The scourge of cancer has ripped through bodies, families, and generations for so long and with such power that it feels almost invincible. Biologist Paul Ewald�widely regarded as the leading expert in the emerging field of evolutionary medicine�and co-author Holly Swain Ewald may have found a way of attacking the intractable killer. The Ewalds believe that viruses may be at the heart of the onset of cancer and we can counter the disease through an early attack on the virus.� In this important study, they� form a powerful plan for re-examining, attacking, and eradicating one of the world's deadliest diseases.
