THE TRUTH ABOUT CANCER

THE TRUTH ABOUT CANCER

This interview was done in 1996. UNFORTUNATELY, THE INFORMATION IS TIMELESS – BOTH THE TRUTH ABOUT CANCER and THE CONFLICT OF INTEREST BETWEEN BIG PHARMA AND SOME CANCER CENTERS AND SOME PHYSICIANS.

On September 8, 2018 the New York Times and ProPublica reported that Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s chief medical officer, Dr. José Baselga, also on the Board of Memorial Sloan-Kettering, failed to disclose millions of dollars’ worth of payments and did not disclose his financial ties from dozens of research articles in prestigious publications like The New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet.
