A newly released fact-based fiction novel about a man who finds a cancer cure – and then throws it away.
In 1971, President Nixon introduced the National Cancer Act of 1971, the aim of which was to eradicate cancer as a major cause of death. Nearly fifty years later, despite significant advances in the understanding of cancer biology, risk factors, treatments and prognosis of cancer types, progress in reducing the overall cancer mortality rates has been disappointing. According to published statistics, the overall death rate for cancer in the U.S., adjusted for population size and age, has dropped only 5 percent since 1950. It is this failure that Roger Gerald Scott addresses in this book.
“It’s a story that has to be told and in such a way that it reaches the widest audience and not just get hidden in some medical professional’s drawer." Roger says, "It remains a fact that the United States alone spend over 2 billion dollars annually on researching cancer so why are there so few answers? Currently 14 million people are diagnosed every year and this is expected to increase to 24 million by 2035.”
The book shines a light into true facts about cancer, research, the medical profession and the pharmaceutical industry, which is funding research for its cure – but also profiting from its existence.
Is the world really ready for a cancer cure?
