Why the “Slash-Poison-Burn Approach” to Cancer Has Failed

Slash, poison, burn. That’s what a leading cancer doctor calls the protocol of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.

We spend $150 billion each year treating cancer, yet a patient with cancer is as likely to die of it today — with a few exceptions — as one was 50 years ago.

Today, Democracy Now! spends the hour with renowned cancer doctor, Dr. Azra Raza, author of the new book, The First Cell: And the Human Costs of Pursuing Cancer to the Last.

She argues that experiments and the funding for eradicating cancer look at the disease when it is in its later stages, when the cancer has grown and spread.

Instead, she says, the focus should be on the very first stages — the first cell, as her book is titled. She says this type of treatment would be more effective, cheaper and less toxic.
