Today on "Diva's House feat "Literary Diva Of Blogtalk Radio, author Patricia Dean-Escoto was the featured guest.
Patricia joined us in discussing her book; "The Top Ten Superfoods For Preventing Breast Cancer."
It was a very informative and educational show geared toward the hot topic of cancer.
The discussion was invigorating as Patricia talked about the body and how it's ability to heal itself is what all individuals who have breast cancer or may have a great chance of getting breast cancer should believe in. She went on to talk about preventative measures and what most women should do if they have a chance in getting the disease.
When asked about the naysayers saying "you can't prevent cancer", Patricia shut them down with her response, which you have to listen to the episode to hear!
Patricia's book consist of preventative measures one can take to possibly keep from getting the disease or being infected with the disease again. It includes a 7 day meal plan with over 40 recipes that one can follow.
The book in itself is one that has opened my eyes as a woman. In chatting with Patricia today, I learned a great deal in preventing cancer, but not only that, I learned a great deal about the food industry as well as everyday products we may use in our daily lives that can possibly contribute to many of us developing cancer.
All in all it was fantastic show!
You can buy Patricia's book on Amazon or where ever books are sold.

(Reuters)-Seminal American author Philip Roth, whose novels explored modern Jewish-American life, has told a French magazine that he will write no more books because he has lost his passion for it.
The author of such novels as "American Pastoral", for which he won a Pulitzer Prize, and "Portnoy's Complaint" slipped his retirement announcement into an interview last month with French magazine Les Inrocks.
On Friday, Houghton Mifflin confirmed his decision. "He told me it was true," said Lori Glazer, executive director of publicity at the publisher.
Roth, 79, one of the world's most revered novelists and a frequent contender for the Nobel Prize for Literature, said he had not written for three years.
"To tell you the truth, I'm done," Roth was quoted as telling Les Inrocks. "'Nemesis' will be my last book," he said of his 2010 short novel set against a fictional polio epidemic in Newark, New Jersey, in 1944.
The novella "Goodbye, Columbus" catapulted Roth onto the American literary scene in 1959 with its satirical depiction of class and religion in American life. Published along with five other short stories, it won the National Book Award in 1960. He again received that award in 1995 for "Sabbath's Theater."
Roth, who has written some 25 novels, told Les Inrocks that he had always found writing difficult and that he wanted nothing more to do with reading, writing or talking about books.
He said that when he was 74, he started re-reading his favorite novels by authors Ernest Hemingway, Ivan Turgenev, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and others, and then re-read his own novels.
"I wanted to see whether I had wasted my time writing," he explained. "After that, I decided that I was done with fiction. I no longer want to read, to write, I don't even want to talk about it anymore," he was quoted as saying.
"I have dedicated my life to the novel: I studied, I taught, I wrote, I read - to the exclusion of almost everything else. Enough is enough! I no longer feel this fanaticism to write that I have experienced all my life. The idea of trying to write again is impossible," Roth told the magazine.
Roth's four most recent novels, "Everyman," "Indignation," "The Humbling" and "Nemesis", have been short works, often focusing on ageing, physical decline, depression and death.
New Jersey-born Roth is best known for his semi-autobiographical and unreliable alter-ego Nathan Zuckerman, who appeared in nine of his novels.
Roth told Les Inrocks that he had spent most of his time in recent years preparing material for his biographer, Blake Bailey. "If I had a choice, I would prefer that there is no biography written about me, but there will be biographies after my death so (I wanted) to be sure that one of them is correct,"
Roth was quoted as saying.
Roth said he had asked his literary executors and his agent to destroy his personal archives after his death once Bailey has finished the biography. "I don't want my personal papers hanging around everywhere," he said.
Fabulous, fantastic, and interesting are what literature truly represents! Here are some "quick lit bites" to get you motivated and inspired to read, write, and immerse yourself in literature.

The Red Book"aka" Liber Novus-is a 205-page manuscript written and illustrated by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung between approximately 1914 and 1930, prepared for publication by The Philemon Foundation and published by W.W. Norton & Co. on October 7, 2009. Until 2001, his heirs denied scholars access to the book, which he began after a falling-out with Sigmund Freud in 1913. Jung originally titled the manuscript Liber Novus (literally meaning A New Book in Latin), but it was informally known and published as The Red Book. The book is written in calligraphic text and contains many illuminations.
Carl G Jung-was a Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist who founded analytical psychology. Jung proposed and developed the concepts of the extraverted and the introverted personality, archetypes, and the collective unconscious. His work has been influential in psychiatry and in the study of religion, literature, and related fields.
