but which hitherto has usually been ignored, in attempting to remove by ferments an “inoperable,” usually recurrent. cancer of two years’ or more standing, or in a laboratory vainly trying, aided by weak, or even inert, ferments, to cure a mouse of a tumour “about as big as itself.” The processes employed by Nature in destroying asexual generation (trophoblast) are probably, like so many of her methods, self-regulating, and in view of this one might not be so sanguine of imitating her successfully, had not undoubted success been obtained.
More than once official cancer researchers have publicly described the pancreatic ferments, usually through other spokesmen, as devoid of action upon living cancer-cells, but in not one of the three “ Scientific Reports” of the Imperial Cancer Research Fund are any evidences at all for this untrue assertion to be found. The photographs contained in this book, as well as the evidences concerning the liquefaction of cancer, amply refute this false and erroneous conclusion. Of course, the probability—nay, certainty—is that inert ferment-preparations had been employed in the unpublished experiments relied upon. Such official researchers may be asked to note that I have never urged the use of inert ferments in cancer, and have never supposed that such would have any action upon cancer-cells—or upon any proteid or other substance whatever, for that matter.
Four years ago a medical correspondent, Captain in the Indian Medical Service, wrote from Bushire, making the pertinent remark: “It is a pity that your opponents do not try to meet your ‘facts,’ instead of taking their stand upon their ‘opinions.’” The reply to this was not difficult to find. As Dr. Bainbridge sagely remarks on p. 4 of his “Scientific Report”: “The irresponsible trophoblast does not concern us here.” The reasons
