Natenberg, Maurice  
The Cancer Blackout: A History of Denied and Suppressed Remedies
 Picture
Publisher: Regent House, 1959 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Introduction by Robert Barnard, M.D. "Cancer is enshrouded in many mysteries. There are not only the enigmas of pathological processes which make the problem of cure so baffling but also the mysteries of human motivations in cancer controversies. The hidden purposes and machinations which have e3upted so often into bitter disputes, investigations, violent conflicts, accusations of fraud, quackery and deliberate falsification of records, have never been adequately studied. That too is an integral component of the cancer problem. This work is devoted chiefly to the history of the disputes in cancer which have led to the suppression of important facts and the dissemination of distorted information to the public. Because of the powerful undercurrent of emotions, cancerology is probably the most controversial field in medicine and surgery. Facts which conflicted with the interests and opinions of the dictators of the trend, have been continuously subjected to a blackout. The work of many sincere and capable men has been unfairly discredited and ridiculed.." xxiii + 206 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition; expected wear for a book of this age and genre. Paper wrappers.
