"Rethinking Cancer" Movie Trailer

This movie and the organization that created it, Foundation for Advancement in Cancer Therapy (F.A.C.T.), "an international nonprofit organization providing information and referrals to [cancer] patients ... seeking a different direction from standard toxic protocols, such as chemotherapy and radiation," just came to my attention through Dr. Bernie Siegel's ECaP ("Exceptional Cancer Patient") discussion forum:

In my view the best holistic approaches to cancer would need to include nutrition, energy healing, meditation, as well as psychological support both for the patient and his or her loved ones. We are all physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual creatures, and our diseases have their root causes in imbalances in all these areas, as well as in imbalances in our physical and social environments. "Rethinking Cancer" tells us about setting right at least some of these imbalances.

Foundation for Advancement in Cancer Therapy F.A.C.T. has been around for over 40 years and has been educating the public about non-toxic therapies since the start of the alternative movement in the early 1970's.
Unlike other organizations supporting a non-toxic approach, F.A.C.T. has consistently worked with doctors and practitioners to get correct information and to explain the misinformation out there AND they only exist through donations for their books and materials they aren't selling vitamins or other things that are many times gimmicks.
This is a must know organization for anyone wanting to learn about alternative cancer therapies and good nutrition and health. Their Resource page has a wealth of information.
I was introduced to F.A.CT. in 1987 when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and no organization has compared to the vast information on alternative, non-toxic therapies.
