Summary
Cancer touches more lives than you may think. According to the World Health Organization, one out of three women alive today, and one out of two men, will face a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. To Ty Bollinger, this isn't just a statistic. It's personal. After losing seven members of his family to cancer over the course of a decade, Ty set out on a global quest to learn as much as he possibly could about cancer treatments and the medical industry that surrounds the disease. He has written this book to share what he's uncovered-some of which may shock you-and to give you new resources for coping with cancer in your life or the life of someone you love. As Ty explains, there are many methods we can access to treat and prevent cancer that go well beyond chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery; we just don't know about them. The Truth about Cancer delves into the history of medicine-all the way back to Hippocrates's credo of do no harm -as well as cutting-edge research showing the efficacy of dozens of unconventional cancer treatments that are helping patients around the globe. You'll read about the politics of cancer; facts and myths about its causes (a family history is only part of the picture); and the range of tools available to diagnose and treat it. If you're facing a cancer diagnosis right now, this book may help you and your health-care provider make choices about your next steps. If you're already undergoing conventional treatment, it may help you support your health during the course of chemo or radiation. If you're a health-care provider and want to learn all you can to help your patients, it will expand your horizons and inspire you with true stories of successful healing. And if you just want to see cancer in a new light, it will open your eyes
