Many factors contribute to Cancer, but the key catalyst (even the underlying engine) is one of many Viruses, particularly CMV, but also VZV, Epstein Barr as well as other Viruses SV-40, BK, JCV and HPV. Each cancer in our body has one to many viruses associated with it. Some key ones are HPV – Human Papilloma Virus causes Cervical, Anal, Mouth, Throat, Lung, Vaginal and Penile Cancers. Epstein Barr causes Lymphoma, JC Polyoma Virus causes Colon Cancer. Epstein Barr, HPV & CMV have all been associated with Breast Cancer, thus one reason for it’s prevalence. Now down to kids Cancer, Medulloblastoma Neuroblastoma and it’s 99% terminal twin cancer Glioblastoma. For these cancers its mainly CMV (Human Cytomegalovirus), though other viruses like SV-40, JC and BK are also capable and have been found in these tumors.
In resent studies 92% of Medulloblastoma, 99% of Glioblastoma, 100% of Neuroblastoma have CMV in them, as do a high prevalence in Breast, Colon and other cancers of the body. It is only very recently that we have had testing effective enough to identify these viruses in tumors as they have been found to reside at times only in stem or progenitor cells. 40% of kids catch CMV, 70-90% of Adults. JC, BK, HPV, VZV & Epstein Barr are also found in tumors of the Brain and rest of body. These viruses spread through bodily fluids including semen, saliva, blood, or even in the womb. CMV is the leading cause of congenital birth defects. Kids get CMV and others in the Herpes group as well as other viruses listed here in school or other community situations just like any other virus or cold. Infection can have no symptoms, a head cold with clear drip, traditional cold or flu symptoms or be deadly to those that already have a compromised immune system like a ticking time bomb. Unlike a “common cold”, these viruses once caught set up a life long infection in the human body. Even though the initial infectious symptoms pass, the virus remains in the body and many human ailments are now caused by their latent and reactivating lifelong presence.
Certain genetic dispositions or defects, immune system compromises (like vitamin D deficiency), environmental contaminants/carcinogens, etc. create micro-environments in the body through chronic inflammation and then Oncogenes are over expressed, anti-oncogenes are genetically damaged or epigenetically reprogrammed creating the opportunities for cancers to grow.
Research has found that these viruses enter the body through bodily fluids and depending on susceptibility of the targeted areas, the particular virus ends up in different part of the body attacking a specific type of cell like Stem Cells, Glio Cells, Progenitor Cells, White Blood Cells, etc or others causing unique ailments per location it resides. This could be through the sinuses, in the mouth, cuts, needles (even from a vaccine) or sexual intercourse. The skin is an amazing barrier against all kinds of germs, but occasionally this barrier is compromised an infection happens.
Another hypothesis of mine is that when kids teeth are transitioning to adult teeth (falling out), kids are more susceptible for the virus to get exposed to the blood supply and nerves, thus have an additional entrance across the blood brain barrier. Or as an older adult, a broken tooth, root canal, horrible tooth ache that is a virus attacking the nerve and thus entering the body in a dangerous vulnerability. The virus that one day could turn into Breast, Cervix, Lymphoma, Prostate, Colon cancer, etc. depending on where the virus ends up, instead may end up in traveling along a nerves and thus into the fast evolving, fast growing brain and you have Gliomas, Medulloblastoma, or other brain cancers.
These viruses invade Stem cells, Glio, Astrocytes and/or Progenitor cells and then they do what they have evolved to do, creating more cells, in this case their focus on viral proliferation sometimes enabled cancer to grow as well.
Did you know that cancer tumors excrete a substance that attracts nearby blood vessels into the tumor to feed it (called angiogenesis) ?
Did you know that the tumor cells once invaded by these viruses change their outside appearance so your immune system can’t recognize them anymore?
They now have been programmed to migrate more aggressively?
That the switches that normally kill cells after so many replications is turned off (Apoptosis)?
That the switch to make them grow faster is turned on?
