Sometimes it’s more profitable for a doctor to use one drug as opposed to another. The New York Times ran this story on their front page describing why doctors are reluctant to prescribe two of the most useful chemotherapy drugs for lymphoma.

Tracing Cancer's Cause

When Maryland firefighters wanted to find out why so many of them had cancer, including non-Hodgkins lymphoma, they suspected they were exposed to toxic chemicals. The Washington Post published a story about their efforts to understand what happened and their search for help with medical coverage and cancer screenings. The Washington Post also published a letter from our Foundation describing the link between lymphoma and chemical exposures.
