One of the first books I read during my holistic nutrition training and a real eye opener.  This book tells the story of the Hoxsey Cancer Clinics and how many people were cured from cancer through alternative therapies.  What becomes equally intriguing to the cancer cure is the surrounding politics and the detailed story of the rise of the American Medical Association and the subsequent politics of that.  There is also a DVD that tells the story as well.  If you are interested in cures for cancer and medical politics this is the book for you!
