Ida Honorof interviews Dr. Irwin Bross, Director of the Roswell Park Memorial Institute for Cancer Research, at his home in Eggersville, NY. Bross has been an outspoken critic of "The War on Cancer", arguing that much of the money for cancer research has been wasted on "scientific boondoggles" such as the cancer vaccine program, and warns that mammography not only has limited value in detecting breast cancer but that CAT scanning may, in fact, be harmful to patients. This is part one. Part two of the interview was broadcast on March 26, 1979. The archives currently only holds part one of this interview.
