The Secret History of the War on Cancer

The Secret History of the War on Cancer
The War on Cancer set out to find, treat, and cure a disease. Left untouched were many of the things known to cause cancer, including tobacco, the workplace, radiation, or the global environment. Proof of how the world in which we live and work affects whether we get cancer was either overlooked or suppressed. This has been no accident. The War on Cancer was run by leaders of industries that made cancer-causing products, and sometimes also profited from drugs and technologies for finding and treating the disease. Filled with compelling personalities and never-before-revealed information, The Secret History of the War on Cancer shows how we began fighting the wrong war, with the wrong weapons, against the wrong enemies-a legacy that persists to this day. This is the gripping story of a major public health effort diverted and distorted for private gain. A portion of the profits from this book will go to support research on cancer prevention.

Disconnect
EVERYONE KNOWS MOBILE PHONES ARE SAFE. IF THEY WEREN'T, WE'D ALREADY KNOW ABOUT IT, RIGHT? That is perhaps the greatest disconnect of our age. As research scientists ate now demonstrating, mobile-phone radiation can damage the human body's cells – leading to memory loss, and increased risk of cancer, reduced sperm counts, and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and possibly even autism. Mobile phones, it seems, are not as safe as we had supposed. In this riveting expose, Dr Devra Davis, respected epidemiologist and founding director of the toxicology and environmental studies board at the United States National Academy of Sciences, clearly outlines the dangers posed by mobile-phone radiation – particularly to children, whose growing brains are especially vulnerable. Drawing o interviews with key players within the trillion-dollar mobile-phone industry and presenting a range of recent and long-suppressed research, Dr Davis makes a compelling case for changing the way we make and use mobile phones. For the close to five billion mobile-phone users worldwide, this truly is essential reading. 'A critically important book that is a must-read for parents and policy makers. A surprising, well-documented, and compelling call for action.' - Phil Lee, MD, former United States assistant secretary of health 'An amazing and important book that must be read to be believed. Are these devices safe for humans? The 'don't ask, don't tell' approach of the industry is irresponsible at best, criminal at worst. Read and learn why and how to protect yourself and your loved ones,' - Mark Hyman, MD, author of The UltraMind Solution and chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine

Cell phone radiation is a national emergency. Scientist Devra Davis presents an array of recent and long-suppressed research which shows that the most popular gadget of our age damages DNA, breaks down the brain's defenses, and reduces sperm count while increasing memory loss, the risk of Alzheimer's disease, and even cancer. The growing brains of children make them especially vulnerable--and half of the world's four billion cell phones are used by people under twenty. Davis takes readers through the dark side of this trillion-dollar industry. Health experts have long been frozen out of policy-making decisions about cell phones; federal regulatory standards are set by the cell phone industry itself. One secret memo reveals their war plan against reports of cell phone dangers. As this call to action shows, we can make safer cell phones now. Why put our children at risk of a devastating epidemic of brain illness?--From publisher description.
