Wilhelm Reich's most detailed review of his experiments in the U.S. outside of his psychiatric practice. In this text he explains thoroughly HIS discovery of the Orgone (chi, prana, ki) and its origins (I emphasize HIS discovery because every person stands to discover something different as it relates to them). He found it to be a cosmic energy, all pervading, emanating towards healthy life, healing, and protecting. He used it in several documented cases to cure cancer (thus the title). He experimented with it in combating nuclear radiation (and made one of his leaps into metaphysics), stating that orgone energy and nuclear radiation are opposing forces (the manifestations of good and evil). This point is highly controversial and became a jump off point for his desires to show people what he had spent his life doing, and how his ostrisisation from the mainstream medical societies he once was a part of was un-called for. He and his staff encounter an unnatural resistance to disease, increased eyesight (no need to wear glasses), increased circulation, and other positive reactions to daily orgone accumulation. The very same accumulators are described in this book, and even more on the internet... what more to say? Wilhelm Reich is considered to be a quack by most people, and yet no one denies he actually cured the people he had in his care through the use of a 'box' (that used no electricity, and is only made of alternating layers of steel wool, and lambs wool), in which the patients sat for 30 min. to an hour. As always, read for yourself, find someone with an orgone energy accumulator, feel and experience for yourself.
