Criticism of Siddhartha Mukherjee and his propaganda cancer book
“The Emporer of all Maladies”
“Siddhartha Mukherjee's fascination with cancer is rooted not just in how to fight it, but in where it originated. Discovering almost nothing on the subject, the cancer physician and researcher wrote "Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer," that explores the history of the disease that causes one quarter of all American deaths.”
The above anonymous statement is placed at the above statement by Mukherjee given on Oct. 21, 2010, uploaded on Dec. 1, 2010 at www.poptech.com here:

During this talk, Mukherjee claims he wants and needs to know “what it is he is fighting with regard to cancer?” Evidently he “discovered nothing on the subject” because he did not look and therefore did not see what others have already discovered on cancer.
Here is what is stated about www.poptech.com at its website:
“PopTech is a global network of remarkable people, innovative projects, powerful ideas, and extraordinary conferences that are accelerating positive impact and changing the world.”
If a so called “scientist” is seeking true understanding about the disease of cancer and claims to desire to know “what it is he his fighting”, the first place to begin would be to discover what others have already learned wouldn’t it? But this so called “scientist” actually ignores and disregards a large body of scientific knowledge and facts about cancer in his “quest” to promote the failed dogma of genetics research, but disregarding all the seminal facts and experiments discovered in the laboratory of the genius in Germany Otto Warburg, M.D., Ph.D.(1883-1970), described as the greatest biochemist of the twentieth century, developed over a period of roughly a half century from about 1914-1965, and confirmed in so many other laboratories around the world. Mukherjee skips all this knowledge but has the gall to claim he is a “scientist and cancer researcher and oncologist”! The average lay reader of this mostly worthless propaganda garbage is easily fooled as evidently as the author himself by his blatant and negligent disregard of facts and experiments already demonstrated in Warburg’s laboratory in Germany, one of the top, if not the top, cancer laboratories on the planet then or now.
He also appears to have failed to read and understand many scholarly works of others earlier, like “The Cancer Industry” by Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D., which documented, in about 500 pages and as many references, the dismal failure and corruption of the American Cancer Society and the chief propagandist Mary Lasker, whom he obviously idolizes.
He also evidently failed to read and understand the paper “American Cancer Society America’s Wealthiest ‘Non-Profit’ Institution” by Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., International Journal of Health Services, Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., 1999, demonstrating how this organization has been corrupted over the years by conflicts of interest and big money of pharmaceutical companies which have more money than government.
Dr. Mukherjee is evidently not a scholar at all, but a propagandist whose aim is evidently to write many possibly true but worthless words which divert attention of the gullible lay or even professional reader from the main issue at hand; namely, the corrupt, dismal failure of the cancer generals of the failed war on cancer for about a half century now despite the squandering of over $100 billion, or up to $1 trillion by some estimates, of public and private dollars mostly squandered on worthless and corrupt non research not unlike the worthless book from which Mukherjee reads in this unlightening lecture above.

Continued from above post on S. Mukherjee Cancer Book Criticism:

Obviously Mukherjee is is own favorite author since he does not want to take the time to read and understand what others have done, like the genius in Germany Otto Warburg, M.D., Ph.D., who spent the greater part of his life solving the cancer problem only to be totally ignored and slighted by ignorant non researchers and propagandists like Mukherjee.
The cancer generals not only cannot tell us what cancer is, they cannot tell us how to cure and prevent it in the human body !
Is it any wonder Mukherjee does not know what he faces when he does not look and therefore does not see what others have already done who have gone before? Mukherjee is not a true scientific researcher at all, but a non researcher, muddying up the waters with thousands of irrelevant and worthless words to divert attention from the main issue; namely, that the cancer generals now and before, are guilty of crimes of scientific misconduct, medical quackery, fraud and crimes against humanity and to this day, remain uncharged and unprosecuted for their crimes by the corrupt United States Justice Department!

All approved drugs for cancer treatment are life threatening. So, if a patient dies while under cancer treatment, they could also have died not just from the cancer, but the treatment, and likely did die from the quack non treatment, a fact ignored by him.
The cancer generals have blood on their hands.

“The best physical and chemical methods, however, would not have been able to advance cell physiology, had they not been combined with a simplification of the biological technique. Instead of measuring the flow of blood through the surviving organs, the use of thin tissue slices and of single cells was introduced. Red blood cells-nonnucleated from mammals, and nucleated from birds-were the first materials used to investigate the chemical mechanism of cell respiration. Instead of using green leaves to study photosynthesis, unicellular green algae were introduced; the algae were sometimes replaced by the green grana of spinach chloroplasts or the even smaller green grana of Chlorella produced by exposure to sound waves. In the investigation of cancer cells, ascites cancer cells were substituted for tumours; whole animal cells were replaced by grana of liver cells as early as 1914. In all this experimentation it was always our aim to simplify techniques and to attain a speed and precision comparable to the methods of volumetric chemical analysis. With complicated methods we have never discovered anything significant.”
Otto Warburg, M.D., Ph.D., three time Nobel Prize nominee, 1926, 1931, 1944 for three different pieces of work; cancer, cell respiration and identification of the flavins and of nicotinamide as hydrogen carriers in biological oxidations; three pupils awarded Nobel Prizes in medicine; Otto Meyeroff, Hugo Theorell and Hans Krebs. Only one Nobel Prize was actually awarded in 1931. Page 49 above reference.
Quoted from “Otto Warburg Cell Physiologist Biochemist and Eccentric” by Hans Krebs, M.D. and Roswitha Schmidt, Ph.D., Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1981, page 70.
Obviously the genius in Germany Otto Warburg rigorously followed the well established law of parsimony in science. This is partly why he was so successful and made so many seminal discoveries in cell physiology. Isn’t it a shame the cancer generals either forgot, or never learned, the law of parsimony in science?

Evidently Dr. Mukherjee believes in the complexity of genetics, rather than the simplicity of the conclusions on cancer based on the experiments and facts from the laboratory of the greatest biochemist of the twentieth century Otto Warburg, M.D., Ph.D. who rigorously followed and complied with the long established law of parsimony which Mukherjee evidently does not know or understand or forgot if he ever learned this fundamental law of science. Shame, shame, shame on professor Mukherjee for violating the law of parsimony and the rules of scholarship too. For a scholar to ignore the work of others who have gone before, especially with no disclosure to the unwitting readers, is just about as bad as copying the works of others without crediting them for their work. And shame also on the low level publisher of this worthless garbage of a book which seeks to mislead rather than enlighten the reader.
