I love this article from CancerTutor.com. According to Cancer Tutors, when talking about what causes cancer, we need to talk about it at two different levels.
The first level is talking about cancer at the systemic level, meaning what conditions in the body allowed cancer to grow out of control and how do we deal with this issue.
The second level of talking about cancer is talking about what causes cancer at the cellular level. In other words, why does a healthy cell become cancerous?
We can compare these two levels by talking about a flood. We could talk all day long about the damage a rain storm caused, such as the flooding of rivers, the damage to crops caused by heavy rain, the damage to roads that have flooded, etc.But that is only one level to talk about. We could also ask what weather conditions caused rain to form in the clouds. Thus, a scientist might talk about what causes rain up in the clouds, but a newscaster might talk about the damage caused by the flooding of a river caused by the rain.
But that is only one level to talk about. We could also ask what weather conditions caused rain to form in the clouds. Thus, a scientist might talk about what causes rain up in the clouds, but a newscaster might talk about the damage caused by the flooding of a river caused by the rain.
The same is true about cancer. A cancer practitioner might research how to kill cancer cells or revert them into normal cells, but a cancer researcher might ask why the immune system was weak and why individual cells were cancerous.
A discussion about what causes cancer at the cellular level is a totally different subject than talking about what causes cancer at the systemic level.
Fixing the root cause of cancer
While many natural cancer treatments do very well against cancer, what is missing in many natural cancer treatment protocols is getting rid of the microbes in the organs, which is the root cause of most cancer.
In many cases, the immune system can get rid of these microbes, but in fact, some types of tapeworms, flukes, and fungus, etc. cannot be killed by the immune system for one reason or another (e.g. the microbes are not accessible by the immune system).
Liver flushes and special nutrients may be required to deal with these microbes and parasites. But the fact is that many natural cancer treatments do very well without dealing with these special microbes. But the patient should be aware of these issues.
By getting rid of the microbes in the organs, plus doing the normal cancer treatments, the balance (i.e. a strong immune system and a low number of cancer cells) is restored enough to keep cancer from coming back. The patient is cured because their immune system has been fixed and the number of cancer cells (by using special protocols) has been reduced. Cancer will not come back as long as the patient watches their diet.
The approach of orthodox medicine, however, is to severely damage the immune system with chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. This makes the imbalance even worse because these things damage the immune system and do a very poor job of targeting the cancer cells and do an even worse job of killing the microbes in the organs.
Orthodox cancer treatments also kill many healthy cells and can damage organs, the lymph system, etc. Is it any wonder cancer always seems to “come back” after surgery or chemotherapy? This is called “regression.”
For example, how does cutting off a breast going to fix the immune system? Don’t be absurd. I don’t know how many times I have told cancer patients that “you cannot cut cancer out.”
Is it any wonder that alternative cancer treatments, when administered by experts, have a massively higher cure rate than orthodox medicine? Most natural cancer treatments include immune builders and things that kill cancer cells. Some protocols also include things to clean the blood of microbes, which also will supercharge the immune system.
Ponder this carefully: Even when orthodox medicine puts someone into “remission” (i.e. their cancer appears to be gone), they have not fixed the root cause of cancer, so it is almost certain cancer will come back.
Because the root cause of cancer is a weak immune system, you cannot cut cancer out. You have to deal with the root cause of cancer.
Cancer on the systemic level
Everyone has cancer cells in their body, so why does one person never get diagnosed with cancer and another person is diagnosed with cancer? Cancer is almost always caused by the same multi-step sequence of events.
First, nasty microbes and parasites get inside of the organs and make their homes there. These microbes generally come from meat that was not adequately cooked, but they can come from other sources.
Second, these microbes intercept glucose which was headed for the cells in the organs.
Third, these microbes excrete (as waste products) mycotoxins, which are highly acid and totally worthless to the cells.
Fourth, because the cells (in the organs) don’t get the food they need (because it has been intercepted), and because they are living in a sea of filth (i.e. mycotoxins), the cells in the organ become weak.
Fifth, organs are made exclusively of cells. In other words, if you took all of the cells out of an organ, there would be no organ. Thus, because the cells in the organ(s) are weak, the organ(s) are weak.
Sixth, because one or more major organs are weak the immune system becomes weak. Actually, the microbes weaken the immune system both directly and indirectly.
Seventh, because the immune system is weak it cannot kill enough cancer cells and the cancer cells grow out of control.
Thus, in summary, the root cause of cancer is microbes and parasites that are in the organs or colon (or bloodstream), which weakens the immune system.
