Abstract:

The most common diseases in our society today, cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease and diabetes, are a concern for everyone. And yet, those who are diagnosed with them often feel helpless as they search for answers in a muddle of conflicting information.

But what successes have been achieved in the battle against cancer? What can high-tech medicine do and not do? Are the latest therapies always the best ones? Where have the real successes been achieved in the battle against illness?
