A good review and interview with Devra Davis, author of The Secret History of the War on Cancer, is on the alternet pages.  At last there is a book, written by an epidemiologist, about how industry (and government) over the years has pushed the emphasis on cancer to the "cure" side and essentially ignored the "prevention" side. Davis writes that it is very difficult to conduct a controlled study because all of us are exposed to the chemical cocktail now, but we know enough. We don't need to have absolute proof to take action.

I have for years been pointing out that the increases in cancer cannot be attributed simply to better accounting, that we are all faced with pollution of the skies, of our water, of our land, of our bodies, and that this pollution undoubtedly has had an effect on the cancer rates. Finally this book tells us I AM RIGHT. Further, I am right to withhold my charitable contributions to organizations that focus on cure rather than prevention.
