Demystifying Cancer

The biochemist explains how the behaviour of cells is controlled and what goes wrong when they begin to proliferate in an abnormal manner – the basic cause of cancers. He then enters an amazing new world, revealed by astonishing technical advances that are revolutionising how we think about and treat cancers. Advances and alternatives that suggest a cautious optimism for the future of mankind’s battle against these fascinating diseases. His Betrayed by Nature and The Secret of Life are published this year.
