Cancer development requires genetic changes in several different oncogenes and tumor suppressors. Mutated cells occur with any change in the DNA sequence of a cell. Therefore, mistakes may cause mutations during cell division, or they may be caused by exposure to DNA-damaging agents in the environment. Thus, cancer is a disease of many cellular mutations.

It has been long known in the medical field that proper healing of the body and resistance to infection cannot occur without oxygen.
Oxygen is believed to be required for all the major processes involved in wound healing, including resistance to infection, activation of fibroblasts, collagen deposition, angiogenesis, and epithelization.
Cancer Cells Mutations
The current standard of care for cancer is a very general “one-size-fits-all” therapy.
And the more we learn about cancer the more we realize that all cancers are different and the treatment is becoming less and less realistic. The problem with chemotherapy is that it has no way to directly target cancer cells. Chemotherapy acts by killing any cell that is in the process of dividing.
Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) is a phrase used to describe a number of reactive molecules and free radicals derived from molecular oxygen.
The production of oxygen-based radicals is the bane to all aerobic species.
