In this lecture she mentioned some of the improper activities of the American Cancer Society. Here is the reference for them:
"American Cancer Society America's Wealthiest 'Non-Profit' Institution" by Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., International Journal of Health Services, 1999 also available at www.preventcancer.com.
I once asked the CEO of the ACS about these; he refused to provide a proper reply. I also asked the former provost of UGA to invite professor Epstein to campus to set the record straight. She refused.
I documented all this in "University Fails to Offer Another Viewpoint" by Winfield J. Abbe, Ph.D. published at www.annieappleseedproject.org. The operator of this website, Ann Fonfa, is a breast cancer survivor from New York. She lives in Florida today. It is a most enlightening website on cancer and alternatives to the many toxic treatments of the medical orthodoxy.
