Keep in mind that Tony Bell is a chemist and worked with Jim Sheridan, the inventor of Protocel.
Tony got his information about dosage from Sheridan.

It is a murky area, and one of the most fascinating examples has been that of a Pennsylvania chemist, Jim Sheridan, who invented a formula named Entelev that later went under labels such as Cancell and most especially Protocel -- and has long been claimed as either miraculous or wishful thinking.
PHOTOBOOTHb Born in 1912 and educated under scholarship at Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh, Sheridan was described as a "devoutly spiritual" man who -- in his early teens -- "would pray to God that he be able to use his intellect to help mankind," in the words of Tanya Harter Pierce in Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments That Work.
Specifically, Sheridan had prayed that he'd be able to help find a cure for cancer.
Late in high school, it is said, Sheridan began experiencing a series of recurring dreams.
In them he saw a strange chemical formula.
It meant nothing to Jim, but the formula kept repeating.
No one young Sheridan knew could make sense of it.
"However," writes Pierce, "after Sheridan started college, he came face to face with the chemical formula of his recurring dreams.
The article was printed in a huge source book, and Sheridan just happened to have opened the book to that page.
"It was an article related to cancer and known carcinogens."
If that wasn't curious enough, in April of 1931, while demonstrating some concepts of chemistry at a Carnegie-Tech open-house meeting, Sheridan was asked by a student if the color of a yellow liquid in one beaker could be changed to a different color, and the young chemist had answered that it indeed could, with use of an acid.
Sheridan then randomly plucked an acid from a shelf, added it to the beaker -- and to his shock the liquid "turned all the colors of the rainbow in perfectly defined layers"!
Shortly after that, Sheridan was given a project related to what was known as the "Debye-Hückel Theory."
Suffice it to say that this involves the thermodynamics of solutions.
"Once Sheridan started studying the Debye-Hückel Theory," writes Pierce, "he also realized that the chemical formula he had dreamed about in high school, and then had found by accident after starting college, was in fact associated with the Debye-Hückel Theory!
Looking back, it certainly seemed that events were leading Sheridan in a very specific direction."
The final event took place, it seems, on September 6, 1936, when Sheridan had another unusual dream while taking a nap. In the dream, he saw that the layers of the rainbow symbolized respiratory enzymes.
Each color represented one at a different level of cellular energy.
Somehow, to Sheridan, this suggested that understanding a cell's use of energy (the flow its electrical potential) could help explain the cause of a cancer -- and perhaps, more importantly, a cure for the proliferation of such cells.
Amazingly, Sheridan (who also earned a law degree, and was employed as a chemist for Dow Chemical) worked on the formula (often mostly in his spare time) from the 1930s until the 1990s (part of the time under a grant from the Detroit Cancer Institute). The theory: that by slightly lowering the voltage of cells, cancer cells, which are low men on the energy "totem pole" (relying on fermentation instead of oxidation) would succumb to the minor electrical shift while other cells would not. (Protocel, which he soon invented, does this by interfering with what they call adenosine triphosphate.)
When outside experts evaluated what Sheridan was doing and decided it was worthy of human clinical tests, the American Cancer Society stepped in, claiming Sheridan could not prove he owned the idea and halted the program.
Shortly after, Sheridan was fired from the Detroit Institute of Cancer Research.
He was also blocked from having his treatment analyzed in an official way when the NCI refused to execute testing on it over the course of the regular 28-day period and instead wanted it evaluated in the same five-day period that was used for toxic treatments like chemotherapy (which act quicker, but in Sheridan's mind, are not a long-term cure).
It wasn't until 1978 and 1980 that the chemist was able to get the institute to run animal tests, but again the institute would not run the test over the twenty eight days specified and rejected his formula as ineffective. The testing was completed in eight days instead of the twenty-eight he said it required. Was this a deliberate attempt at quashing a potentially revolutionary cure, or just an institutional blind spot and knee-jerk evaluation?
"The important thing to remember is that, although Jim Sheridan's formula was officially suppressed and successfully kept out of mainstream medicine, it did not die," says Pierce -- clearly a proponent.

In 1936 James Sheridan had been working as a biochemist for Dow Chemical. He began experimenting with substances that could manipulate the energies in the body, and when he discovered he could manipulate them, he got serious. By 1947, without Dow's blessings or support, he developed a substance that would cure about 38% of the cancer cases he had tried it on. By 1983, he had something that was approximately 80% effective. He had been at it for 47 years.
James Sheridan and his substance have been pushed around by the FDA, the NCI, and the ACS so much that in 1984 he finally gave up.
