Trophoblast Theory Still Not of Interest to Mainstream “Cancer Researchers”

This is a very interesting take on the origin of cancer cells.

Dr John Beard of the University of Edinburgh in Scotland proposed a cancer theory  in 1902. His Trophoblast theory has never been disproven, or any viable alternative suggested to this day.

Alternative cancer therapies based on his findings are still having success. In March 2004, the Trophoblast theory gained support in the prestigious cancer medical journal, the Cancer Journal. Not all researchers have closed minds apparently.


Cancer = Cells out of Control

  • The trophoblast theory of cancer states that a tumor is the result of fast-growing trophoblast cells that were not “turned off” because of a lack of hormones in the body. Trophoblast cells are sent to damaged sites, and “hold space” for the slower growing, more complicated cells such as liver or kidney cells. When the slower cells have developed, pancreatic secretions are supposed to destroy the trophoblast cells. When these fast growing cells do not die, a tumor develops.
  • The body does not recognize the tumor as a problem since the cells belong to the body. This explains why the immune system does not attack.
  • Trophoblast cells also appear at the uterus wall during pregnancy. They stop growing when the pancreas of the baby forms. If these cells were removed and taken to a laboratory for examination, they would be identified as cancer cells.


Hormone Evidence

Trophoblast cells create CGH (chorionic gonadotrophic hormone) in the blood. It is only found in people who:

  • Have serious injuries
  • Are pregnant
  • Have cancer (you can get a test for cancer that simply looks for this hormone)


The Toxin Link

It seems that every toxin becomes linked to cancer in time. Because they cause constant damage in the body, the trophoblast cells are constantly in damage control mode. The pancreas usually eliminates these fast growing cells, but if it cannot produce the required substance, the cells grow rapidly into a tumour.


The Diet Connection

Our modern diets are almost completely void of the nutrients that our pancreas needs. This is one reason for the burgeoning of diabetes. The necessary nutrients are found in millet, mung beans and in the seeds of fruit like apricot and apple. The loss of nutrients in our diets coincides with a massive increase in our consumption of sugar and refined carbohydrates. These are quickly turned into blood sugar, and put a huge stress on the pancreas to make insulin.

A 2004 study found that breast cancer risk rose with carbohydrate consumption. Those who ate the most carbohydrates had more than twice the risk of breast cancer than those who ate the least amount of carbohydrates. The increased risk of breast cancer was seen both in premenopausal and postmenopausal women.

The rate of cancer dramatically increased shortly after sugar cane was discovered and became popular. Sugar is the ultimate carbohydrate. It is turned into blood sugar faster than any other food and puts a tremendous strain on the pancreas. Diabetics who suffer from deficient pancreas activity are three times more likely to get cancer than other people.

This would explain why some people have used healthy diets to beat cancers.


The Time Factor

Carcinogenic materials often do not cause cancer until years after exposure. This is a mystery for most oncologists. The Trophoblast theory explains that it is the long term damage, and pancreatic deterioration that will lead to tumour formation.  Immune System Connection



A compound that stops the advancement of these trophoblast healing cells is none other than Laetrile, the famous cancer cure of the 1970s. The pharmaceutical companies “lobbied” the FDA to make it illegal. Why could this be? Laetrile is found in foods that the FDA knows are safe. It is used in alternative cancer treatments.
