• Ch. 3: Little Things: "Little things that happened that show how things really laid."

• Ch. 4: The Human Trials: "The FDA, and The National Cancer Society didn't trust Sloan-Kettering to host these clinical trials, there was too much of a chance they would turn out positive, so they got the nation's leading Laetrile opponent to host the human trials. These trials were set up to fail."

• Ch. 5: Just Another Fraud: "Everyone should know that the "war on cancer" is largely a fraud, and that the National Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society are derelict in their duties to the people who support them." - Linus Pauling, biochemist and the only solo winner of two Nobel Prizes in history.

• Ch. 6: The First Raid: When Laetrile use began reaching its height in the USA, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) began raiding manufacturing facilities and clinics that were making or dispensing the substance. The FDA and News organizations worked in concert to broadcast the first Laetrile raid on US soil.

• Ch. 7: Laetrile as the Bogeyman: "Once Laetrile began to gain traction, even if found to be ineffective, everyone agreed that it was non-toxic. So the establishment re-branded Laetrile as a toxic drug to try to sway the public from seeking it."
