Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Citing static survival rates, the medical establishment's support of "proven cures" including chemotherapy and its refusal to fund research into other therapies, Moss reveals that the medical establishment favors drug companies, carcinogen-causing and pollution-causing industries rather than potential and actual patients. PW called this a "tough-minded updated version of his 1980 The Cancer Syndrome ."

By Theresa Welsh on October 3, 2005
Format: Paperback
The "war on cancer" is being lost and this book gives the primary reasons why. The current treatments - mainly chemotherapy and radiation - are largely ineffective and so toxic people often die from their treatment rather than their disease. There's been nothing new from the research community in decades, and the number of cancer victims keeps rising. Ralph W. Moss worked at one of the most prestigious cancer research and treatment facilities in the US - Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York. He quit when that institution deliberately misled the press and public about test results for a promising treatment. That treatment was the much-maligned laetrile (vitamin B-17) that was finally banned by the FDA and its proponents forced underground. Interestingly, Moss reports that Sloan-Kettering's most respected researcher, Kanematsu Sugiura, stood by the efficacy of laetrile until his death.

In The Cancer Industry, Moss shows how institutions like Sloan-Kettering pick and choose what to test and how to test it, and operate with a bias toward those methods that are the favorites of their financial backers, even to the point of disregarding their own researchers, as they did with Dr. Sugiura. The medical staff at Sloan-Kettering had a bias toward chemotherapy, since their Board of Directors included corporate bigwigs whose business interests benefited from chemo profits, which are enormous.

Another promising treatment, hydrazine sulfate, suffered the same fate as laetrile, even though its backers had considerable success with it. Unlike chemo, which generally makes the patient sicker, hydrazine sulfate works by building the patient's strength.

Moss has written a provocative book about how various factions in the cancer industry have become corrupted by the old, familiar struggle for money and power.
One of the more interesting chapters deals with the battle between a brilliant researcher in Houston named Stanislaw Burzynski and the cancer industry establishment. Members of the establishment are portrayed as favoring the use of patentable chemicals or synthetic drugs over any natural methods of treatment , such as that pioneered by Burzynski.
In discussing the cancer establishment Moss explains the make-up and activities of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, The American Cancer Society, The National Cancer Institute and The Food and Drug Administration.
My experience in reading this book has left me with even less trust in the people and organizations responsible for waging this country's war on cancer.

This book by an ex cancer insider at the Sloan Kettering institute details all of the alternative therapies which have been railroaded by the cancer establishment. An interesting read for anyone who has the nagging feeling that the cancer war is being lost because pharmaceutical companies are avoiding possible natural, non patentable cures,

I compare this book to the "cancer" of Fast Food Nation. Why? Because you understand the why's, how's, and will probably get good and angry by the time you're done. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone going through cancer, or even their family members (would hit a lot of nerves you may not want to touch during times of emotional stress), but when you're loved ones are healthy and you feel like putting up a good fight, this will certainly give you something to go by.

As a health care professional, I try to read books with an open mind, especially those pertaining to my industry. I feel this was a balanced, fair representation of what is going on in our health care industry, especially as relates to cancer. In and of itself, cancer is scary. Combined with the health industry, you want to bury your head.

Ralph Moss does an excellent job documenting the fraud and deception that has been going on in healthcare for years. This is a must read for cancer patients and anyone looking to educate themselves about the truth concerning the "business with disease!" Millions of people are dying needlessly due to the war on information going on the this country.

There are a number of alternative healing therapies that work so well and cost so little when compared to conventional treatment, that Organized Medicine, the Food & Drug Administration, and their overlords in the Pharmaceutical Industry (The Big Three) would rather the public not know about them. The reason is obvious: alternative, non-toxic therapies represent a potential loss of billions of dollars to allopathic medicine and drug companies. The Big Three have collectively engaged in a medical collusion for over 70 years to influence legislative bodies at both the federal and state levels. The ultimate objective of which has been, and still is, to produce regulations that encourage the use of drug medicine while simultaneously creating restrictive, controlling mechanisms (licensing, government approval, etc) designed to limit and stifle the availability of non-drug, alternative modalities. If your goal is to empower yourself with life-saving knowledge, "The Cancer Industry" is for you.
