"One out of three women alive today, and one out of two men, will face a cancer diagnosis, according to the World Health Organization. Ty Bollinger takes this personally: in the course of a decade, he says, "I lost my entire family to cancer. I don't believe I had to lose them." The Truth about Cancer has been written for one simple reason: to share the knowledge we need to protect ourselves, treat ourselves, and in some cases save our lives or the lives of those we love. Bollinger, whose October 2015 documentary miniseries The Truth about Cancer: A Global Quest has received over 5 million views to date, explains that there are many methods we can access to treat and prevent cancer--we just don't know about them. The book delves into the history of medicine--all the way back to Hippocrates's credo of "do no harm"--as well as up-to-the-minute research that proves the efficacy of dozens of advanced cancer treatments being used around the globe. Bollinger arms readers with essential, sometimes startling information about: The history and politics of cancer The takeover of medical education by special interests and for-profit agendas How some life-saving treatments have been kept from the public--and why Treatment options that go well beyond chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery"To us this is not a business, it's a mission," he explains. "We're on a mission to save the world.""-- Provided by publisher.

The author writes that only just over 2% of people who receive conventional treatments are alive 5+ years later but offers no such percentages (with one small exception) for people who were successfully treated with each supposed alternative "cure". Testimonials are presented but no results of double-blind clinical trials (apparently they don't have the "trillions" of dollars "Big Pharma" has to do them and so never attempt anything of the sort). It would lend considerable credibility to his claims if he were to include such information. The fact that he does not is suspicious, at best, and damning, at worst.
He criticizes "Big Pharma" for being greedy and neglects to mention that the people who offer the alternative treatments are also charging (and I suspect charging a lot) for said treatment.
I only have a 2 year pre-med background, so while most of the presented alternative treatments sound reasonable, some read as sheer utter nonsense. I hope anyone who reads this book does their own research before foregoing conventional treatments.
