A provocative and surprising investigation into the ways that profit, personalities, and politics obstruct real progress in the war on canceraand one doctor's passionate call to action for change This year, nearly 1.6 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed and more than 1, 500 people will die per day. We've been asked to accept the disappointing strategy to qmanage cancer as a chronic disease.q We've allowed pharmaceutical companies to position cancer drugs that extend life by just weeks and may cost $100, 000 for a single course of treatment as breakthroughs. Why have we been able to cure and prevent other killer diseases but not most cancers? Where is the bold government leadership that will transform our system from treatment to prevention? Have we forgotten the mission of the National Cancer Act of 1971, to qconquer cancerq?
