How Politics Shapes What We Know and Don't Know About CancerBook - 1995
A scholarly history of the social biases, economic interests, and political stakes that have long influenced debates over the causes, prevention, and treatment of cancer. Proctor asserts that the causes of cancer are largely known and exposes some startling statistics and disturbing conspiracies concerning its ever-rising rate, observing that the curing of cancer is a political problem as much as it is a scientific one.
