Cancer: The Fear Business
Dangerous consequences of alternative therapies
In months of undercover research, the filmmakers have been able to reveal just how abstruse the therapies of non-medical practitioners and doctors treating cancer patients can be.
Are there miracle cures for cancer? Why are so many patients turning away from conventional medicine? And why is the law often powerless against money-savvy charlatans? The film delivers scientifically based answers and provides shocking insights into the business of so-called “gentle medicine”.
