The theory that malignant cancers are false-placentas (partial pregnancies) was first formulated by the Scottish embryologist John Beard in 1902. Beard found that substances secreted by the pancreas would inhibit the growth of cancers before they develop but are missing in the blood of cancer patients. These substances, the digestive enzymes trypsin (and the trypsin precursor chymotrypsin), reportedly “cure” (digest) 100% of fast-growing cancers when taken orally at an extremely high dosage. This author has found evidence that it may be possible to achieve the same cancer-digestive effect, with lower enzyme dosages, by enhancing trypsin's enzyme activity with certain supplements.

It appears the pancreas has a lot to do with cancer!


The pancreas produces the protein dissolving enzymes trypsin (and its precursor chymotrypsin) that Beard believed prevents germ cells from becoming malignant. The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes into the small intestine where they help digest “cooked” or denatured proteins. Some of these enzymes enter the blood stream. In theory, when the pancreas is healthy, early-stage cancers (false pregnancies) are destroyed (digested) by pancreatic enzymes in the blood.

Cancer is best understood as pancreas failure to produce trypsin, in the same way that Diabetes (Type I) is a failure of the pancreas to produce insulin. Beard believed that when the health of the pancreas becomes impaired and the output of pancreatic enzymes declines or stops, any malignant cancer cell that begins dividing grows out of control.

Lots of excellent info here:

I am amazed that no one has anything to add to this post. This is interesting information on possible cures for answer from reliable sources. Cancer has touched probably everyone's lives in one way or another. I have a brother who died of cancer!

If I developed cancer, I would have as much removed as possbile and then do no chemo or radiation, but take care of myself from that point on!

This is very similar info as in the first post, but from another credible source. This is something that should be taken seriously by anyone with cancer or who knows someone that has it!

I am confused. This thread shows some excellent information on a cure for cancer and I can't believe no one has any interest in it? Not even any doctors or research people out here? Nothing??

It would be nice to see someone with a medical background's comments on this. As a cancer survivor I'm defiantly interested. I'm no medical expert but if there is truth to the fact that the pancreas is important for fighting cancer cells, then one would think that the chemotherapy attacking all fast growing cells in the body would in fact hinder any activity of the organ.

Yes.....from what I researched, if anyone has done chemo or radiation, this treatment will not work unfortunately. It suggests if you need something removed, have it removed and then go right into the treatments listed...

I'd love an opinion from someone with a medical background also....

I would too. Is there anything to this information about the pancreas? Is it as important to our health as this thread suggests? And if so, why isn't there more information readily available about what we should be doing to keep our pancreas healthy?

That the pancreas might be the 'center' of the physiological universe
shouldn't come as some great surprise: we eat, the food is broken down
and we absorb the molecules to sustain our bodies.

This process of life by the constant dissolution of form doesn't just
obtain with food-stuffs, it must also obtain in dissolving the
dead or damaged stuff of our bodies. Thus, part and parcel to this
is an awareness imposed that the body is recreating itself in place.

Sexual reproduction is simply the same thing going on with humanity
writ-large what is going on with any individual as they persist
in time and place.

Part of the logical correlates of this manner of reasoning is that
there is some normal resource for an individual that can permit any
organ or tissue to reproduce.

This logically leads us to the idea of so-called 'stem cells' or
diploid totipotent cells that can differentiate into any tissue
whatever . . . as required due to age, damage or inappropriateness.

We know now that all cancers are possessed of characteristics that
are only shared by two other cells normal to the life-cycle: trophoblasts
or the primary cells involved in implantation of the zygote which later
form the entire placental tissues and so-called 'germ cells'.

So we might also say there are three cell types that have characteristics
that exist quite apart from any 'somatic' cells, since 'germ cells'
ultimately can only be connected primally to 'stem cells'.

We are learning more about this every day. And there is some confusion
about these terms 'stem cells' or 'totipotent' cells and 'germ' cells.

'Germ' cells are specifically defined as those which will develope into
sperm or ova. These are cells that have a particularly different
character than any other cells in the adult or 'imago': they can
reduce-divide so that their 'ultimate form' has only half the
complement of the genome. They are thus termed 'haploid' cells
which will result in a 'dependent' phase: meaning, they must be
united with another 'haploid' cell to become 'diploid totipotent'.

