It is important to understand that Ralph Moss is not a medical doctor and the advice he gives is not intended to supplement or replace that given by your physician. Investigating the claims of people who treat cancer is his full-time job.

In pursuing this goal, he not only studies the relevant scientific literature, but frequently travels the world in search of doctors, clinics and hospitals offering new and effective approaches. He also investigates new food supplements and other purported treatments. Dr. Moss maintains an attitude of "friendly skepticism." While he is open to credible new treatment options, both conventional and alternative, he demands proof of both their safety and effectiveness. He will not be swayed by anything less than rigorous scientific evidence.

A phone consultee recently wrote:

"I'm so glad that I arranged for the phone consultation with Dr. Moss. Once again I found myself stumbling through the myriad of promised cancer 'cures' and growing weary as I treaded water in search of continued cancer treatment, then I remembered that help was just a phone call away. The information Dr. Moss provided was very valuable. He answered all of my questions and educated me on several therapy options, offering phone numbers, emails and website information, leading me in directions I had not previously considered. His expertise and years of research helped me narrow my search towards a better plan. I felt that he genuinely valued my input and was compassionate about my story. Once again, his readily-shared knowledge was a lifebuoy. I'm extremely grateful! I'm back on shore, steady on my feet and ready for battle." --Pamela B., Kansas
