9781557780751: The Cancer Industry: Unraveling the Politics

An investigation into the inner workings of the cancer medical establishment exposes the inadequacies of traditional cancer therapies and examines in detail the many unorthodox treatments

From Publishers Weekly:

Although the last decade has seen important developments in the care of cancer patients, Moss argues that there is little change in the disease's survival rates, and challenges the medical establishment's continued support of "proven cures"--surgery, radiation and chemotherapy--and its refusal to fund research for nutrition-based, holistic and other therapies (including controversial laetrile). In this tough-minded updated version of his 1980 The Cancer Syndrome , Moss further charges that the dearth of research by cancer centers reflects the economic interests of board members drawn from carcinogen- and pollution-causing industries (tobacco, oil, chemicals), as well as of drug company executives. Also lambasted is the Food and Drug Administration for its allegedly obstructionist regulations regarding clinical testing. Photos not seen by PW.

From Library Journal:

This is an updated edition of The Cancer Syndrome ( LJ 2/15/80), the classic expose which investigated the suppression of unorthodox cancer research by the government and the medical establishment. There is extensive new material here, particularly regarding Lawrence Burton's immuno-augmentative therapy and Stanislaw Burzynski's antineoplaston research; other chapters are updated as well. Libraries which do not own the earlier edition should acquire this, as the subject of how politics and research intersect has gained fresh interest in the age of AIDS. Where the earlier edition is held, this should be acquired if subject demand warrants.
