The Alternative Cancer Therapy Book
by Richard Walters
A comprehensive survey of alternative cancer treatments, Options
is especially useful for including not only information about
herbal, nutritional and other holistic approaches, but also about
maverick doctors and scientists, and experimental drug therapies.
This is information that is hard to find in any form, and almost
impossible to find in language that is accessible to the non-scientist.
Although translated from medicalese, the book retains a slightly
sterile tone, emphasizing the scientific validity of the various
therapies. But if you've been diagnosed with cancer and want facts
on alternative therapies, Options offers synopses of research,
anecdotal accounts of treatment and analysis of how some medical
treatments become standard, while others become quackery.
