The most controversial health title for years. Prior to reading, my impression from media interviews is that the writer has "misunderstood the science" - and wrongly judged a New Zealand inquiry into cervical cancer which criticised the way some women were treated (or not treated).

Absolutely fascinating! It challenges everything you think you know about this so called 'experiment' and it is very convincing. Surprisingly easy to read and rather un-put-downable as well.
