The statistics are scary: by today’s estimates, close to one in two will have cancer in their lifetime and one in four will die from it. Yet, cancer is nothing new and people have been trying to treat it for centuries. In this episode, we explore the surprising history of the field of oncology: from middle-age remedies such as wolf’s tongue, to the tragic fate of Marie Curie and the devotion and dedication of the first doctors to use radiotherapy. We also explore contemporary treatments and possible future solutions to fight the ruthless disease.
