9781623361594: A World without Cancer: The Making of a New Cure and the Real Promise of Prevention

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 "manage cancer as a chronic disease." 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 "conquer cancer"?

Through an analysis of over 40 years of medical evidence and interviews with cancer doctors, researchers, drug company executives, and health policy advisors, Dr. Cuomo reveals frank and intriguing answers to these questions. In A World without Cancer: The Making of a New Cure and the Real Promise of Prevention, she shows us how all cancer stakeholders―the pharmaceutical industry, government, physicians, and concerned Americans―can change the way we view and fight cancer in this country.

About the Author :

MARGARET I. CUOMO, MD, is a board-certified radiologist. She is the daughter of former New York governor Mario Cuomo and Mrs. Matilda Cuomo, and sister to Governor Andrew Cuomo and ABC's Chris Cuomo. She resides in New York.

From Booklist :

Radiologist Cuomo deems the war on cancer a stalemate at best. Her opening sentence is a salvo: “The system designed to study, diagnose, and treat cancer in the United States is fatally flawed.” She believes the expectations of actually curing the disease have been replaced by a clinical resignation to living with it as a chronic illness along the lines of diabetes or hypertension. She’s not happy with the triad of treatment options for cancer—surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, satirized as “cut, poison, and burn.” Cuomo finds fault with their toxicity, expense, and often minimally beneficial long-term results for individuals with advanced malignancies. She cites one study showing that cancer patients who received palliative care survived about three months longer, with less depression, than those who obtained standard therapies. She offers recommendations emphasizing prevention. Change behaviors linked to a raised risk of cancer. Lower exposure to medical radiation and environmental contaminants. Get cancer-preventing vaccines. Consider screening for selected types of the disease. In sum, Cuomo makes a convincing case for changing the culture of cancer. --Tony Miksanek
