CAUSES: Why does a cell turn cancerous?

The more specific questions to ask

”What mechanisms may be putting a cell's aerobic energy production “out of order”?

“What is damaging / mutating DNA to cause altered genetic expression, that allows cancer to proliferate?”

”More genetic research is needed, please give generously. . .”

"Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud and that the major cancer research organizations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them."

- Linus Pauling Ph.D. (Two-time Nobel Prize winner)


Defective genes are wrongly suspected

Genes produce enzymes, which control all cell life functions -  we are led to believe that carcinogens and mutagens or lifestyle and hereditary factors “predispose” us to genetic defects that cause cancer.

The theory is that cancer starts when a defective oncogene (controller gene) combined with the loss of a suppressor gene mysteriously results in unrestrained growth - However, genes are stable molecules that account for the stability of life, so how can we have a raging cancer epidemic, with over 6 million new cases per year?

Cancer mysteries that don't fit the genetic defect theory – There are far too many cancer observations that cannot be answered by the defective gene theory, including growth itself:

✔ Up to 96% of cancer cells have membrane traits

✔ Bone cancer does not result in unrestrained bone growth

✔ There is no cancer of the heart, arteries or veins

Injuries that do not heal cause cancer.

✔ Why aren't people born with cancer? - like the genetic Down's syndrome;

✔ Why can identical twins get different diseases?

✔ Cancer occurs most frequently within liquid storage vessels - such as the stomach, colon, bladder, breast, prostate, etc. ;

Genes do not control growth any more than a steering wheel controls an automobile - the steering wheel does not power the automobile, and genes do not cause cells to divide and multiply.

–   Genes control the direction of growth and maintain the continuity of life - Biology texts state that genes have only two functions:

(1) Store information;

(2) Duplicate information in the form of RNA.

–   All genes are combinations of 2 functionally equal base pairs called AT and CG - There are only 64 possible combinations known as the “Universal Genetic Code”.


–   All gene bases are functionally equal, producing 20 well-known amino acids - None control other genes and none control rate of growth. No known human genetic defects contribute directly to unrestrained or rapid growth.

–   The existence of oncogenes has never been proven - It's just a theory.

The most likely causes

A strongly evidenced theory is that cancer is caused by microbial invasion of cells as a result of weakened cell walls damaged by carcinogens in the body

–   A microbe is able to get inside a healthy cell causing its aerobic mitochondrial energy production to be put “out of order”  i.e. the cell is now a cancer cell.

–   Eminent researchers cite various forms of microbes as the final step in the process of a cell becoming cancerous

–    Researcher Ron Gdanski has shown that it is a microbe inside cancer cells that causes DNA damage

–   Microbes inside cells “Gobble up” glucose

–   Internal tissue damage can allow microbes an in-road - More than 90% of all cancers start in tissue. Conditions or substances that can cause tissue damage include an overly acidic diet, leaky gut syndromeand toxins

–   Some examples of microbial infections involved in cancer - Smoking (causes fungal infections), some parasites, physical injuries that do not heal

–   Cancer industry knows that fungi is involved in cancer - Since about 1927, the mechanism of toxic drugs (E.g. chemotherapy) to cure cancer has been to block ergosterol or otherwise kill fungi. Ergosterol (named from the common grain and corn fungi, Ergot) is a necessary component of fungal cell membranes.

Cancer = Fungally-infected injuries?

Microbial Theory of Cancer

Nutritional deficiencies

–   Magnesium deficiency - will affect the cell “battery”charge and energy production by causing imbalance with calcium and decreasing potential voltage difference across cell membrane;

Hormonal imbalances

Toxins/Pollution/Toxic byproducts

Chronic infections/inflammation

Chronic stress/emotional conflict

Free radical damage

Lack of enzymes involved in aerobic energy production   - “Dead”processed and cooked foods lack enzymes;

Lack of oxygen being supplied to cell mitochondria;

–   A choking sea of acidic toxins excreted by microbes would use up available oxygen - lowering mitochondrial oxygen supply;


–   When a cell becomes anaerobic (i.e. converts to glucose fermentation), a dense layer of protein enzymes coat the outside of the cell wall - which would further inhibit oxygen from getting into the cell; (some cancer therapies involve high doses of pancreatic enzymes to break down this protein coating)


Poor cellular membrane integrity – will affect the cell “battery”charge and energy production by disturbing control of substances passing through membrane.This could be caused by an imbalance of fatty acids composing membrane – Omega-3 fats are commonly deficient in Western diet.

Something else?...

–   Researchers are investigating various mechanisms that may be involved in various stages of cancer development and treatment – including molecular iodine (I2), apoptosis, NIS gene insertion, and DNA methylation.
