The book delves into the history of medicine--all the way back to Hippocrates's credo of "do no harm"--as well as up-to-the-minute research that proves the efficacy of dozens of advanced cancer treatments being used around the globe. Bollinger arms readers with essential, sometimes startling information about: The history and politics of cancer The takeover of medical education by special interests and for-profit agendas How some life-saving treatments have been kept from the public--and why Treatment options that go well beyond chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery"To us this is not a business, it's a mission," he explains.
