In his eye-opening book
What Went Wrong - The Truth Behind the Clinical
Trial of the Enzyme Treatment of Cancer, Dr.
Nicholas J. Gonzalez, M.D., explains how the mainstream medical
system is inherently biased against virtually all alternative
approaches to disease treatment and prevention.
cancer, the clinical trial model has been deliberately designed in
such a way as to promote the perceived failure of unconventional
approaches to cancer treatment, which includes Dr. Gonzalez'
individualized enzyme therapy approach.
Since 1981, Dr. Gonzalez has been devoting his time and livelihood
to investigating nutritional approaches to treating cancer and
various other degenerative diseases.
He was joined by Dr.
Linda Isaacs in 1985, and since that time, the two have
pioneered together the customization of cancer treatments based on
strict dietary protocols that involve eating specific foods,
detoxifying the body, and supplementing with individualized nutrient
panels, including pancreatic enzymes for cancer patients.
It is this pancreatic enzyme protocol that Dr. Gonzalez and Dr.
Isaacs gained approval and funding from the National Cancer
Institute (NCI) to test back in 1998 as part of a large-scale
clinical trial, the so-called gold standard for science-based
The goal of the study,
of course, was to compare the effectiveness of enzyme therapy with

But because the trial involved analyzing a treatment protocol that
was hatched outside the conventional cancer system, it ended up
being intentionally designed to fail by corrupt powers who took
control of it and basically ran it into the ground.

And in the end, the

as though Dr. Gonzalez' enzyme therapy is of no benefit to cancer
One particularly significant flaw in the study's design was the fact
that its participants were chosen randomly. Since enzyme therapy

important that only fully-committed cancer patients are allowed to

over the selection of patients, and how the protocol was
violated in numerous ways that were subsequently confirmed by
regulatory authorities. Yet, a misleading article was published

organizations, government agencies and vested interests is
devoted more to preserving their enormous profits and
reputations than to the prevention and cure of cancer.”
