This is an award winning book written by Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee who is an assistant professor of medicine at Columbia University.
The book does not provide any information as to how to treat any cancer. However, it gives cancer patients a vital message regarding the current orthodox cancer treatments. That is, surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy do not provide any cure for any cancer, meaning that they could not eradicate cancer from patients. After rounds of treatments, the cancer will come back sooner or later, and then no drugs could stop it from killing the patients.
Many cancer patients naively think that doctors are their best helpers whom they can use to help defeat their cancers. Blindly trusting oncologists could lead them to give up other opportunities such as seeking and using alternative cancer treatments many of which have proved to be effective at curing cancer.
Like many other books on cancer treatments, this book does not mention a word on cancer biology or physiology or anticancer nutrition. Do not blame doctors for lack of knowledge in nutrition. They do not receive any training in nutrition even though often times they pretend to know everything and acts like your God.
Any trials involve three elements – cancer, drugs and patients. Unfortunately, few doctors who conduct the trial know much of any or all of them. The book is all about how doctors have been trying to try and err to find an effective treatment. Not much talking about cancer per se. The one and only strategy the cancer doctors involved in trials have been using is to try the highest dosage of chemotherapy possible to kill as many cancer cells as possible. A deadly strategy in some cases leads to killing the patients before the cancer has a chance to kill the patient.
The message this book delivers is that no current orthodox treatments could cure any cancer.
