A Shrinking Disease Due to Chronic Sexual Starvation

What is Cancer? Traditionally, medical science has thought of it as an invasive tumor arising spontaneously in an otherwise healthy organism. In contrast, Wilhelm Reich defines cancer not as a tumor--the tumor is merely a late manifestation of the disease--but a systemic disease due to chronic thwaring of natural sexual functioning. In this radically different scientific investigation of a process that ends, literally, in the putrefaction of the living body due to chronic suffocatin of the tissues, Reich has arrived at the conclusion that "cancer is the most significant somatic expression of biophysiological effect of sexual stasis." If this is so, there is a far greater possibility for prevention of cancer than for its treatment.

The Cancer Biopathy is Volume II of The Discovery of the Orgone. Volume I is The Function of the Orgasm.

Wilhelm Reich, a native of Austria, was born in 1897. His many works include Listen, Little Man!, Character Analysis, and The Mass Psychology of Fascism. He died in 1957.
