If cancer cells really did live in a low oxygen environment, why would anyone be crazy enough to take an antioxidant?
Or, at the very least, if oxygen is so great, why would anyone even NEED an antioxidant?
And be careful of anaerobic exercises like bodybuilding and strength training, or the cancer cooties might eat you.
K.J. Davies (“Oxidative stress: The paradox of aerobic life,” PubMed, 1995) wrote …
“In recent years oxidative stress has been implicated in a wide variety of degenerative processes, diseases and syndromes, including the following: mutagenesis, cell transformation and cancer; atherosclerosis, arteriosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes and ischaemia/reperfusion injury; chronic inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus and psoriatic arthritis; acute inflammatory problems, such as wound healing; photo-oxidative stresses to the eye, such as cataract; central-nervous-system disorders, such as certain forms of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, certain glutathione peroxidase-linked adolescent seizures, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s dementia; and a wide variety of age-related disorders, perhaps even including factors underlying the aging process itself.”
Nobel laureate Otto Warburg (1883-1970) wrote …
“Just as there are many remote causes of plague – heat, insects, rats – but only one common cause, the plague bacillus, there are a great many remote causes of cancer – tar, rays, arsenic, pressure, urethane – but there is only one common cause into which all other causes of cancer merge, the irreversible injuring of respiration.”
That’s like saying, “The primary cause of asthma is the “injuring of respiration.”
Dr. Warburg’s theory of the replacement of respiration by fermentation (anaerobic glycolysis) is a symptom of cancer, not its cause.
Even Hans Adolf Krebs (1900-1981), Warburg’s biographer and research assistant (and discoverer of the “Krebs cycle”) agreed with the above statement.
The fundamental cause of cancer was assumed to be at the “level” of gene expression.
Cancer’s fundamental cause is still assumed to be at the level of gene expression because there are big bucks to be made in GENE PATENTS.
The fundamental cause of cancer can’t be found in histology – the study of the microscopic structure of tissues.
The fundamental cause of cancer is in cancer’s GROWTH BEHAVIORS.
Some of these growth behaviors were identified by German neuropathologist Hans-Joachim Scherer (1906-1945).
Dr. Scherer called these growth behaviors – independent of histological classification – “secondary structures.”
Thomas Seyfried (Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer, 2012) wrote…
“These structures were predictive of patient progress and were independent of histological classification. These behaviors have since been recognized as ‘Scherer’s structures,’ which can provide targets for assessing effective therapies. Hence, good cancer models should be evaluated more for their in vivo growth behaviors than for their histological classification, which can be ambiguous at best.”
Emanuel Revici, M.D. (1896-1998) author of Research in Physiopathology As Basis of Guided Chemotherapy – With Special Application to Cancer, published in 1961, thoroughly cataloged cancer’s growth behaviors at multiple “levels.”
Cancer manifests at “trickle-up” or trickle-down” intermediate levels involving …

The greatest cancer researcher in history – Dr. Emanuel Revici – doesn’t even rate a Wikipedia page.

To avoid any misunderstanding, Dr. Revici’s 772-page textbook, Research in Physiopathology As Basis of Guided Chemotherapy – With Special Application to Cancer, 1961, has NOTHING whatever to do with the conventional chemotherapy touted by Moronic Monolithic Mechanistic Mainstream Medicine.
Conventional chemotherapy sets up the alkaline inflammatory environment that …
(1) metastasizes the targeted cancer, and
(2) damages the mitochondria to seed the terrain for new cancers.
