Carol Petersen, RPh, CNP,  reviews the book Cracking Cancer Toolkit which was written by Jeffrey Dach, MD, who is a practicing physician, originally board certified in Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology. In 2005, Dr. Dach retired from radiology and resumed outpatient clinical medicine in a small office in Davie, Florida. He is the author of Heart Book, Bioidentical Hormones 101 and Natural Medicine 101. He is co-author of Stop the Thyroid Madness Vol.2. Dr. Dach lives in Hollywood, Florida, and is married, with three adult married children, and three grandchildren. 

“After three family members were stricken with aggressive cancer, I realized I had to get up to speed on the jargon of cancer research, and devise my own cancer toolkit of repurposed drugs and supplements if I wanted my loved ones to survive. This book is a record of that journey as we explore "Cancer as a Metabolic Disease" and the repurposed drugs and supplements targeting metabolic pathways for eradication of cancer stem cells. The problem is not about finding the one elusive anti-cancer drug or botanical substance. The problem is that we have too many anti-cancer substances to choose from. How do we narrow down the list and use them in an effective combination? Hopefully, this book will give you the information needed to select a few key repurposed drugs and supplements to target Cancer Stem Cells and the important metabolic pathways in a synergistic manner, resulting in the desired curative efficacy.” –Jeffrey Dach, MD

Big box book stores and Amazon bring us sources of information that used to be almost impossible to access. A book written by someone with direct personal experience is priceless. Many have turned to writing books to disseminate information that could never be heard or discussed otherwise.

In 2004 Dr. Marcia Angell, now former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, blew the whistle on the corruption of medical science by the pharmaceutical industry in her book “The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It” Medical literature has sold out. Studies have been fabricated or information altered to align with a predetermined narrative. The average person has little opportunity to successfully find useful information nor the means to use that information for practical application to a health issue.

Richard Nixon’s “War on Cancer” has succeeded only in making the cancer industry a cancer itself upon society. Tremendous monetary gains keep the chemo, radiation, and surgery narrative the only choice. Deviation can cost careers and livelihood for practitioners and investigators.

There are cracks in the narrative, however. Dr. Jeffrey Dach found himself face to face with serious cancer challenges to family members. His training in radiology gave him a platform to launch his investigation and he worked tirelessly to find information that could change a deadly outcome. His searches cover 5 years of study. He investigated out practitioners and scientists who might have insights. In the end, his family members had successful outcomes.

He has decided to share the information he accumulated. “Cracking Cancer Toolbox” is not a protocol nor a recipe for success for any particular cancer. It is, however, a gateway to learning much more about cancer than the average oncologist will relate to their patients.  Knowledge is power. Reading this book and keeping it as a reference will open doors to learning new theories and potential therapies. Many therapies already exist but have been unused because of strict adherence to the narrative.

Dr. Dach presents us with the gift of translation. His writing is clear and understandable. We don’t have to have a Ph.D. or medical degree to grasp concepts that come cloaked in medical jargon. This compilation of cancer information is a great work. He sends it into the world so many more can benefit.

“Cracking Cancer Toolkit, explains the metabolic theory of cancer and other novel theories in a comprehensible writing style, understandable to the non-medical reader. Given how common cancer is today, this book is a valuable addition to any home library. Indeed, the knowledge you gain may save your life, or the life of a friend or family member.” – Akbar Khan, MD
