When Healing Becomes a Crime
The Amazing Story of the Suppression of the Hoxsey Treatment and the Rise of Alternative Cancer Therapies
By (author) Kenny Ausubel
When Healing Becomes a Crime by Kenny Ausubel
Book DescriptionHarry Hoxsey claimed to cure cancer using herbal remedies, and thousands of patients swore that he healed them. His Texas clinic became the world's largest privately owned cancer center with branches in seventeen states, and the value of its therapeutic treatments was upheld by two federal courts." Even his arch-nemesis, the AMA, admitted his treatment was effective against some forms of cancer." But the medical establishment refused an investigation, branding Hoxsey the worst cancer quack of the century and forcing his clinic to Tijuana, Mexico, where it continues to claim very high success rates." Modern laboratory tests have confirmed the anticancer properties of Hoxsey's herbs, and a federal govenment-sponsored report is now calling for a major reconsideration of the Hoxsey therapy. When Healing Becomes a Crimeexposes the overall failure of the War on Cancer, while revealing how yesterday's andquot;unorthodoxandquot; treatments are emerging as tomorrow's medicine. It probes other promising unconventional cancer treatments that have also been condemned without investigation, delving deeply into the corrosive medical politics and powerful economic forces behind this suppression. As alternative medicine finally regains its rightful place in mainstream practice, this compelling book will not only forever change the way you see medicine, but could also save your life.
