The Prevention of Cancer – Strength Magazine – March, 1925

Probably no message which could be delivered to the world at the present time would be received with greater welcome than the announcement that a method of curing cancer had been found. Just what such a method would mean, were it really true, may be imagined when the staggering reality of the extent to which this scourge has spread, is considered. During the past generation the percentage of those who die from cancer in the “United States has increased 32 per cent, bringing the total yearly deaths to 90,000. The world has turned to science, as it almost invariably does when beset by some great evil, for aid, and the world very little appreciates the heroic efforts that science is making at the present time to find some method of stopping this insidious thing.
