Why We Are Losing the War on Cancer: New Approach Needed

From the January 2005 edition of Dr. Fuhrman's Healthy Times:

Clearly, the time is ripe to direct our attention to the causes of disease. Both cancer and heart disease can be effectively prevented. If we take a careful look at the scientific evidence, there is no doubt that the most powerful weapon we have to defeat the current epidemic of deaths in the modern world is nutritional excellence. We must redirect our efforts away from detection and treatment (which most often is futile) and toward prevention.

If the billions of dollars spent on cancer drug research were redirected into campaigns of public awareness and education about the nutritional and environmental causes of cancer, we could have a nation with a bright new health future. I look forward to the day when scientists, physicians, governments, businesses, and educators work together to educate the public that they do not have to die needlessly.
