Do I Have an Environmental Disease?

Recognition and Prevention of the Causes of Cancer and Chronic Diseases-

Walter Wortberg

Despite new scientific possibilities in diagnostics and therapy, chronic diseases – including cancer – continue to increase dramatically. This is not only a threat to peoples’ health, but also a financial problem. A new perspective is necessary: instead of treating symptoms, more causal research needs to be conducted, taking into account environmental causes for these diseases. Citing numerous examples, the study makes a strong case for therapy beyond classic academic medicine and encourages those affected by environmental stress to take their health into their own hands.

1.A greeting to a more human world (Dr. P. Jennrich)

We hold in our hands the fruit of a committed general and environmental physician’s 25 years of experience. Now, everyone who is prepared to widen their horizon and to question deadlocked dogmas can take part in this experience.

Walter Wortberg’s book is an urgent plea for more justice and humanity in medicine, something from which each single individual can profit just as much as our healthcare system as a whole.

In addition, Walter Wortberg demonstrates that as a civilization, we are almost ready to saw off the tree branch on which we sit—we are, however, no longer using a simple hand saw but, following the spirit of our time, attack it with a chainsaw. Everybody can do his part to help effect the necessary and long-overdue global changes. This with-and-for-each-other starts with how we treat nature, animals, and our fellow human beings.

I wish for this book, which grants us insights into its author’s life’s work, to effect those changes that are so close to the author’s heart.
