By Samuel S. Epstein M.D.
- Is a groundbreaking new book. It warns that, contrary to three decades of promises, we are losing the winnable war against cancer, and that the hand-in-glove generals of the federal National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the private ?nonprofit? American Cancer Society (ACS) have betrayed us
- The book shows how the NCI and ACS are corroded with major institutional and personal conflicts of interest with cancer drug companies
- How the NCI and ACS are sitting on mountains of information about avoidable environmental causes of cancer rather than making this available to the public in any systematic and understandable way
- Contrary to NCI and ACS claims, the escalating incidence of cancer cannot be explained away by smoking, but is due to avoidable exposures to a multiplicity of environmental carcinogens
