Book Review: Waging War on Cancer by Dr. Robert S. Byars

Book’s synopsis:

Dr. G. Robert Pettit is a man who has dedicated his life to finding cures for cancer. A gifted organic chemist, his search has taken him all over the world, for it is his belief that the most promise lies in naturally occurring compounds which have evolved over billions of years as part of the profound diversity of life on this planet. His search has drawn him across deserts, into jungles, and below the surface of oceans across the planet. A prolific research scientist with over 800 peer reviewed articles and responsible for the discovery and development of numerous anticancer compounds in use today, Dr. Pettit is a man who has saved lives and made a very real difference. This is his story.

My review:

What a great and fantastic read!!!

Reading about Dr Pettit and his passion for finding a cure for cancer from natural sources, I found it fascinating. He is a great man who did (and still is) doing a great job in the war on cancer!!! To me, he is a hero.

As someone who’s life has been touched by cancer (one died of lung cancer and one had throat/esophageal cancer but survived), reading this book reaffirmed my belief that there are good people looking tirelessly for cure for cancer (all of types!!). And that the people who have had cancer are not victims but survivors!!!!

So thank you, Dr Pettit , for your life’s work!!!!
