National Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society: Criminal Indifference to Cancer Prevention and Conflicts of Interest
23 in stock
Samuel S. Epstein, MD.
Despite decades of false assurances, we are losing the winnable war against cancer. The hand-in-glove generals of the NCI and the “nonprofit” ACS have betrayed us. Besides the advice to stop smoking, these institutions have spent tens of billions of taxpayer and charity dollars promoting treatment while ignoring strategies to actually prevent cancer. As a result, cancer rates have escalated to epidemic proportions, now striking nearly one in two men and more than one in three women. Paradoxically and criminally, the more we spend on fighting cancer, the more cancer we develop.
And there is much more. The NCI and ACS are rife with conflicts of interest with the cancer drug industry. This book also details how the NCI and ACS are sitting on mountains of information on avoidable causes of cancer, while failing to act accordingly and make it available to Congress and the public.
In this book you’ll come to understand how to win the war on cancer with strategies including “right-to-know” laws, ensuring public dissemination of critical information on avoidable causes of cancer and congressional reform to ensure that the NCI protects the public, rather than special interests.
