Comprehensive look at the history of cancer research. Informative viewing. Not much on prevention though. Was prevention covered more in the book?

This program was brought to viewers like us by Bristol-Meyer Squibb, Genentech, Siemens and David H. Koch. While I do recommend this program, I find it interesting that there was only a mere 15-second section on _prevention_ of cancer. Perhaps more than a cursory approach would offended/challenged the sponsors?

This is the best documentary I have ever seen on the topic of cancer. It lays out the history of the treatment of cancer informatively and movingly. It's both heart-wrenching and hopeful, and I was satisfied by the amount of facts that I had never before encountered in popular science media. It wasn't a boring rehash of known bits and pieces. It was truly profound, and I am so glad that I took the time to watch every minute.
