A World Without Cancer : The Making of a New Cure and the Real Promise of Prevention
by Margaret I. Cuomo




Overview -
This year, nearly 1.6 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed and more than 1,500 people will die per day. We've been asked to accept the disappointing strategy to manage cancer as a chronic disease. We've allowed pharmaceutical companies to position cancer drugs that extend life by just weeks and may cost $100,000 for a single course of treatment as breakthroughs. Why have we been able to cure and prevent other killer diseases but not most cancers? Where is the bold government leadership that will transform our system from treatment to prevention? Have we forgotten the mission of the National Cancer Act of 1971, to conquer cancer?

Through an analysis of over 40 years of medical evidence and interviews with cancer doctors, researchers, drug company executives, and health policy advisors, Dr. Cuomo reveals frank and intriguing answers to these questions. In A World without Cancer: The Making of a New Cure and the Real Promise of Prevention, she shows us how all cancer stakeholders--the pharmaceutical industry, government, physicians, and concerned Americans--can change the way we view and fight cancer in this country.
