Sinopsis: Although Dr. Cason ranks as a Professor of Organic Chemistry and has taught at three major universities, his most notable accomplishment is derived from a lifelong humanitarian mission to improve the health and welfare of mankind. This has shaped his career and his lifestyle; to many he is considered an iconoclast because of his frequent espousal of unpopular and disputed theses. Several chapters here reveal how his activism has shaped the causes that he champions.
Iconoclasm is not without its consequences. Often criticized by those most impacted by his views, some of whom were friends, Dr. Cason has steadfastly held firm to his beliefs, knowing that a resistance to change is an instinctively human frailty, a flaw he contemptuously ascribes to his critics who are likely to be the most affected by his views.
Chapter 15, "The Cancer Controversy," shows the depth of his energized commitment, zeal, and stubbornness and supplies an in your face blanket of irritation for all his critics.
Dr. Cason's lifetime grieving for the hundreds of thousands who annually succumb to cancer has fortified his resolve to confront those who so stridently doubt his mission. With unperturbed calm and unflagging resolve, Dr. Cason continues to promote his causes and wage war with his critics.
