Web Page Potpourri: the Cancer Prevention Coalition

A column devoted to informative alternative health resources on the internet

Please don't confuse preventcancer.com (Cancer Prevention Coalition) with preventcancer.org (Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation). The latter focuses on early detection and the "war on cancer" which the Cancer Prevention Coalition, by contrast, exposes as deeply flawed.

The Cancer Prevention Coalition's website is a good information source on avoidable exposures (including food irradiation, pesticides, cosmetics, medicines, hormones) and avoidable cancers (including colon, breast, prostate, thyroid, and childhood cancers). The site also tackles the deeply political territory of how the "war on cancer" is funded and manifested.

Be sure to check out this recent downloadable report on the site: The Stop Cancer Before it Starts Campaign: How to Win the Losing War Against Cancer. (I am one of the endorsers, and looking at the list of the others, I feel in good company.) The formatting doesn't win any awards, but the content is essentially an expos6 of the cancer establishment.

The Coalition's Director, Dr. Samuel Epstein, MD, wrote and later updated the book, The Politics of Cancer, Revisited, a rich 770-page sourcebook. The website and the book have much overlapping content, but the book does have content not on the web, and vice-versa. For instance, the report mentioned above (only on the web) has information on recent election contributions by the chemical industry, and details on flaws in Dianne Feinstein's proposed National Cancer Act. "Regrettably," it notes, "this well-intentioned Bill unwittingly surrenders the National Cancer Program to special interests." Both book and website include specific guidelines for reform in national cancer policy.
