We’re always on the lookout for relevant and educational information to include on Civilian Exposure.

This new PBS documentary series by Ken Burns on cancer will be thought-provoking and useful for those that want to see the entire scope of the impact of cancer in our world.

The following is the third of four episodes we will share. Look for the next episode to be posted in the coming weeks.

 

The Blind Men and the Elephant
Original Air Date: March 31, 2015

This episode picks up the story in the wake of the declaration of a “war on cancer” by Richard Nixon in 1971 and the search for a cure. In the lab, rapid progress is made in understanding the essential nature of the cancer cell, leading to the revolutionary discovery of the genetic basis of cancer, but few new therapies become available.
