Overview

What if the ultimate treatment for cancer was closer than most of us realize? A silent revolution has been unfolding recently in the science of natural medicine, bringing us so close to the answer-far too close, for some. Chromogen employee Annika Guthrie understands this more than most. She's watched her terminally ill father add years to his life with natural supplements, and makes it her mission to turn this alternative medicine into what the medical community calls "real" science. It's why she joins forces with the maverick but genius cancer researcher Dr. Elliott Lindell, even though he works with Mitogenica-Chromogen's fiercest competitor. Together, they formulate a cocktail of natural supplements which Annika secretly gives to patients in Chromogen's latest drug trial. The cocktail works so well, it threatens to undermine Chromogen's next billion dollar chemo drug, and Annika's world quickly falls apart. Her wards start curiously dying from everything but their cancer, and Dr. Lindell disappears on the eve of his most critical experiment. Annika soon finds she is the only one left who can recover what remains of Dr. Lindell's work-and that she is racing against someone far larger and more deadly than her worst fears.

ForeWord
What if there was a sophisticated cocktail of nutritional supplements and Chinese herbs, that could cure most, if not all cancers? A cocktail that had no significant side effects, was inexpensive, and dramatically outperformed every pharmaceutical drug on the market? Would the pharmaceutical industry applaud this cure, stop selling cancer drugs, and move on to other things? Or would they use their billions, their lobbyists, their profit-above-all-else mentality to discredit the cure, destroy the recipe, and otherwise lie, cheat, steal, and murder their way back to the front and center of the war on cancer? This not-so-impossible scenario is the core premise of The Eden Prescription, a whirling dervish of a novel that keeps the reader turning the pages with impeccable dialogue, relentless action, believable characters, up-to-date science, great conspiracy theories, and lots of really old money and priceless antiques. Dr. Elliot Lindell, the novel's protagonist, is a brilliant, ultra-wealthy, renegade scientist on the edge of inventing a world-changing cancer cure and computer model. The three-dimensional model simulates cancer cells dying under the influence of his quintessential mixture of Israeli pomegranate extract, rare Thai ginger, vitamin D, Chinese herbs, and several other supplements. Annika Guthrie, his trusted protegee, is an attractive young graduate student who, as a teenage science prodigy, helped her cancer stricken father extend his life by several years using natural modalities. Though both abhor the industry, they ironically work for competing pharmaceutical companies that have no genuine interest in natural cures. There are several craven antagonists who belong to an exceedingly rich and powerful top secret organization with a dystopian plan to take over the world. They will stop at nothing to get Lindell's recipe and computer model before they get into the hands of suffering cancer patients, and destroy one of the most profitable rackets in history. The good guys are only slightly less unconscionable, but want to keep Lindell and Annika alive for their own exploitative purposes. Both sides have an endless supply of ex special-forces mercenaries with a stellar collection of high-tech guns, bulletproof Range Rovers, speedboats, helicopters, and an aerosol can that sprays an undetectable heart-stopping mist. This is an exceptional piece of fiction. Anyone who knows someone with cancer, or has an interest in natural cures is going to thoroughly enjoy this book, as are fans of conspiracies, mysteries, thrillers, science, computers, and even lovers of romance. Patty Sutherland -- ForeWord Clarion Review, November 3, 2010. Five Stars (out of five)

Meet the Author

Ethan Evers has a PhD in Applied Science and received his MBA from the Kellogg School of Management. Working for over ten years in Product Development in a Fortune Global 500 company, he is the inventor of technologies covered by over thirty patents granted internationally. Ethan became intrigued by natural medicine when a family member used it to hold her cancer at bay for years before finally succumbing to the terrible disease. After years of researching the subject, he became appalled at how the cancer industry and a very complicit mass media appear to be underreporting-if not ignoring-an ever increasing mass of bona-fide science which supports alternative and natural medicine, even when that science is published in peer-reviewed medical journals. Ethan has worked and lived in the United States, Japan, and Canada, and currently lives in Europe with his family. The Eden Prescription is his first book.
