Davis devra why we have not yet won the war on cancer
Climbing the time machine and be accompanied by devra Davis: you in Brussels, the year 1936. It was summer and 200 oncologists gathered for a congress that was not any one event. Indeed. “He had the characteristics of a real Manhattan Project on cancer: the best brains available together to create something amazing and innovative.” But the meeting remained secret for nearly 70 years. “Many of your and my relatives are still alive today, what if those men and women of science knew in 1936 was put at the service of medicine.”
Many would be alive if the time machine will bring in Years 40 and 50 and you do know Kehoe and Robert Wilhelm Hueper. The first was the captain of the U.S. in 1945 that gathered the documents of Nazi scientists on the links between chemicals and cancer and the second is the German doctor, naturalized American, who studied cancers caused by workplace. Unfortunately, their studies had the same fate as those who noticed in Belgium. Forgotten, as the Ark of the first Indiana Jones: hidden in a secret warehouse. The archaeologist Spielberg has been rebuilt, but no humanity has been the victim of mistakes and conspiracies that devra Davis took years to rebuild. Now the truth is in a book – “The Secret History of the War on Cancer ‘- and that in conferences keeps the world (yesterday in Cinemambiente in Turin, and 27 at the Science Festival of Genoa).
Professor, she is director of the Center for Environmental Oncology ‘at the University of Pittsburgh professor of epidemiology and why the data disappeared’36?
“It says a Chinese proverb:” If you do not ask, do not you know. ” The authorities were ignorant and chose to be. It was an era without the Internet and it is plausible that the “report” remains unknown. ”
You say we pay a terrible price. It took half a century to put the pieces together and meanwhile, only in the U.S., 10 million people died.
‘Then, and for years it was thought that if progress had changed the world, then you could tolerate the price. Although back in’36, scientists have understood that tobacco kills in the 40s and the Nazis had shown the damage to the lungs, governments have not spoken with the anti-smoking campaigns up to 90 years.
And today you are: we are making the same mistakes. Why?
“There are many other potential causes such as tobacco, we can not yet definitively prove that cause cancer, but we have many reasons for concern. And yet are systematically ignored. ”
An example for all?
“The phones. Visit our website www.preventingcancernow.org: include new study that explains how the WHO to be associated with an increased risk of brain cancer, if you use them for 10 years or more. There are many studies that deny the dangers, but merely reduced periods and no one examines the dangers to children, but it is impossible to separate them from mobile phones: one of my videos on Youtube reveals how the signals go deep in the brain. ”
What solutions proposed?
“Very simple: headphones and speakers and to always keep a few centimeters from the body. I hope that producers are willing to work with us. It would be tragic to wait and see how definitive proof the deaths of many individuals. ”
Even the story of two minds as Kehoe and Hueper is full of lights and shadows: that they blame?
“They were talented, but naive. They thought that big business would act in any better: just provide the right information. Already in 20 Years Kehoe invented a technique for inserting the lead in gasoline without killing the workers, but refused to acknowledge that you have created a technology that spread into the atmosphere. ”
Hueper, however, is a better symbol?
‘Yes. Very rare. It ‘been one of the founders of environmental and occupational carcinogenesis. But it was isolated, just as happened in Italy in Years 70 to Cesare Maltoni, a pioneer of studies on vinyl chloride. Yet the cancer research addressed the public continues to Ramazzini Foundation in Bologna and it is this that we, in Pittsburgh, inspires us: people have a fundamental right to know. ”
And the scientists of the twenty-first century? How are behaving?
“Some good, some not. But the system does not work. And ‘why I propose a “committee for reconciliation” on the lines of that of South Africa. E ‘notice that industries have the best lawyers and tends to win those who have more money, then, the idea is a compromise: the obligation to pay the medical care of employees who are sick and to provide epidemiological information at their disposal without serious damages record. We must establish a partnership. ” SEE LINK
