Susan Wadia-Ells is an investigative journalist and cultural change agent. After losing too many friends to recurrent metastatic breast cancer, after having been successfully treated early for breast cancer, they each died a very early and painful death.
Busting Breast Cancer is the result of the author's determination and self-imposed poverty, as she spent twelve year researching and writing this definitive work on why US women now face an unnecessary breast cancer epidemic, instigated by pink ribbons and toxic mammograms and crowned by the growing, yet still publicly undisclosed, recurrent metastatic breast cancer epidemic that is reaping increasing profits for cancer industry investors.
Dr Wadia-Ells enjoyed a decade-long experience during the 1970s, organizing fellow women employees; then creating and managing the Fortune 200 company's affirmative action plan. She later created national independent conferences on cutting edge feminist topics, raised a son and worked as a reporter for the award-winning small town newspaper, The Brattleboro Reformer. She has also lived and/or worked on cross-cultural communication and development projects in Iran, India, Brazil and Zimbabwe.
Dr Wadia-Ells holds a BA degree in political science from Hood College, a MALD degree from The Fletcher School (Tufts University) in political economy and a PhD in Women's Studies from The Union Institute. She has published two prior books on women's adoption experiences and on the biological connection between birth control drugs and breast cancer. She lives in Manchester by the Sea, MA.
