Out of placed,

Cancer, including canine osteosarcoma, describes a rapidly growing malignant tumor, which, if allowed to grow unrestrained, will result in death.

“Many clinicians have the mistaken belief that cancer is complex; a number of different diseases, each having its own cause,” states Dr. William D. Kelley, author of One Answer to Cancer and creator of nutritional Metabolic Medicine. “Nothing could be further from the truth.”

The direct cause of cancer is an out-of-place reproductive cell, an ectopic germ cell, that changes into an ectopic trophoblast, which is an out-of-place placenta cell. What this essentially means is: cancer is a “baby” growing outside of the uterus, anywhere in the body.

Haven’t heard of this before? Take a minute. Get comfortable with the idea because there is a heck of a lot of evidence to support the concept. And the theory is not new.

Embryologist Dr. John Beard, Professor, University of Edinburgh, Scotland discovered the cause of all cancers and published a paper on The Unitarian Trophoblastic Theory of cancer in 1902.

To explain, in the human life cycle, when the male sperm unites with the female egg, three basic kinds of cells are created:

    1. Primitive germ cells
    2. Normal body or somatic cells
    3. Trophoblast cells

By day three, the fertilized egg has fallen into the uterus. Now, the trophoblast cells of pregnancy are typical cancer cells. They eat into the uterine lining to secure the baby in the uterus and prepare the “nest.”

During this time, and for about seven weeks afterward, the trophoblast cells (cancer cells) grow very aggressively, surrounding the primitive germ cells, and normal body or somatic cells.

Having been secured by the trophoblasts, the baby is held in place the mother’s uterus. So the trophoblast cells (cancer cells) continue to grow rapidly, forming the placenta to nourish the baby. Well supplied with food, and nestled in the mother, the baby (embryo) can continue to grow safely until birth.

But there’s another aspect to this story. The trophoblasts would continue growing and the cancer of pregnancy would ensue to kill the mother and baby post haste unless something told them to stop.

This happens on the 56th day of gestation when the fetal pancreas starts producing pancreatic enzymes. The fetus doesn’t have, or need, a functioning digestive system at this time. All nutrients are coming to it through the umbilical cord from the mother. So these enzymes must have another function, thought Beard.

He concluded that pancreatic enzymes, in addition to their obvious digestive role, also play a part in “digesting” the placental trophoblastic tissue and (later in life) trophoblast-like cancer cells.

To underline this conclusion, in every species Beard investigated, when the pancreas turned on, it ended the growth of the trophoblast cells of pregnancy. The trophoblast cells of pregnancy behave exactly like cancer cells.

Back to the embryo: as the new embryo (baby) is being formed from normal somatic cells, the primitive germ cells (pre-placenta cells) continue to multiply. In a few days, when the embryo (baby) develops to the proper stage, the primitive germ cells stop multiplying and begin to migrate to the gonads (ovaries or testes).

Around three billion of these primitive germ cells fatigue. Without the vital force necessary, they never reach the gonads. This means that dispersed throughout your body, there are two germ cells for every area the size of a pinhead, any one of them, a potential cancer. That’s the reason cancer can form anywhere in the body.

All that is necessary to form a cancer is a lack of pancreatic enzymes, a sex hormonal imbalance, which can happen at any time, but usually occurs between ages 45 and 60, and the embryonic destiny of a basic germ cell to form a placenta in preparation for the creation of a baby.

So, cancer then, is a normal growth of tissue (a placenta), the result of the development of a basic germ cell in the wrong place (outside of the uterus). Sometimes this placenta also has a “baby” or begins a tumor inside of it much like a normal pregnancy — the problem being, it’s in the wrong place. Interestingly, in dissecting tumors, pathologists often find partially formed teeth, toenails and other types of tissue, such as lung tissue, inside the tumors.

To repeat, malignancy is never normal body (somatic) tissue gone into overdrive, but a normal primitive germ cell growing normally in the wrong place. And it’s the job of pancreatic enzymes to digest these cells the moment they begin to multiply.


So what happened to Beard’s theory?

Beard’s announcement was promptly rejected by his peers. Still by 1911, when he published his only book The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer and Its Scientific Basis, his ideas were generating considerable attention. There were forty clinics in London, England curing cancer using crude pancreatic enzymes and he was even cited in the Encyclopedia Britannica.

Beyond laboratory work, Beard based his claims on several cases of apparent remission using pancreatic enzyme treatments. Unfortunately, other physicians had “countless failures.” Beard believed the commercially available enzymes were of inconsistent quality, and that inadequate doses had often been administered to patients. Lacking reproducible results, interest in his theory fell away.

Added to this, Madame Curie appeared on the scene to convince people that the “safe,” “effective” X-ray was the way to go, and the pancreatic cancer cure slipped into oblivion for several decades.

Beard’s concepts were picked up by Dr. Kelley in the 1960s and they are, at present, alive and well in the gentle care of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez who has a very successful practice in nutritional Metabolic Therapy in NYC.



A point of interest: Another Beard, Howard H. Beard, ScD; PhD (no relative), devised the human chorionic gonadotrophin (HcG) “Anthrone test” to measure female hormone in the urine. Based on the fact that trophoblast cells of pregnancy, like all cancer cells, excrete HcG. (in the early seventies these tests were performed on males and females), if the hormone was found in the urine, you were considered to be either a pregnant female, or a male or female with cancer.
