9780895033543: Cancer-gate: How to Win the Losing Cancer War (Policy, Politics, Health and Medicine Series)

Award-winning author, Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., whose 1978 book ""The Politics of Cancer"" shook the political establishment by showing how the federal government had been corrupted by industrial polluters, has written a book that is sure to be of equal consequence. ""Cancer-Gate: How to Win the Losing Cancer War"" 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.These institutions, Epstein alleges, have spent tens of billions of taxpayer and charity dollars primarily targeting silver-bullet cures, strategies that have largely failed, while virtually ignoring strategies for preventing cancer in the first place. As a result, cancer rates have escalated to epidemic proportions, now striking nearly one in every two men, and more than one in every three women. This translates into approximately 50 percent more cancer in men, and 20 percent more cancer in women over the course of just one generation.

About the Author:

Dr. Epstein is Professor Emeritus of Environmental and Occupational Medicine at the School of Public Health, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition. He is an internationally recognized authority on the causes and prevention of cancer, and has published some 270 scientific articles and 11 books, including the prize-winning The Politics of Cancer (1978), The Safe Shopper's Bible (1995), The Breast Cancer Prevention Program and The Politics of Cancer Revisited (both 1998).

Dr. Epstein is the recipient of many prizes and awards, including the 2005 Albert Schweitzer Golden Grand Medal for Humanitarianism. He is a member of the National Writers Union, AFL-CIO, and the National Association of Science Writers.

Review:

Cancer-Gate is simply magnificent-a battle cry for activists to reclaim the failing war against cancer. -- Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D., President, Cancer Communications, Inc., Lemont, Pennsylvania, Director, The Moss Reports, and Author, The Cancer Industry

If we had taken Epstein's advice on prevention 30 years ago we would not be facing this tragedy today. -- Frank D. Wiewel, Founder, People Against Cancer

This book is a must for every public health student and professional. -- Quentin D. Young, M.D., Chairman, Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, Past President, American Public Health Association
