Summary
  • "Author Dr. Jason Fung returns with a biography of cancer in which he offers a radical new paradigm for understanding cancer and issues a call to action for reducing risk moving forward"--
  • Our understanding of cancer is slowly undergoing a revolution, allowing for the development of more effective treatments. For the first time ever, the death rate from cancer is showing a steady decline-- but the 'War on Cancer' has hardly been won. Fung explains what cancer is, how it manifests, and why it is so challenging to treat. He identifies the medical community's many missteps in cancer research, and provides a new paradigm for dealing with cancer, with recommendations for what we can do to create a hostile soil for this dangerous seed. -- adapted from Amazon info
