Sinopsis: Cancer is a global killer. It involves a large group of potentially deadly diseases, as many as 200, that cause an estimated 13 percent of all deaths worldwide. Besides causes and preventions, this thorough look at the disease also includes information about genetic screening and treatments. It answers questions such as what chemotherapy does and what alternatives are available for cancer treatments. Significant breakthroughs including gene therapy and immunotherapy have given us hope for the future of a cancer cure. This absorbing volume addresses many concerns about a topic often in the news that personally touches many lives.

From School Library Journal: Gr 6-9-Some of public medicine's greatest triumphs as well as ongoing struggles are highlighted in these examinations of modern plagues. Historical backgrounds are sketched in, but along with describing each malady's causes and effects, the authors focus chiefly on current incidence, treatments, public awareness campaigns, and research toward cures. Except for several stomach-churning photos of victims in Fighting Smallpox, the illustrations are largely generic, less-than-informative depictions of lab scientists sporting white coats, Third World residents, and melodramatic graphic representations of viruses. Aside from Fighting Cancer-which contains alarmist generalizations about cell phone radiation, a sweeping claim that "men under the age of 30 are particularly at risk from testicular cancer," and an observation that breast removal, à la Angelina Jolie, is an effective preventive measure-these titles nonetheless make serviceable complements and updates for the equivalent titles in Rosen's 2010 series "Epidemics and Society."α(c) Copyright 2014.
