Cancer Questions and Controversies

A lecture by Dr Robert Buist.

We look at the current debate and some alternative thinking about approaches to diagnosing and treating cancer. How effective is mammography and who should be screened?

How effective is chemotherapy, radiation and surgery? Are needle biopsies causing needle track seeding to occur and possibly spreading metastasis? Is chemotherapy carcinogenic? Is early screening really reducing overall mortality?

Why are certain foods, phytonutrients and micronutrients beneficial for prevention or treatment of cancer?  Which dietary oils play a role?

We examine the role of psychological factors including social isolation and stress and which nutritional factors might effect regression and remission. The anti-cancer effect of vitamin D is also examined.
