Three ways to get 'News you can use' on cancer today

CANCERactive - empowering you with the very latest news and information

CANCERactive produces icon magazine (Integrative Cancer and Oncology News), a unique 6-monthly magazine which goes into more than 640 hospitals and cancer centres throughout the UK. It is written by journalists so it is in an easy-to-understand language, not ´Doctor-speak´. Over time, all the articles end up on the CANCERactive website. The magazine leads the way in Integrative Oncology in Britain, informing people, empowering people, to understand just how to add elements into their treatment programme to increase their personal odds of survival.

In every issue of icon, we have a section called Cancer Watch. This covers the very latest news and information sent to us from around the globe. The magazine also has sections on individual cancers, news topics, ´Living Proof´ (stories of people who beat a cancer), articles on emerging therapies, or alternative therapies, and complementary therapies plus the latest research results on new drugs, new treatments and even newly discovered causes. We regularly feature sections on nutrition and lifestyle, and toxins in this chemical world. 
At CANCERactive we have three sources of information on cancer

If you are just looking for the very latest news stories on cancer CLICK HERE to go to Cancer Watch on the CANCERactive website. There you will find ´News you can Use´ today, not stories about some drug that maybe coming in ten years time!

But if you want more, including the latest articles and interviews with patients and professors - YOU CAN SIGN UP TO DOWNLOAD icon MAGAZINE, by making an annual DONATION.  Please email: for further details.

All of the above is Edited and produced by Chris Woollams who has become the Leader in Integrative Oncology in the UK.
