This text is directed to the physician, and is meaty, but still a must for anyone researching cancer therapies. The text was sent to me by a friend at Mucos-Pharma, so can't give a price.

The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer and Its Scientific Basis--Being Collected papers dealing with the origin, nature, and scientific treatment of the natural phenomenon known as malignant disease--By John Beard, D.Sc., Chatto & Windus, 1911. This is the classic nucleous of all enzyme therapy praticed today for cancer. Modern practitioners who haven't read this should be ashamed. Remedy, buy the book: Order Code: TECA: $25.
Enzyme Nutrition, The Food Enzyme Concept. Edward Howell. 1985. Abridged. This is the work of one of the most avid and rigorous promoters of the importance of enzymes for life. At least 80% of our mass is enzymes: the muscles of our body are simply large, mechano-enzymes of the ATPase class, and there is not one physiological operation that takes place without enzymes. Furthermore, we thrive on foods rich in enzymes whereby comes a diminishment of the production load of our own pancreas and other systems. We take these enzymes in en toto to an appreciable extent, which help auto-digest the foods that come with them, but also, they may act immunologically, parenterically...i.e...outside the digestive tract or in the blood stream and lymphatics. Here is what Dr. Howell says in on page xv of this title: "The length of life is inversely proportional to the rate of the exhaustion of the enzyme potential of an organism. The Increased use of food enzymes promotes a decreased rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential." He calls this the Enzyme Nutrition Axiom. A great book. Better yet is the unabridged one, if you can find it.
