Sintesi dell'editore

A provocative and surprising investigation into the ways that profit, personalities, and politics obstruct real progress in the war on cancer - and one doctor’s passionate call to action

As a diagnostic radiologist who has watched patients, friends, and family suffer with and die from cancer - and who was deeply affected by the enraged husband of one particular patient - Dr. Margaret I. Cuomo has been inspired to seek out new strategies for waging a smarter war on cancer.

About 1.6 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed a year, and more than 1,500 people die each day. We’ve been asked to accept the disappointing strategy to “manage cancer as a chronic disease.” We’ve allowed pharmaceutical companies to position as breakthroughs cancer drugs that extend life by mere weeks and may cost $100,000 for a single course of treatment. Where is the bold leadership that will transform our system from treatment to prevention? Have we forgotten the mission of the National Cancer Act of 1971 to “conquer cancer?”

Through an analysis of more than 40 years of medical evidence and interviews with the top cancer researchers, drug company executives, and health policy advisers, Dr. Cuomo reveals the intriguing answers to these questions. She shows us how all cancer stakeholders - the pharmaceutical industry, the government, physicians, and concerned citizens - can change the way we view and fight cancer in this country.

About the author: Margaret I. Cuomo, MD, is a board-certified radiologist and served as an attending physician in diagnostic radiology at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York, for many years. Specializing in body imaging using CT, ultrasound, MRI, and interventional procedures, much of her practice was dedicated to the diagnosis of cancer and AIDS.

“A grippingly insightful game plan to eradicate cancer…We need to hear and heed Dr. Cuomo’s advice.” (Mehmet Oz, MD,  New York Times best-selling author)
“Two things that I have learned since beginning my nutrition journey are, first, a healthy lifestyle that is good for your heart is also good for all your organs and also helps prevent many forms of cancer. Second, if we do not become more aggressive with prevention strategies, then whatever healthcare system we adopt will be overwhelmed by chronic disease including cancer. That is why I strongly support Dr. Cuomo’s timely and very important message. Three cheers.” (Arthur Agatston, MD, number one  New York Times best-selling author of  The South Beach Diet)
A World without Cancer is an eye-opening look at the way we fight cancer. Margaret Cuomo’s call for bold leadership to transform our system from treatment to prevention is urgent, powerful, and sure to start a national conversation.” ( Arianna Huffington)

Solid facts mixed with misinformation

Many good points about the benefits of the research cooperation and prevention.

Then total nonsense. For example, about sunscreens creams (they may actually contribute to cancer, not protect from it), wearing the darkest sunglasses 🕶 possible (another way to damage your eyesight with pupils opened wider than the time of the day required thus hyper exposure to the wavelengths unfiltered by the glasses). These measures lower production of your own natural sunscreen and you burn more, which leads to higher risks. I don’t even go into the carcinogenic chemicals in the sunscreens.

Or another dangerous, unscientific advice about all girls and boys getting HPV vaccines. Insane! Has the author look at the risk-benefit analysis?! So many lives are needlessly lost and damaged by it. Tragedy!

There are many more unfounded recommendations.

But overall I learned some useful things and feel grateful for the leads in scientific corruption cases in such. So it was worth my time after all to listen to the book.
