Beard (no relation to John Beard), formerly of Yale and Chicago Medical School, devised a test which quickly showed the presence of HCGH in a urine specimen—but also measured the quantity. Thus it could gauge the extent of any cancerous action in the person’s body—before that person could otherwise know he had can- cer! The test proved to be 95% accurate. It was called the Beard Anthrone Test for Cancer. Al- though developed in the U.S., it was banned.
In Manila, Manuel D. Navarro, M.D., of the Santo Tomas University Medical School, made modifications to the test and raised its accu- racy in extended tests to 97% (actually 97% to 100%). He reported on its success in 42 cases in the July-August issue of the Santo Tomas Jour- nal of Medicine. This test is commonly known as the Philippine Urinalysis Test for Cancer.
Navarro found the test could forecast can- cer up to two years before it could be detected by present medical techniques.
This quantitative urinalysis is now available in the Philippines and other countries, to de- termine the amount of human chorionic go- nadotropin hormone in the urine. This hor- mone is present in all types of cancer, includ- ing leukemia; and the directions for taking the sample, partial processing, and mailing are not too difficult for the average person. This test is banned in the United States, but individuals have the right to take it by mail.
Dr. Nararro’s method was exhibited at the In- ternational Cancer Congress in Tokyo, but our gov- ernment (NIH), the ACS, and the SKI showed little interest.
It is believed by some that, if a person had advance warning of the onset of the disease, he might take time to think through his treatment options, along with ways to possibly improve his diet and way of life. But, learning later that he has the problem, he is more likely to panic and accept surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.
Here is the formula for the Philippine Test. The following information comes from a book- let, published by the International Health Council: “Do not send a sample from a patient who is pregnant, is using birth control pills or estro- gen or other female hormones, is using toxic chemotherapy, is showing more than 100 mg of albumin or a moderate amount of blood, is bedridden, has lost a lot of weight, had inter- course within 12 hours, or has a badly depleted liver. It takes one month to clear hormones or toxic chemotherapy from the system, so an ac- curate reading can be made.
“A. Urine Sample Processing:
“(I. Gather the following materials: Glass household or lab measuring cups, one to mea- sure 3.3 fluid ounces (100 cc) and one 13.2 fluid ounces (400 cc.); glass funnel or wide-mouth jar; glass or stainless steel stirring rod or spoon; one gallon empty vinegar jug, rinsed out but do not clean with soap or detergent. Get a domes- tic money order from the Post Office for $12.00 (subject to change); one pint or less of Glacial Acetic Acid; one pint or more of Acetone; a few sheets of filter paper, 4-5 inch diameter, 10-12.5 cm. These materials can be secured from a chemical laboratory supply house, medical or surgical supply house, and some drugstores. Some hobby shops selling chemistry sets have filter paper. Photo stores handling dark-room supplies have Glacial Acetic acid.
“(2. Total fluid intake should be restricted before, and during, the urine collection period. Collect all urine voided in a 24-hour period in the clean one-gallon glass bottle. Keep in a cool place. Shake well, record total amount voided.
“(3. Take 3.3 fluid ounces (100 cc) of urine from the gallon bottle.
“(4. Add one tablespoon (15 cc) of Glacial Acetic Acid to the urine sample and stir well. Be careful, this is a powerful acid. Do not in- hale; if splashed, use plenty of water for 15 minutes, to flush.
“(5. Add this mixture to 13.2 fluid ounces (400 cc) of Acetone. Acetone is highly volatile and inflammable, so use it outside and away from sparks and flame. Acetone will dissolve some plastics, so use only glass in handling.
“(6. Stir well and let stand outside for two or more hours.
“(7. Pour off most of the clear fluid, being careful not to lose any sediment.
“(8. Fold a circle of filter paper in half, then one-quarter circle, then one-eighth circle. Open partially and line the inner surface of a glass funnel loosely. If a funnel is not available, hold filter paper cone over a wide-mouth bottle. Pour the balance of the fluid with sediment through the filter paper, catching the sediment in the center of the paper. Be sure to get all the sedi- ment. In the event there is very little sediment, collect a new sample and rerun.
“(9. After drying, trim off excess filter paper, fold over the edges and place between two sheets of plastic. Trim off the surplus plastic and seal edges with Scotch tape.
“(10. Insert the sample in an envelope with: the patient’s name, address, sex, age, to whom report is to be sent, a brief case history, date sample was taken, $12.00 money order, and
