Integrative Cancer and Oncology News - The Unique Cancer Magazine
Integrative Cancer and Oncology News

Integrative Cancer and Oncology News - icon - is a unique magazine which brings to anyone and everyone touched by cancer the very latest news and information on anything and everything that might help. Twice per year. It is free in over 640 hospitals, cancer centres and health libraries in the UK.

Our information is always presented in an interesting, readable and easily understandable format. At all times, we endeavour to be impartial, independent in presenting our findings, and having a clear focus on the needs of all people touched by cancer.

Our aim is simply to empower people to make more informed personal choices and so increase their odds of survival. For us, the building of Integrative programmes - using Integrative Oncology - using the best of orthodox and complementary and emerging cancer treatments is the future of cancer treatment. Uniquely in the UK, we bring it to you today. (
