Dr. Samuel Epstein and the Politics of Cancer

The Politics of Cancer, Revisited

We are not winning the war against cancer. We are losing the war. The number of Americans getting cancer each year has escalated over recent decades, while our ability to treat and cure most common cancers has remained virtually unchanged.

Dr. Epstein states: “The National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society have misled and confused the public and Congress by repeated false claims that we are winning the war against cancer claims made to create public and Congressional support for massive increases in budgetary appropriations.”
