This groundbreaking analysis reveals how more than 100 years ago, the English scientist Dr. John Beard uncovered not only the likely origins of cancer but also its solution. Dr. Gonzalez explains Dr. Beard's underlying theory from the perspective of contemporary molecular biology and explores Dr. Beard's pioneering use of pancreatic enzymes for cancer treatment. This book also showcases a series of case histories describing cancer patients successfully treated with pancreatic enzymes by Dr. Gonzalez and Dr. Isaacs.

This book is intended for general informational purposes, not as a medical manual or a how-to book for self-treatment. Please consult with your physician before starting or modifying any treatment program.

From the Back Cover:

Suzanne Somers, author of Knockout:

“Discover this book and discover the real possibility that cancer can be treated without toxic chemicals and through a purely natural, proven protocol. The cancer theories of Dr. John Beard flourish today in the work of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez. Don't let the established medical community stifle this effective treatment again as they did in the early 1900s.”

J. P. Jones, Ph.D., retired Vice President of Research and Development, The Procter & Gamble Company:

“During my research career in industry, I became convinced that one had to be a student of past research to optimize current and future research efforts. In this context, the 100-year-old cancer enzyme theory of Dr. John Beard—who seems to have discovered stem cells among his other achievements—deserves a new look as it is successfully practiced today under the scientific leadership of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez. Everyone interested in cancer, or how medical research should work, should read this book.”
