The Secret History of the War on Cancer

By Devra Davis, PhD, MPH
Narrated by Pam Ward / 19 hours 11 minutes

The war on cancer set out to find, treat, and cure a disease. But it has left untouched many of the things known to cause cancer, including tobacco, the workplace, radiation, and the global environment. Proof of how the world in which we live affects whether we get cancer has been either overlooked or suppressed. This has been no accident. The war on cancer is run by the leaders of industries that make cancer-causing products and that also sometimes profit from treating the disease. This is the gripping story of a major public health effort diverted and distorted for private gain. Filled with compelling personalities and never-before-revealed information, this book by Dr. Davis, acclaimed author and scientist, shows how we began fighting the wrong war, with the wrong weapons, against the wrong enemies, a legacy that persists today.
