Cancer Tumor Angiogenesis and Blood Vessels: Understanding How Tumors SpreadCancer stem cells or tumor-instating cells are responsible for the formation of tumors. These cancer cells have the ability to quickly reshape, destroy or fuse with existing blood vessels, giving them access to more nutrients and oxygen. Unfortunately, this also leads to the spread of tumors to other parts of the body through the bloodstream.Tumors release protein factors that stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, a process called tumor angiogenesis. It's important to note that this is different from angiogenesis, which is the growth of blood vessels during the healing process. By understanding how tumor angiogenesis works, we can develop new medical techniques to fight cancer and prevent its spread to other parts of the body. ... See MoreSee Less
The hypoxia is due to the following mechanism: a decrease in breathable oxygen, reduced or cardiopulmonary failure. The lungs are unable to transfer oxygen from the alveoli to the blood efficiently. If blood oxygen levels are too low, your body may not work correctly. Diseases of the blood, heart, circulation, and lungs may be the most common causes of hypoxia. ... See MoreSee Less
The sympathetic nervous system is the part of the autonomic nervous system that controls the body's fight-or-flight response. It is responsible for the body's survival instincts, preparing it to deal with danger. The sympathetic nervous system triggers the release of adrenaline and other stress hormones, which increase heart rate, breathing, and blood sugar levels. These changes give the body extra energy and strength to deal with a stressful situation. ... See MoreSee Less

The CC Treatment's Bioavailable Minerals are ammonia molecules bonded to a single molecule of ionic zinc and […]
When cancer is suspected, there may be different tests and evaluations that need to be performed in order to determine the cancer type and stage. These include blood work, chest X-ray, CT scan of the chest and abdomen, bone marrow biopsy, sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy with biopsy if cancer cells are seen on the surface, PET […]
