Welcome (updated 21 Jul 2016 – concluding para)
A unifying description of the root cause of cancer ensues. You are reading it here as a result of encouragement by cancer patients, friends and family. Flemming Rasmussen – Mar 2014
“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” Mark Twain
Our thesis overview
Seldom do we think in such a basic view of our body as the adjacent ‘elementome’ cartoon portrays but our research has found links back to this appreciation that bring into question much of the mainstream scientific and medical narrative; adopting the mantra of the above Mark Twain quote to challenge the health and science beliefs ingrained in us has proven to be a helpful strategy in arriving at a definable appreciation of cancer despite its complexity. The body is reported to need somewhere between 17-24 of these elements from the periodic table to live (what are referred to as “essential elements”), yet the average body assimilates upwards of 60 elements. No matter what part of cancer is being discussed, nor whether from a lay person or the most respected cancer researcher perspective, the mentioned proteins, genes, lipid/fats, blood, etc can all be described and written in chemical terms as being composed of a defined group of elements; the impact of having surpluses or deficiencies of elements in our bodies is proving to be an extremely fruitful area of study on our cancer quest. It should be in yours too.
One common denominator present in every single cancer (neonatal to geriatric, and all types) is the intimate relationship between our inherited genes with our personally unique cellular microenvironments. It is imperative to appreciate the role of lifestyle and diet on our genes. In the poster above, the picture of the fish1 illustrates that a resulting phenotype is profoundly influenced by both the genes (expected) and the cytosol (oft ignored); earlier surrogate mother studies vividly show the same influences. This analogy’s foundation boils down to different gene expressions, differences entirely due to the surrounding and nurturing environment, over a lifetime from conception to adulthood. Part of each cell division, the cytosol’s composition gradually transforms over our lifetime (from conception’s maternal influences through to an adult’s insidious dietary surpluses and deficiencies, coupled with exposures through other means); the cytosol can be viewed as a dynamic matrix that causes ALL of our genes’ expression at any height of wellness or depth of disease.
This is the dance; it is a dance that can’t occur without both the genes and the cytosol ‘communicating’ in some manner and doing the best they can to survive; cancer is an increasingly predictable cellular consequence to a dynamic environmental insult!
Essentially all of the mainstream cancer research has seemingly been unaware or brushed over this critical aspect of a cell’s health and has rather opted to focus on singular contributing but subordinate roles and downstream effects of observed changes in pH, degraded mitochondria functioning, or our genome and its unwanted genetic expression.
The thrust of this website centers on first determining the make-up, and then as applicable, tending to a compromised cellular environment. Accordingly, our expectation is that within this website you will find our understanding of cancer not only interesting, but enlightening, hopeful and meaningful. We also are advancing a pH theory eluded to in the side-page comments; more on this soon, but the focus on the points above is the step that will be one of your most important to take. Thank you!
