Devra Davis: The Secret History Of The War On Cancer

Friday, Nov 16, 2007

Hear Professor Devra Davis speak about her new book The Secret History of the War on Cancer. She will show how we began fighting the wrong war, with the wrong weapons against the wrong enemy. The War on Cancer set out to find, treat, and cure a disease. Left untouched were many of the things known to cause cancer, including tobacco, the workplace, radiation, or the global environment. Proof of how the world in which we live and work affects whether we get cancer was either overlooked or suppressed.
