This book is the story about how a reputable researcher (PhD in Agricultural Biochemistry and Nutrition from Rutgers University and MA in Nutrition Science from Cornell University) came to show that shark cartilage has properties that can benefit people based on the process of antiangiogenesis. When a tumor grows, the collection of cells generate new vascularity around it to bring the tumor nutrients so it can grow more. Antiangiogenesis inhibits the growth of new vascularity (blood vessels), so the tumor is starved and reduced.
If you pay attention to news programs about cancer, there have been several that have talked about new ways to do this based on antiangiogenesis demonstrated by the shark cartilage studies. Some of them have been chemical or physical ways. None that I have seen work too well and they tend to have bad side effects.
I read this book first when my Mom got cancer. Her diagnosis was advanced, aggressive and they didn't give her a year. She lived nearly eight more good years. My sister was diagnosed with cancer too. When taking shark cartilage, she said she could feel the size of the tumor reduced. After surgery, she refused chemotherapy. And, seven years later is doing great - still taking shark cartilage. Now, I have a large benign tumor. Among other things I'm doing for my health, I'm now taking shark cartilage. It makes sense to me. One doctor suggested a more invasive treatment, embollization (sp?), which would cut off nutrients to the tumor, essentially antiangiogenesis.

Some people approach this topic, and the author, with a great deal of aggression but "lead with their chins" in expressing their discontent without having read the material.
First, Dr. Lane (PhD not MD) explains that medical treatment may well be necessary, and he does not advise against it. He does see nutritionally-based therapy as adjunct therapy, although, for some brave souls, or some Stage IV souls (end-of-the-line medically) nutritional therapy may be their lifeline back to health.
Second, he has a PhD in marine biology and well knows that some sharks do get cancer, AS HE EXPLAINS in the opening pages. The types are limited, the incidence quite rare. Title for effect!
Third, this approach is not his idea, as he explains. The anti-vascular factor(s) in cartilage inhibit, or even reverse, neovascularization (vein and artery infrastructure)necessary for tumor growth. Dr. Judah Folkmann of Harvard has been working on this for over 30 years, searching for the active ingredient. In the interim, Dr. Lane suggests using the part of the shark they have been throwing away! It must be processed correctly; it should not be contaminated or deactivated by processing; it must not be "cut" or reduced by additives so the proper dosage can be delivered.
Fourth, shark cartilage is for tumor-based cancers, not blood-based cancers (for further info please see his Immune Power book and MGN-3 data). This is not a cure-all, but for those cancers, such as brain cancer, which do not yield to chemotherapy, where surgery is a problem, where radiation may also do more harm than good...there is still hope.
You actually have to read the book to learn what anecdotal evidence there is.
