In my 40 years of activism, I have rarely seen a book filled with so much valuable information that focuses on solutions and not just the difficult problems that confront us. Bravo for Cancer: 101 Solutions to a Preventable Epidemic. With it, there are no more excuses for not taking action.

Despite a large scientific literature documenting possible links between chemicals and cancer, there has been insufficient effort made to put chemicals on the cancer agenda. This important and comprehensive book with its focus on practical solutions will help put environmental causes and solutions centre stage.
- Jamie D. Page, Cancer Prevention and Education Society, UK
The authors of Cancer have taken up where most doctors, public health officials, scientists, businesspeople and regulators have left off. They have assembled and digested a vast array of information from a wide variety of sources, and turned it into a “handbook” for arresting the tide of unnecessary, premature death from exposure to the carcinogens we still produce in untold quantities. This book is wonderful tool for enhancing your own health, and the health of our planetary home.
– Dr Warren Bell, MD
This is one of the few books that fully grasps the links between workplace hazards and cancer, and suggests many useful solutions to this sadly neglected problem.

Cancer: 101 Solutions to a Preventable Epidemic puts key elements of environmental risks and protective opportunities into a meaningful systems perspective. To learn about what science has to say about how to strongly reduce the risk of getting cancer, and improve on the quality of life from doing so, it should appeal to most readers who want to learn from facts that are put in purposeful, tangible, and hopeful contexts.
– Karl-Henrik Robèrt, MD, Founder of The Natural Step International
Cancer: 101 Solutions to a Preventable Epidemic does what any 101 course should do: it lays the ground for further study, research and most importantly to change the future of our population and planet for efficient action…. It is the step we need to go from scientific results to population based prevention. As a woman, a mother, a citizen of the world and also a doctor and a scientist, I support such an initiative. As I see my research and my personal life as intertwined, I consider the authors of this book and myself as partners for health, not 100% of the time in agreement but looking and going in the same direction.
