A Promising Answer to Cancer

For Immediate Release

In the groundbreaking book The Trophoblast and the Origins of Cancer, the author, Nicholas J. Gonzalez, MD, presents the pioneering work of Dr. John Beard, the English scientist who 100 years ago may have solved the cancer riddle. It was Dr. Beard who first suggested that pancreatic enzymes, above and beyond their well-known digestive function, represent the body’s main defense against cancer. In Trophoblast, Dr. Gonzalez shows how contemporary molecular biology proves much of what Dr. Beard said about cancer, its origins, and its effective treatment with enzymes.

For nearly three decades, Dr. Gonzalez has been studying and enlarging on the work of Dr. Beard, which was nearly lost to history. Today in his practice, Dr. Gonzalez and his colleague and co-author Dr. Linda Isaacs employ the enzyme therapy with considerable success in patients diagnosed with advanced cancer.

In her bestselling book Knockout, an investigation of promising cancer treatments, the author Suzanne Somers prominently featured Dr. Gonzalez’s nutritional/enzyme treatment. Dr. Gonzalez, along with Ms. Somers, appeared on the Larry King Show, the television show EXTRA, and the Dennis Miller Show on national radio. His approach has also been highlighted in many major media venues over the years including The New Yorker and Prevention.

For the past several years, Dr. Gonzalez has been working on a series of books explaining the theory and practice of his therapy. The first, Trophoblast, though scientifically backed and well-referenced from the medical literature, was nonetheless written for a general audience. As one reader commented, “You write so clearly that even the layperson can follow the medical side of the treatment and why it works.”

Dr. Gonzalez is a graduate of Brown University (Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude) with a degree in English Literature. He subsequently worked as a journalist for seven years, first at Time Inc. He then completed his premedical studies at Columbia University and his medical education at Cornell University Medical College. While a medical student he began investigating the work of Dr. Beard under the direction of Robert A. Good, M.D., Ph.D., at the time President of Sloan-Kettering. Dr. Gonzalez subsequently completed immunology fellowship training, before opening a practice in New York in 1987. His innovative research has been funded by Procter & Gamble, Nestle, and the National Institutes of Health.

Isaacs, M.D. Original edition. 7 x 10, 220 pages, full color illustrations and index. ISBN 978-0-9821965-0-2. $49.95. Available from and at Available to libraries from Quality Books, Inc.
