The First Cell: And the Human Costs of Pursuing Cancer to the Last
The First Cell: And the Human Costs of Pursuing Cancer to the Last, an informed and personal assessment of the state of cancer treatment. Her blunt conclusion is that we need to do a reset. We are wasting resources. Our cancer treatments come too late and do a lot of harm to healthy cells. We should refocus on early detection and prevention. Widespread and targeted late stage treatment has costs that she describes through cases presented in this book, including her husband’s leukemia. When I finished this book, I had the sense that this doctor knows her stuff, and that the President of the United States should appoint Raza to direct the allocation of cancer research funds from the government.
