Alternate Cancer Remedies
It would appear that, at this rate, the book on “unproven methods” will continue to be published, since recognized authorities are not interested in doing any proving.
Medical researchers, we need your help! Please carry out the needed testing on worth- while methods, publish your findings, and de- mand that action be taken on them!
____________________ TESTS FOR CANCER
The American Cancer Society has widely pub- lished the “seven cancer signs.” They are as fol- lows:
Change in bowel or bladder habits.
A sore that does not heal.
Unusual bleeding or discharge.
Thickening lump in breast or elsewhere.
Indigestion or difficulty in swallowing.
Obvious changes in wart or mole.
Nagging cough or hoarseness.
To these the International Health Council (an independent group) adds these four: 8. Any condition that does not respond to treatment. 9. Thrombophlebitis, inflammation from blood clotting in the circulatory system. 10. Putrid intestinal gas. Make a follow-up of all cancer surgery or ra- diation therapy with a test. Obviously, the above signs will only disclose cancer that is fairly advanced. Are there no tests which disclose very early cancer development within the human body?
In the previous chapter, we learned that it is dangerous to have an orthodox cancer test taken, called a “biopsy,”—for it requires cutting into the cancer tissue, thereby letting it spread to other parts of the body.
Are there no safe tests for cancer? In this chap- ter we will list two:
The following tests have been developed to help a person know whether cancer is begin- ning to develop within his body. These tests will tell him whether he has cancer—long be- fore the pain, which informs him that he has advanced cancer, and it is felt.
We are told that, at any stage in the develop- ment of cancer, the following tests can be made. Fortunately, neither one requires a biopsy which involves slicing into the cancer tissue, thus per- mitting it to more rapidly metastasize (spread) to other locations in the body.
LOCAL TESTS You will want to purchase the book, Gerson Prime , from the Gerson Institute, and then turn to the chapter on testing. It will explain in some detail how to interpret lab tests which you can have done locally.

Generally the first, the urine test is quite adequate to provide the needed informa- tion.
THE BEARD-NAVARRO URINE TEST (“THE PHILIPPINE TEST”)
You will recall, in the article in this book on laetrile (pp. 117-129), that John Beard theorized that the trophoblast in early pregnancy and the cancer cell are essentially the same.
That 1911 theory was totally ignored and for- gotten for decades. Later researchers, quite un- aware of Beard’s work, independently discovered a connection between cancer and pregnancy (but not that either one causes the other!).
In 1927, two German scientists, Ascheim and Zondek, produced the A-Z Pregnancy Test, which was the basis for all subsequent pregnancy tests. Other researchers eventually identified the human chorionic gonadoptropin hormone (HCGH) as the active substance in the test.
Then Dr. C.D. Cori reported in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, that the same substance was in the urine of cancer patients. In 1944, Dr. A. Roffo, an Argentine researcher, found that the hormone was in 100% of 1,000 cancer patients, and none in 1,000 people who did not have can- cer.
In 1946, Krebs, Jr., and Gurchot isolated HCGH in the urine of males with cancer. They found that it was broken up by the pancreatic en- zyme, chymotrypsin. This agreed with John Beard’s theory.
Aware of these developments, Dr. Howard H.
