Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Probably the most frightening look inside the healthcare vs big pharmaceutical industries ever written. We all know that the Congress contains some of the best politicians that money can buy but to read actual accounts of what is already known to true researchers and denied to the public about how much cancer could be prevented kept me up reading this book all night. Knowledge is a powerful tool and I've learned NOT to ever trust the FDA for anything.

Professor Samuel Epstein has written a gripping, informative, thought provoking and confronting book that provides a graphic insight into the machinations, incestuous and pecuniary relationships, of hypocrisy at its extreme indifference, and nonsensical 'spin' of the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society and the Federal Drugs Administration.

It is disturbing to realize that money is the greatest motivator and cancer is too big a business to readily find a cure.

Great update-- looks readable and well-organized. Not to say there aren't worthy predecessor books by Ralph Moss, etc., etc. - Wish I had time to read things like this . . .
