Sharks Don't Get Cancer
Their 1992 book Sharks Don't Get Cancer by I. William Lane, helped to sell extracts of shark cartilage as cancer prevention treatments. Sharks can actually suffer from cancer. Reports of carcinomas in sharks exist, and current data do not allow any speculation about the incidence of tumors in sharks.
