Cancer Therapy: The Independent Consumer's Guide to Non-Toxic Treatment & Prevention

by Ralph W. Moss (Author)



Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal
In this consumer's guide, the author of The Cancer Industry ( LJ 2/15/80; LJ
10/15/89, rev. ed.) discusses alternative cancer therapies that include
vitamins, minerals, herbs, diets, immune boosters, and other substances. He also
covers conventional chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation but emphasizes
their adverse effects. Though he provides references to scientific articles,
most of them are animal or tissue culture studies; there is no information about
the effectiveness of these treatments for humans. A strongly worded disclaimer
encourages readers to seek medical advice before using these treatments, and a
handshake symbol in the text indicates a substance that is compatible with
conventional therapies. Moss also includes a resource list of organizations
concerned with cancer treatment. Malin Dollinger, M.D. & others' Everyone's
Guide to Cancer Therapy ( LJ 5/15/91) offers a detailed, objective overview of
current cancer care that is a more appropriate choice for most collections, but
Cancer Therapy is a useful addition to collections where there is interest in
alternative health treatments.

Book Description
This thorough guide is a must-read for cancer patients and their families
seeking treatment options.
