BOOKS BY DR. GONZALEZ:
Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez wrote several books. The first book, The Trophoblast and the Origins of Cancer, discusses the work of Dr. John Beard, who first suggested 100 years ago that pancreatic enzymes have an anti-cancer effect. The second book, One Man Alone, presents the results of Dr. Gonzalez’s five-year investigation of the alternative cancer practitioner Dr. William Donald Kelley completed under the direction of Dr. Good. The third book, What Went Wrong: The Truth Behind the Clinical Trial of the Enzyme Treatment of Cancer documents Dr. Gonzalez’s battle to have The Gonzalez Protocol® properly tested in an NCI clinical study.
Dr. Gonzalez was writing a series of cancer case reports when he died. His wife, Mary Beth, posthumously published his 120 cases: Conquering Cancer Volume One and Volume Two.
