I was born in Selby England in 1937 and moved to and grew up in Maracaibo Venezuela. It is there I met my present wife while she was still in utero as her mother, a nurse, was looking after me while she was pregnant with my wife. My wife and I are sometimes called oil babies. After getting my MD at University of British Columbia I went on after my internship at the Toronto General to take a PhD in biochemistry and neurochemistry at the Montreal Neurological Institute and McGill University.
After finishing my training I taught pharmacology to Medical students, dentistry students and pharmacy in the Department of Pharmacology University of Toronto. I also became a Medical Research Council Scholar. Due to domestic rearrangements, I suddenly had my present wife (who had grown up with me in Venezuela) and five children under the age of eight. At our wedding the children represented the whole audience. Academic life could not financially support this. I moved back to Victoria, British Columbia to start general practice.
My interest in thyroid started over 15 years ago. Also I became interested in Breast Cancer among other things about 10 years ago. I strongly feel we should have theories for medical illnesses even if they are wrong. It stimulates researchers to test the theories and more advances can be made. Other fields of science have many competing theories such as astronomy and physics and mathematics. I feel that medicine would advance faster if there were more theories to test. Over the last 12 years I have formed a library of 5000 reprints and books on breast cancer, thyroid hormone and iodine.
So glad I got this book.
Everyone needs to own a copy of this book. Cancer is not a mystery disease. It has predictable, causative factors. Read more
