The controversial bestseller from one of health care's most passionate and outspoken advocates that reveals what we need to know about cancer to protect ourselves, treat ourselves, and even save our lives.
After losing seven members of his family to cancer over the course of a decade, Ty Bollinger set out on a global quest to learn as much as he possibly could about cancer treatments and the medical industry that surrounds the disease. As he explains in this book, there are many methods we can access to treat and prevent cancer that go well beyond chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery; we just don't know about them. Now available in paperback for the first time, The Truth about Cancer delves into the history of medicine--all the way back to Hippocrates's credo of "do no harm"--as well as cutting-edge research showing the efficacy of dozens of unconventional cancer treatments that are helping patients around the globe. You'll read about the politics of cancer; facts and myths about its causes; and the range of tools available to diagnose and treat it.
If you're facing a cancer diagnosis right now, this book may help you and your health-care provider make choices about your next steps. If you're already undergoing conventional treatment, it may help you support your health during the course of chemo or radiation. If you're a health-care provider and want to learn all you can to help your patients, it will expand your horizons and inspire you with true stories of successful healing. And if you just want to see cancer in a new light, it will open your eyes.