We say 'totipotent' because such union - - - through sex - - - results
in the zygote and the ultimate complete individual cell or source of

All along this cycle, digestive enzymes can be said to represent
a kind of 'vital force' enabling the oncoming being or fetus.

In the earliest phase, the primary digestive enzymes are actually quite
antithetical to the 'host' or mother. They are the enzymes of cancer
which are primordial and belong to the placental cells or trophoblasts.

They are erosive, invasive and metastatic. This is the required
property of cells that mediate the implantation of the zygote and
allow for internal gestation.

Contrawise, the mother presents enzymes that limit this growth, and
this 'limiting force' is the maternal pancreatic enzymes, as suggested
by John Beard and fully confirmed by various methods of scientific

When the mother and fetal pancreatic enzymes are acting together,
the placental or trophoblastic universe begins to degrade and become
inactive resulting ultimately in the process of birth. The exact same
process, we believe, takes place in all so-called 'spontaneous
remissions' of cancer and so-called 'shelling out' of tumors of any
class or distinction of the universe of trophoblastic disease or
what we see as 'cancers'.

There are many aspects to this process that are yet to be fully
elucidated, but the basic format of seeing the digestive enzymes
or hydrolytic enzymes normal to the pancreatic function or their
function outside the digestive tract, can illuminate how various
empirical practices result in remission or regressions or perfect
verus imperfect 'cures'.

Some of these 'cures' apply to augmenting functionality of these
enzymes, some to nourishing the synthetic or normal bodily formation
of these enzymes, some to aspects of ideal pH for activity of
enzymes that do the work, some to inhibiting the deleterious
or so-called 'anti-enzymes' that emanate from cancer/trophoblast
cells and so on.

We have as the work ahead of us, to address the rational method
for also adressing all forms of cancer. One thing is certain: the
basis of all cancers is trophoblastic - - - which is a normal
component of the life-cycle. There is no question that the resolution of
this cell-type is also possessed by the body or exists in the
normal genetic make-up. There is no need to resort to 'exotic'
ideas or to believe that 'cancer' is somehow universally a product of
some genetic flaw. The flaw is obviously in life-style and
malnutrition. When we feed the pancreas, the pancreas feeds us.

Needless to say, any factor that debilitates the pancreas results
in problems like cancer and not only cancer, but many other
forms of debility. For this reason, the concept of a 'chronic
pancreatic insuffiency' has been developed.

This, in turn revolves on at least two major issues: malnutrition
and enzyme inhibitions or destructions.

In the sphere of malnutrition, one aspect of this is that the dietary
of modern man has insufficient dietary enzymes. This is directly
attributable to the fact that cooking and 'pasteurization' destroys
food enzymes. Food enzymes actually deburden or save our
pancreas from having to do extra work. Foods will naturally
'auto-digest' in the cardiac-stomach so as to limit the need for
our own pancreas from producing enzymes to break foods down.

When foods are cooked, these extrinsic enzymes are destroyed and
then our pancreas must do all the work.

Howell has written much on this, and points to the fact that this
extra work results in pancreatic inflammation and potentially
to pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer! Imagine that!

The other aspect in this regard is environmental enzyme destroyers or
inhibitors. Just two to contemplate: organophosphates or insecticides
and heavy metals.

Do some research. Immuno-enzyme therapy is not 'hocus pocus' but
is based on the first rational approach to cancer and based on
the careful reasoning of John Beard, and embryologist, and who has
been fully confirmed at least in regard to the trophoblastic fact of
cancer. The enzyme treatment of cancer can have many different
avenues of approach. We have as of yet to provide by careful study
the most efficient application of these facts into a spectrum
of treatments in all stages. Obviously, later stages must have
many other concerns than early stages. We know in later stages
greater care must be applied with regard to the kidneys and liver or
eliminative systems.

As it exists today, Immuno-enzymology is applied in a blanket and
unrefined way. The lack of refinement of this is entirely
a matter of ignorance and lack of money or universal support by
so-called 'science centers' involved in 'medicine'. To bring these
resources to bear will ultimately rely on the objection of the people
affected by means of their representatives or by boycotting the
standard dogma - - - read ignorance - - - of 'oncology'.
