What is Cancer?

When cells lose 40-60% of their mitochondrial function, they must resort to the process of fermentation (fermenting glucose) in order to produce energy or they will die.  Mitochondria are the organelles within cells that are designed to make energy from glucose and oxygen.


This is called, “oxidative phosphorylation” and it is very efficient since one glucose molecule can produce 38 ATP (energy molecules). This high-efficiency process occurs because the energy in the oxygen molecule is combined with the energy in the glucose molecule.

Fermentation is a very archaic method that cells use (especially many microorganisms) to make energy and because oxygen is not involved in this process even in the presence of it, one glucose molecule can only produce 2 ATP.


The discovery that cancer metabolizes anaerobically (in the absence of oxygen) earned Otto Warburg the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1931. When a cell is deprived of 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours, it will likely become cancerous.


Once the cell must rely on glucose fermentation to produce energy, this signals the DNA to turn on certain genes and turn off certain genes in order to accommodate this new metabolic requirement.  The genes that are turned on are called oncogenes.


Oncogenes, therefore are not the cause but rather are the mechanism whereby the cell adapts to this new situation where oxygen cannot be used to make energy from glucose. Oncogenes are genes that previously were not expressed because they were not necessary but are now being expressed because they are necessary.


No matter where in the body these fermenting cells are located, they are all the same. The only differences between any cancer is where it begins (location) and the cell type.


Types of cancer usually refers to whether it is a sarcoma or a carcinoma because the embryonic origins of those two types of cancer are different.

However, the same process is happening. There is no other difference.


Cells that are chronically fermenting glucose for energy are what are known as cancer cells.

Cancer = Cells that ferment glucose for energy


Genes are turned on and off in order to accommodate the needs of the cell and those needs of the cell are determined by the environment in which the cell lives. That environment is the extracellular fluid that surrounds the cell. It is the fluid in which the cells live and swim.  


For example, if the extracellular fluid has too much glucose, the genes that produce insulin receptors are changed so that the cell becomes insulin resistant because the wisdom of the body knows that too much glucose will kill the cells. Insulin resistance, therefore, is an example of how the DNA of the cells is signaled by the membrane (skin) of the cell to change and to adapt and this is called homeostasis.


In Summary


Cancer is simply a cell that has lost its’ ability to produce energy normally. It cannot use oxygen and must ferment glucose to stay alive even in the presence of oxygen. This chronically fermenting cell adapts its genetic expression and activities to accommodate this new metabolic requirement and that is cancer!


So, what are the causes of cell losing its ability to produce energy normally in the first place and turning into cancer cell?

Remember when 40-60% of the mitochondria are inactivated or damaged that is when fermentation becomes a necessity (cancer), and what contributes to the damage of the mitochondria can be any or all of these following such as toxin accumulation from food, air, water, lifestyle habits, poor sleeping pattern, ineffective toxins removal, constipation, stressed, hormonal issues, too much exposure to EMF (Electromagnetic field), physical environments are all contributors to cancer.
