Cancer has plagued people, animals, and even plant life forever. How we have learned to deal with the human aspect is disheartening. At last, someone’s come along quite unafraid of looking at cancer in the eye and asking, “How do I get you?”

With a wealth of powerful background and experience as an MD, James S. Welsh attacks cancer head-on in his new book, Sharks Get Cancer, Mole Rats Don’t, he raises an important question of where we should look for hope for a cure.

The author appears to put a lot of emphasis on immuno-therapy. I personally have doubts since one of the main side effects is how this approach is too damaging to healthy cells. Yet, Welsh sees hope.

Why some creatures get cancer while others don’t has been a mystery throughout the ages. Welsh has touched on a significant aspect of biological development that may change the way we think of this disease.
