    1. Great overview of the political economy of cancer. It's amazing to imagine how much courage he has to publish a book on this topic. It's an important exposé of the reality.Although, most writings in each chapters are while ago (the book was published in 2005) thus, most data is outdated, still a good backgrounder for much politicized war against cancer and its relationship with industrial chemicals in the US with detailed analysis of the US 'cancer establishment' and reality check of the histor [...]

    2. The way that this book is written i would almost calssify it as a self help book. obviously just by looking at the title you can tell that its a very political book as well as heavily critical of whats going on today with different cancers for men and women. Cancer-Gate tells you the reader how you can fight back by arming yourself with information that you need to protect yourself. alot of the companies are not so reliable since their pay check relies on what kind of reports they give and even [...]
