to prevent mankind, in happy ignorance of what the cycle of life really is, from awaiting some other solution of the problems. In doing this futile thing mankind may watch, and hope, and pray, until the crack of doom; but all in vain. Even if the scientific solution were to dawn upon official research, it could—in this universe, at all events, and as it is constituted—be none other than that offered by Nature! No denial can any longer have the smallest value against the supreme truth, that when properly—that is, scientifically—applied, the pancreatic ferments, trypsin and amylopsin, being the most powerful things in the whole range of organic nature, are efficacious agents against cancer.
At the present time science and scientific research are not things to be made light of, to be scoffed at and jeered at in the market-place, or to be ignored. With the publication of the facts contained in this book, the responsibility is shifted to other shoulders than those of the scientific observer. All I ask is, that these truths of Nature, which she has given as a revelation of boundless and priceless import to a world which was not ready for them—that these shall not be denied, but be received reverently as what they are—true facts of Nature. Cancer is a natural phenomenon, not a disease; although it may bring disease in its train. Its treatment—that of a natural phenomenon—has been committed legally, logically, rationally, and scientifically not to the hands of the scientific observer, who has discovered its origin and nature, but to those, the surgeons, who believe it to be “an incurable disease,” and who confess, publicly even, that they know nothing at all about its origin and nature. It is the business of the scientific observer, not that of the medical man or surgeon, to study and elucidate natural phenomena. Let the truth be acknowledged
