I have been doing research on cancer related treatments for many years. I have purchased a great many book and read thousands of articles on both conventional and "alternative" methods. Although there is a great deal of material in this book and as such is quite comprehensive, it falls short in many ways. This book seems to be similar to much of the "official" published material on alternative medicine. Most products that been shown time and again to help with cancer are given a look warm review with a "need for more research" . Many herbs and herbal compounds that are being used in many centers such as MD Andersohn in Houston, when reviewed by the researcher are far more positive than those that appear in this book. Dr. aron Katz at NYC Columbia presbyterian is a strong advocate on the integrated use of herbal mediicine and has been using, for example, Zyflamned from New Chapter for many years.
Similarly, dr Gonzalez has been incredibly successful with pancreatic cancer and has stage IV survivors of more than 10 years. The best this book acan do is "the potential benefits... are intriguing and need to be studied further".
A short half page is dedicated to pulsed electromagnetic frequensies as opposed to the over 900 page textbook on the subjet as well as the hundreds of pages available from other sources. The NASA published a 30 page document on the beneficial power of PEMFs including cancer back in 2003.
I could find no mention of DCA nor low-dose naltrexone the latter having been successfully used for many cancers.
Hypnosis gets about 1 paragraph with no discussion of its success in the field.
No mention (at least in the index) is made of hyperthermia which is widely used in European cancer centers
especially in Germany, Denmark and Switzerland. I had a friend who developed colon cancer 9over 30 years ago) and used hyperthermia alone to completly eliminate the rapidly growing tumor.
In short, the Boik book and the Murray book are far more open and supportive of alternative medicine amongst many others.

BOTTOM LINE: DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.
