    When science-writer George Johnson's wife was diagnosed with a metastatic cancer, he plunged himself into a study of the disease and of the people who dedicate their lives to understanding and combating it. What he discovered is that a revolution is now underway u a thrilling explosion of theories about what cancer really is and where it comes from. Here we have his luminous accounts of, among other revelations: tumours that evolve like alien creatures inside the body...palaeontologists who have found petrified tumours clinging to the skeletons of dinosaurs and human ancestors...the surprising changes in science's understanding of the causes of cancer, with dietary specifics and environmental toxins taking a lesser role. The Cancer Chronicles will challenge everything you thought you knew about the disease u and provide hope for tomorrow and into the future.
