Catching Cancer introduces readers to the investigators who created a medical revolution—a new way of looking at cancer and its causes. Featuring interviews with notable scientists such as Harald zur Hausen, Barry Marshall, Robin Warren, and others, the book tells the story of their struggles, their frustrations, and finally the breakthroughs that helped form some of the most profound changes in the way we view cancer. Claudia Cornwall takes readers inside the lab to reveal the long and winding path to discoveries that have changed and continue to alter the course of medical approaches to one of the most confounding diseases mankind has known. She tells the stories of families who have benefited from this new knowledge, of the researchers who made the revolution happen, and the breakthroughs that continue to change our lives.For years, we’ve thought cancer was the result of lifestyle choices, environmental factors, or genetic mutations. But pioneering scientists have begun to change that picture. We now know that infections cause 20 percent of cancers, including liver, stomach, and cervical cancer, which together kill almost 1.8 million people every year. While the idea that you can catch cancer may sound unsettling, it is actually good news. It means antibiotics and vaccines can be used to combat this most dreaded disease. With this understanding, we have new methods of preventing cancer, and perhaps we may be able to look forward to a day when we will no more fear cancer than we do polio or rubella.
Acerca de Claudia Cornwall
Claudia Cornwall was born in Shanghai, but has lived in Canada ever since she was nine months old. She studied philosophy at university; her PhD thesis looked at the question of whether language-using gorillas were persons. She married in 1971, and together with her husband settled in Vancouver. Though she liked ideas, she found that she couldn’t make a living as a philosopher! So, she turned to freelance writing. She has written many articles about science and medicine for Reader’s Digest, for both the Canadian and international editions, for the Globe and Mail, BC Business, and other magazines. She wrote a book for children called Print-Outs, the adventures of a rebel computer. It sold 4000 copies in Canada and was turned into a radio play in Norway.
