The Growth Of Cancer Cells
Cancer cells are cells gone wrong, in other words.
They no longer respond to many of the signals that control cellular growth and death as described in the Krebs Cycle. Cancer cells originate within tissues and, as they grow and divide, they change even further from normalcy.
There comes a time in everyone’s life when you have to say grandma was right.
Some of the ideas 40 years ago just do not seem important, why should they, we have modern medicine and cell phones and that’s all we need. So let’s go back in time and then add some science to Grandma’s thinking.
Free Radicals In The Body
The basic science of oxidative stress and the antioxidant response is not in contention, what is an effective antioxidant is.
When the body breaks food down into energy, it generates a by-product known as free radicals. Also present in food itself, the air we breathe and the sun we worship, free radicals are a broad class of chemicals with the potential to exert significant damage.
There are scientists and researchers running tests aboard the International Space Station in an effort to learn more in cancer biology.
Since its founding fifty years ago in 1958, NASA’s exploration and research missions have benefited people around the world through the expansion of our civilization’s horizons, the acquisition of knowledge, and the development of new technologies and applications that provide amazing new advances in the quality of human life.
Understanding cell death helps understand how dead tumor cells leave your body.
It has been noticed in several studies that a cancer tumor can increase in size during cancer treatments, this is typically due to the inflammation that occurs around the tumor area.
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 1920s to a recent publication in 2014 with the new definition of Carcinogenesis, almost 100 years later. So now what?
