Reviews

"A New War on Cancer, Pittsburgh's Kristina Marusic's deeply reported book about the environmental causes of cancer, is infuriating, sobering and challenging.... Her passionate, advocacy journalism interweaves the stories of people on the front lines of environmental activism with facts that make you wonder how the fossil fuel industry continues to get away with making us sick."
-- "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"

"In this series of engaging profiles linked by an overarching investigation into the negative impacts of chemical pollution, readers will find themselves learning from researchers, health advocates, lawyers, and community activists about the many insidious ways cancer has been invited into our daily lives....This is a surprising and significant look at cancer research, an eye-opening book readers will feel compelled to talk about with everyone they know."
-- "Booklist, Starred"

"In this big-hearted book, Kristina Marusic profiles the everyday champions of the most important battlefront in the 'war on cancer' the too-often overlooked movement to prevent environmental illness instead of just to survive it."
-- "Dan Fagin, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation"
