My personal vision of the root cause of cancer ensues, the result of encouragement by cancer patients, friends and family. My thoughts are based on four decades of cellular research after appreciating a need for the status quo in cancer research to shift focus dramatically. Flemming Rasmussen – Nov 2013
“The main factor holding us back from overcoming most of metastatic cancer over the next decade may soon no longer be lack of knowledge but our world’s increasing failure to intelligently direct its ‘monetary might’ towards more human-society-benefiting directions.” Nobel laureate James D (Jim) Watson, Open Biology - Oxidants, antioxidants and the current incurability of metastatic cancers, 4 October, 2012
Pause for thought –
For a minute I encourage you to set-aside any feelings you may have surrounding conventional cancer treatments like radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery to ponder on the following. Research into spontaneous/radical remissions of cancer exist because these remissions are real, and their occurrences are increasingly documented. Knowing that such a reversal is possible brings euphoric emotions, failing to identify any consistent mechanism behind them perplexing, and knowing they arise extremely infrequently is sobering.
Reflecting on this phenomenon results in a surreal realization the body heals itself WITHOUT conventional medical interventions despite terminal cancer diagnoses.
Our thesis overview
The dance between our genes and our cellular environment (particularly the cytosol) became an area of immense interest to us about 3 years ago and has resulted in a realization that one common denominator is present in every single cancer (neonatal to geriatric, lung, brain, ovarian, blood, prostate etc), the intimate relationship between inherited genes with an out-of-balance cellular microenvironment.
A huge component of this microenvironment is the cytosol, and its make-up is transformed gradually in a lifetime from conception’s maternal influences through to an adult’s insidious dietary surpluses and deficiencies, coupled with the toxin and/or radiation exposures incurred during work and play. This dynamic matrix is what 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 the genes or the cytosol ‘communicating’ in some manner and doing the best they can to survive given both the physical chemistry available within, and the external conditions imposed on them.
“Many scientists use epithelial cell lines that are exquisitely sensitive. The slightest shift in their microenvironment can alter the results — … Cells in culture are often immortal because they rapidly acquire epigenetic and genetic changes. As such cells divide, any alteration in the media or microenvironment — even if minuscule — can trigger further changes that skew results” Dr Mina Bissell, 20 November 2013 article ‘Reproducibility: The risks of the replication drive’ in the journal Nature
In summary, we see cancer as an increasingly preditable cellular consequence to a dynamic environmental metabolic insult, where an incredibly complex and dynamic interplay of our cells internal and external environments is witnessed in real time by the millions of reactions occurring every second in every cell in our body!
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 of observed changes in pH, degraded mitochondria functioning, or our genome and its unwanted random genetic expression.
Your Destiny and CANCER!
The thrust of this website centers on attending to a compromised cellular environment, As we publish and build on this new foundation of cancer, we’ll show ways that you can directly influence if not totally control the manner your body fights to eliminate cancer or sadly surrenders to terminal cancer!
Our expectation is that within this website you will find our understanding of cancer not only interesting, but enlightening, hopeful and meaningful in your bid to arrest cancer. Thank you!
