Argues that while the medical profession and cancer research institutions attribute most of the cancer increase to genetic and lifestyle factors, carcinogens in our air, water, food, and workplaces are significant causes of cancer. Criticizes the main objective of the fight against cancer, which is to find treatments or cures rather than promoting preventive measures. Concludes that many cancers could be prevented if the cancer-causing chemicals were removed from our environment.
