One of the wildest stories in medical history! In 1924, Harry Hoxsey claimed a cure for cancer, herbal formulas he inherited from his great-grandmother. Thousands of patients swore the treatment cured them. But medical authorities branded Hoxsey the worst quack of the century, and so began a medical war continuing to this day.
By the 1950s, Hoxsey’s Texas cancer clinic was the world’s largest, with branches in 17 states. Two Federal courts upheld his treatment’s “therapeutic value.” Even his arch-enemy, the American Medical Association, admitted it does cure some cases. Yet organized medicine banned the therapy, exiling it to Mexico where it still claims an 80% success rate today.
Why won’t medical authorities investigate the treatment? Hoxsey charged a “conspiracy” to suppress alternative therapies. Was Hoxsey a hoax? Or was he “The Quack Who Cured Cancer”?
“Fascinating, intelligent, and a riveting slice of Americana—SEE IT!”
“Excellent, really well put together and thought provoking.”
