Cancer Control Society

Reprinted from "Los Angeles" Magazine, Vol. 41, No. 12
December 1996

In the raging war for Alternative Cancer Therapies, Lorraine Rosenthal is a crusader. As a lab technician working on cancer research for the City of Hope, Lorraine was impressed by reports on nutritional approaches to cancer therapy. In 1973, she left her job to open a health food store, then co-founded the L.A. based Cancer Control Society. Early days of denunciation have given way to grudging acceptance by the medical establishment. In part, it's because doctors are overwhelmed: in 1994, Los Angeles County had 13,550 cancer deaths. Treating cancer with anything other than surgery, radiation or chemotherapy remains a felony in California--and Rosenthal says she would not remain in the state if she had cancer. She acts primarily as an educator through the Cancer Control Society, offering a referral service to clinics in other states and in Mexico and Europe. These clinics are now in some cases covered by U.S. insurance.  -S.S.
