“I stopped working as a surgeon in about 1998. I did it for twenty years, and I found that we really hadn’t made that much progress. We were still doing surgery, radiation, chemotherapy — maybe slightly different: We weren’t doing as much surgery and maybe we were doing more chemotherapy than when I started, but really we were still doing the same things — what I’ve been known to call ‘Slash, burn, and poison,’ which are very crude ways of dealing with a disease. That’s what you do when you don’t understand it. And I really felt like I needed to get more involved in figuring out how to stop it.”
