Overview

The Nazi War on Cancer by Robert N. Proctor

Robert Proctor recently made the explosive discovery that Nazi Germany was decades ahead of other countries in promoting health reforms that we today regard as progressive and socially responsible, including anti-smoking campaigns, restrictions on asbestos, pesticides, and food dyes, and the promotion of vegetarianism. Proctor explores these findings and concludes that the Nazi's forward-looking health activism stemmed from the ideal of a racial utopia reserved exclusively for pure and healthy Germans.
