Death of Cancer – Vincent C deVita – Review

Did not finish ‘Death of Cancer’ ┬áthinking we have arrived – if the death of cancer is arrival. But a fascinating insight for the layman into the work and times of a leading oncologist over the last 40 years.

Would not be qualified to comment on his explanation of cancer and the various patterns of development – but all seemed logical, if somewhat frightening.

Great feel for the journey of a somewhat frustrated cancer killer – one who feels that FDA regulation has unnecessarily delayed treatment of many patients.

Story is personal – in dealing with a number of family and close personal friends and their cancer battles. Indeed his own story features in the end of the book.

I think the overall message is very positive – with the reservation that cancers continue to mutate and that many times patients may struggle to get the best treatment: because doctors may be over conservative, may not have the skills/ resources available to them or the latest potential solutions may be tied up in FDA type regulation.

But a good read and reasonably informative.