However, other things can cause cancer. For example, a vaccination can weaken the immune system due to mercury and / or toxins. Filth in the colon can also lead to a weak immune system (see the book: Fire in the Belly by Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby)
The reader might have noted the “or bloodstream” above. Cancer patients who have microbes in the organs also have microbes in the bloodstream. Which caused the other will vary by the cancer patient. But microbes that originate in the organs will spread microbes to the bloodstream, and vice versa. Exactly how much the microbes in the organs weaken the immune system, versus how much the microbes in the bloodstream weaken the immune system varies by case, but parasites likely would be found in the organs.
When thinking about the above steps, there are three major ways to cure cancer:
Safely target and kill the cancer cells;
Kill the microbes inside the cancer cells (which will be discussed below) and the cancer cells will revert into normal cells;
Kill the microbes that are causing the immune system to be weak (and this includes the microbes in the organs and the microbes in the bloodstream).
Actually, without doing No. 3, cancer could come back again.
The reader might wonder if there are any natural cancer treatments that are specifically designed to identify and get rid of the microbes in the organs? The answer is yes.
The definition of cancer cells
So what causes an individual cell to become cancerous? Many cancer cells form by a prior cancer cell dividing and creating two cancer cells. But how does a normal cell, which is not cancerous, become cancerous?
In a normal cell, molecules called ATP (adenosine triphosphate) provide the energy of the cell. ATP molecules are created inside the mitochondria which are inside of every human cell. In fact, there are thousands of mitochondria inside of every human cell.
The very definition of cancer cells is low ATP energy.
The normal process of creating ATP molecules is this (highly simplified):
Glucose gets inside of the cell from the bloodstream;
Some of the glucose is converted into pyruvate (this is a multi-step process);
Pyruvate gets inside of the mitochondria;
Once inside the mitochondria, pyruvate is at the beginning of two sequential chemical reactions (the Citric Acid Cycle or Krebs Cycle and then the Electron Transport Chain which spins off about half-way through the Citric Acid Cycle). It is these two cycles which create most of the ATP molecules in the cell.
Cancer cells consume 15 times more glucose than a normal cell. Thus, a person would logically expect a cancer cell to create 15 times more ATP molecules than a normal cell.
But in reality, cancer cells create a very small number of ATP molecules. Cancer cells are ATP molecule-starved and they have to revert to fermentation to create what little ATP molecules they create.
With so much glucose there should be an abundance of ATP molecules. Why do cancer cells consume 15 times more glucose and yet not be able to create a significant amount of ATP molecules?
The thing that blocks the production of ATP molecules is a very special pleomorphic bacteria that is inside the cancer cells.
The Independent Cancer Research Foundation and others believe the microbe is Helicobacter Pylori or H. pylori. In some cases, Fusobacterium may be involved as well as it is also known to get inside of cells.
While everyone has H. pylori bacteria in their body (generally in their digestive tract), how do H. pylori get inside of a healthy cell? Generally, it doesn’t. But in some cases, an acidic diet can make this bacteria highly aggressive and it can literally drill itself inside of a normal cell to get away from the acidity in the blood, as discovered by Robert O. Young, Ph.D.
Another way microbes can get inside of cells is because asbestos or the chemicals in tobacco cut the cell membrane. This can allow microbes inside the cells. But remember that even though all of us have cancer cells, don’t forget we also have an immune system.
So how does a bacteria block the production of ATP molecules and thus turn a cell cancerous after it has gotten inside the cell?
In 2004, the Independent Cancer Research Foundation developed the model which still stands today.
The bacteria blocks ATP production in two different ways:
First, bacteria eat glucose so as the bacteria proliferate inside the cell (by the way, a bacteria is roughly the same size as mitochondria) they intercept more and more glucose. This means less and less pyruvate is made because there is less glucose to be converted into pyruvate. This means less ATP is made.
Second, microbes excrete mycotoxins, which are highly acidic and totally worthless molecules.
As one ICRF researcher put it: The mitochondria, instead of “swimming” in a sea of pyruvate are swimming in a sea of mycotoxins.
Both items contribute to the mitochondria not obtaining enough pyruvate and this hinders both the Citric Acid Cycle and the Electron Transport Chain and thus blocks the production of an adequate amount of ATP in the mitochondria.
This microbe is highly pleomorphic, meaning it has many different sizes and shapes. This microbe can literally be smaller than a virus. Many people think it is a virus or fungus that causes cancer, but it is actually a cell wall deficient highly pleomorphic bacteria.
The book The Persecution and Trial of Gaston Naessens describes the 16 phases of the cancer microbe.
In one of its smaller states, it is the size of a virus and can enter inside of the cell nucleus. Like a virus, which gets inside of the nucleus, the DNA of the cancer microbe can interact with the DNA inside the cell nucleus and change the DNA structure of the cell.
