Papayas and pineapples are nature's best sources of proteolytic enzymes, which we need to digest food protein
Papayas and pineapples are nature's best sources of proteolytic enzymes, which we need to digest food protein. However, these enzymes have also been shown as beneficial in fighting cancer.
Numerous alternative cancer practitioners have promoted proteolytic enzymes. Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez conducted a pilot study of patients suffering from inoperable adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. He treated 11 people with his diet program that included proteolytic enzymes. The experiment resulted in five people surviving for two years, four surviving for three years, and two still living.
Consequently, a larger scale study currently in Phase 3 is partially funded by the National Cancer Institute.
