In
2008, the book will be published in China, Croatia, Denmark, Greece,
Indonesia, the Czech Republic and Slovenia.
    The two researchers' second book, prepared in collaboration with the
Serge-Bruyère Foundation, Cuisiner avec les aliments contre le cancer, has
also remained high on best-seller lists. This book on cancer deals with food,
and it has become a work of reference. Gathered from the world's great
kitchens, the recipes have delighted the general public for their finesse and
ease of preparation. And now, the English version, Cooking with Foods that
Fight Cancer, will be published by Toronto publisher McClelland & Stewart on
October 16.
    Quebecers have literally fallen in love with Dr. Béliveau for his
no-nonsense message about the importance of a varied diet of fruit and
vegetables and the preventive impact such a diet can have against cancer. For
two-and-a-half years now, Quebecers have exhibited a real passion for green
tea, cabbage, dark chocolate, small fruits and tumeric. This interest in
prevention is mainly due to the popularity of Les Aliments contre le cancer,
but especially because cancer affects one in three people in Canada. In 2007,
41,000 new cancer cases were diagnosed in Québec, and 19,500 people died of
the disease. Cancer is the number one cause of death in Québec.

    Richard Béliveau, a leading light in the realm of cancer, holds the chair
in cancer prevention and treatment at the Université du Québec à Montréal,
where he is a professor of biochemistry. He also teaches in the medical
faculty of the Université de Montréal (surgery and physiology departments) and
is director of the molecular medicine laboratory of the hemato-oncology
department of the Charles-Bruneau cancer pavilion of Hôpital Sainte-Justine,
in Montréal.

    Denis Gingras is a researcher who specializes in oncology at the
molecular medicine laboratory of the hemato-oncology department of Hôpital
Sainte-Justine, in Montréal.
