Canine Cancer, Why It Is Rampant, How to Prevent It, and an Exciting New Strategy for Treating Dogs With Cancer
Cancer is wildly out of control in our dogs. The author, a veteran cancer research scientist with more than 40 years of experience, and whose research has been funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has discovered the cause of the extreme rates of cancer in the canine population. In this remarkable book, he shows how dogs developed a species-specific “kill switch” tumor suppression mechanism that closely parallels the human-specific “kill switch” tumor suppression mechanism, and how this parallel evolution enabled the bond and collaboration between humans and dogs to develop. He also shows how this tumor suppression mechanism in modern dogs has become inoperable, and how it can be regenerated to both prevent canine cancer, and to treat cancer in dogs by re-activation of the kill switch. A must read for anyone who loves a dog.
