What is Carcinogenesis and Cell Transformation in Cancer

We all have non normal cells, this is well known in the scientific world, but not quite understood by the general public. The Cell Cycle has been intensively studied to help in determining the cause of cancer. This has actually been going on for centuries, from Otto Warburg in the 1920’s to a recent publication in 2014 with the new definition of Carcinogenesis, almost 100 years later. So now what?

The Nutrient Interrelationships of Minerals – Vitamins – Endocrines and Health

Originally published in Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine Vol. 5, No. 1, 1990

BY DAVID L. WATTS, D.C., PH.D., F.A.C.E.P.1

Nutritional therapeutics has largely been directed toward the recognition and correction of nutritional deficiencies. It is now becoming evident that a loss of homeostatic equilibrium between the nutrients can also have an adverse effect upon health. A loss of this vital balance, particularly between the trace elements, can lead to subclinical deficiencies.

Nutrient interrelationships are complex, especially among the trace elements. A mineral cannot be affected without affecting Continue reading

The Future of Cancer Treatments A New Paradigm

For more than a century, cancers have been classified by the organ or tissue where they begin – the breast, lungs, bone marrow, digestive system, and so on – and therapies have been geared to those specific areas. Fortunately, as we’ve learned more about the basic biological processes at work in cancer, a new perspective has emerged. Continue reading

What is Oxidative Stress and Free Radical Damage

Oxidation is the cause of Free Radicals, this happens when an electron is knocked out of a chemical bond. These highly reactive Free Radicals will interact with and damage healthy molecules. Oxidative Stress occurs when destructive power of Free Radicals spread from one cell to surrounding cells inflicting widespread damage. Continue reading

Understanding The CC Formula – Combining Chemistry – Cell Biology – Natural Science

The Krebs cycle, also known as the citric acid cycle or the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA cycle), describes the metabolic pathways of the higher-order plants and animals in which available fuels, oxygen, water, and other essentials to life are utilized in an aerobic mode. The metabolic system is a well-documented and familiar process involving the basic steps to produce a “higher” form of life. The protection provided by at least 32 steps in the process provides a system that protects the oxygen-driven plants and animals. Continue reading
