MEDIA REVIEWS
"A strongly worded alert to the environmental causes of breast cancer, and an equally strong call for political and personal action. . . . Sherman lays the burden of escalating breast cancer rates squarely at the feet of environmental polluters. . . . [Sherman's] arguments are compelling . . . true advances in conquering cancer will only come when we 'understand the connection between the loss of personal health and worldwide pollution from toxic chemicals, ionizing radiation, and endocrine-altering chemicals.' . . . Valuable warnings for women and a passionate, well-based explanation of one particular medical viewpoint."
-"Kirkus, February 15, 2000
..."Rachel Carson introduced the public to the links between pollution and breast cancer in her groundbreaking Silent Spring...."[Life's Delicate Balance] serves as a continued clarion call to clean up the environment....it provides a riveting account of corporate and institutional (mis)investments in the Cancer Wars. Recommended for public libraries."
-"Library Journal, 2/00
"A study of toxic factors in the environment that cause cancer, this book explains causes of the disease and discusses political and economic factors that perpetuate the cancer epidemic."
-"Acres U.S.A., November 2001
