Rethinking Cancer Newsletter #7
| Dear Friends,
While spring rambles in (at last!), the press file for our film, Rethinking Cancer, has been growing at a rapid pace. Here are just 2 recent entries:
Doris Sokosh, 37-year recovered cancer patient featured in the film, is interviewed on Connecticut’s News 12 TV as she cooks up a few dishes from her soon-to-be-published book, Triumph Over Cancer — My Recipes for Recovery. And Sheryl Leventhal, M.D., also featured in the film, a former oncologist now practicing the more nutrition-based Functional Medicine, is guest for the hour on the weekly Wide World of Health radio show.
Rethinking Cancer is headed for Asia! Our Chinese-subtitled DVD’s have been completed and a large order is en route to the East. In conjunction with this release, we have added two new books to our Recommended Reading: Dr. Lai’s Health Tips and The Pursuit of Life, both by Chiu-Nan Lai, Ph.D, a former cancer researcher who now lectures around the world on cancer prevention and treatment. She’s also head of Lapis Lazuli Light, an international health information service, which includes centers in Asia. Dr. Chiu-Nan Lai was the first to contact us about potential Chinese interest in the film, and her books are highly compatible with F.A.C.T.’s Biorepair concept.
As always, we are constantly adding more news, press and resources, so check back often! And please send your comments, and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To Your Health!

The Great Prostate Mistake
“EACH year some 30 million American men undergo testing for prostate-specific antigen, an enzyme made by the prostate. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1994, the P.S.A. test is the most commonly used tool for detecting prostate cancer.” READ MORE
Book Review: Should I Be Tested for Cancer?
Maybe Not and Here’s Why
“Early detection saves lives!”
This is perhaps one of today’s most oft chanted medical maxims, but is it true? According to H. Gilbert Welch, M.D., M.P.H., medical professor at Dartmouth Medical School and co-director of the VA Outcomes Group in the Department of Veterans Affairs, the issue is far more nuanced than the hype would suggest. His book, Should I Be Tested for Cancer?, is unique and important because it gives readers what they usually don’t want: no easy answers. What he does provide is valuable, rarely heard information, much of which would indicate that testing can bring serious problems and may not produce intended benefits. READ MORE
