A few years ago I read The Emperor of Maladies, the book about cancer cited in the article (GREAT article, BTW, bookmarked forever). It pointed out early on, perhaps in the introduction, that Nixon had waged WAR on cancer. It was never about prevention, more about aggressive treatment. Unfortunately that seems to be the American way. Time to change the paradigm? That's never easy.
