The C Word

Some people freeze up at the word “cancer”. Some won’t read any further, they’re so scared of it. The fact is, cancer is a condition that many people live with. It’s scary, yes, but it’s also a blanket term whose pathology can vary widely, with equally disparate outcomes.

The Price of Life

I’m not a conspiracy theorist about a cure for cancer. I don’t believe the government or big pharma are keeping it from us to force us to feed the beast by buying expensive drugs. But I do believe that big pharma is mostly a disgusting greed machine that pumps out important innovations and then holds us hostage to the cost. I’ll give you an example.
