Description

New Yorker magazine profiles Nicholas Gonzalez, a doctor who prescribes nutritional diets rather than chemotherapy, to fight cancer. Gonzalez did not begin his practice until he had investigated the research of William Donald Kelly, who started the nontoxic approach in the 1960's. While Gonzalez was skeptical of Kelly's therapy in the beginning, he began to see some truth in Kelly's findings and opened up his own office in 1987. 'I had no choice other than to face the fact that he had hundreds of patients with obviously terminal disease who were still alive five, ten and fifteen years later.' Now fifteen years later, critics remain questionable about Gonzalez's philosophy, stating he "lies to cancer patients, steals their money, and kills them." But as he puts out more information and encourages doctors to research his work, some doctors are agreeing that Gonzalez may be on the right tract.
