A Simple Test For Malignancy
August 13, 2012 by Bob Livingston
In your book, “The Forbidden Truth About Cancer,” you write on page 32, “Over 50 years ago, a urine test was developed which could easily and effectively determine the presence of malignant tumors. Many doctors in the United States and other countries used them, but they were never universally accepted…” You then list the reasons. My question is this: What is the name of the test so I can ask my doctor to perform it?
The test was developed in the late 1950s by a doctor named Manuel D. Navarro, M.D. The test detects the presence of human chorionic ganadotropin (HCG) in urine. It indicates the presence of cancer cells even before signs or symptoms develop. Dr. Navarro found HCG to be elevated in all types of cancers.
The test is based on a theory proposed by Dr. Howard Beard and other researchers who believed that cancer is related to a misplaced trophoblast cell that becomes malignant in a manner similar to pregnancy in that they both secrete HCG. As a consequence, a measure of the amount of HCG found in the blood or urine is also a measure of the degree of malignancy. The higher the number, the greater is the severity of the cancer. It is called the HCG urinalysis test.
