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.”  author unknown but oft attributed to Mark Twain

Our thesis overview

Seldom do we take such a fundamental view of our body as the adjacent ‘elementome’ cartoon portrays but our research has found links back to this appreciation that bring into question aspects of the mainstream scientific and medical narrative; adopting the above quote challenges our ingrained health and science beliefs which has proven to be a helpful strategy in arriving at a definable appreciation of cancer despite its complexity.  For example, a fundamental view is that our body needs somewhere between 17-24 elements to live (what are referred to as “essential elements”), yet the average body assimilates upwards of 60 of them.  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.


The sources of required elements /molecules in our bodies are the foundation for each and every molecule/compound that drives each of the biochemical reactions in our body.



Things about cancer you rarely (or perhaps never) consider, let alone hear about

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 altering 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 is a dynamic matrix that is implicated in 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’; cancer is an increasingly predictable cellular consequence to a dynamic environmental insult!

Mainstream cancer research largely brushes 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.

Closing Thanks

The thrust of this website centers on first determining the make-up, and then as applicable, tending to a compromised cellular environment. A work in progress,  this website presents a view of cancer with an aim to make it enlightening, and hopeful.  Complementing this effort, we also advance a pH theory envisioned to confront cancer burdens and is 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!