This isn’t random, this is an attack on our bodies by a very well equipped assassin called the Virus. It does not intentionally harm us, it does not have a brain, it just has evolved to survive and proliferate over time, and it’s very patient in a way and exceptional at growing. Viruses understand our cells better than we do. It embeddes itself somewhere in the human body asleep (latent) and awaits certain micro-environment changes that will be favorable to it growing. When enough of those factors are met, it awakens. Maintaining that micro-environment in our bodies allows it to flourish.
Do you know when researchers infect healthy cells with CMV, they immediately take on the exact traits I just described? Cancers traits! All of the “Hallmarks of Cancer”. Immediately no longer die, immediately start changing their shape as Medulloblastoma and other cancers look like so our T & B immunity cells no longer recognize them or attack them as a threat.
I’m still waiting for anyone to have a more plausible fact based explanation or even similar cause/effect and it doesn’t matter who I ask, no one can show a direct path of cancer than when tracing the life of one of these viruses in our body.
When a virus invades a cell it causes it to get irritated. We call that “inflammation”. This chronic inflammation could turn into autoimmune issues like rheumatoid arthritis (since our immune system can’t find the real enemy – Virues, it instead attacks our healthy body leading to these autoimmune diseases), or long term damage issues contributing to stroke, or the right micro-environment and overexpression of oncogenes and under-expression of anti-oncogenes and a cancer tumor grows. Chronic Inflammation is a key sign/contributor to these issues I just mentioned and many other minor and major ailments. These viruses like cancer cause over expression or under expression of enzymes or chromosome/gene flips and this includes creating chronic inflammation (usually by generating the enzyme Cox-2) as a result of the virus presence in the body and a way to weaken the bodies micro-environment and defenses to give the virus a better chance with it’s growth. In a way, chronic inflammation damages tissue. Damaged tissue goes acidic due to the damage and lack of oxygen. Thus you can think that both these viruses and cancer are fertilizing the local soil (tissue) around them so they can grow stronger and spread. Cancer causes the micro-environment to change, lower oxygen, increase glucose and it grows into this tissue.
Again, the virus is patient in a way, time doesn’t matter, just the right micro-environment to wake up and flourish matters to it. Chronic “ongoing” inflammation from the virus in your body builds along with other key reprogramming the virus does to your affected cells or we inflict by ourselves through diet, environment, genetic disposition, etc.
Chemo and Radiation is just poison tailored to kill everything that grows fast, it’s only tailoring is choosing what fast general poison seems to do a better job of killing the specific cancer version then killing the rest of our bodies.
Doctors are not going after the root cause of cancer yet (and it’s a tragedy). Chemotherapy is the “Burn the fields down” solution, others are “change the oil methods” like stem cell therapy others are try to “Close it’s Highway” blocking a specific pathway it uses to replicates or block it’s genetic key triggers (getting better). Unfortunately cancer researchers aren’t killing the cancer stem cells or reprogramming the affected general cancer cells, nor going after the root cause virus first, or at least beating it into latency, then burn the fields hoping to kill the cells it invaded/programmed so it doesn’t go active again.
These virus reprogrammed stem cells, can go latent during the burn down the fields treatments with chemo and radiation. When this happens, just one cancer programmed stem cell or progenitor cell may float away, they are often quite resilient to traditional chemo and radiation. Once the treatment ends, these cancer stem cells find the original micro-environment or another one where they can successfully flourish and you have metastasis or a reoccurrence. Rinse, and repeat until the person can’t take it anymore!
Despite tons of evidence that Viruses are the true key contributor to most if not all cancers, doctors / researchers aren’t certain and thus they are not treating the source, holding to current protocols, causing considerable secondary lifetime damage that greatly affects the patients life and contributes highly as additional contributors to an early death.
I am now beginning to research and further discover that the treatment itself for cancer is contributing to the accelerated demise of the patient. Chemo and Radiation causing long term cellular damage and depressed immune system. Years of chronic antibiotic prescriptions to protect from bacterial infections do nothing for viruses. The cellular damage, lack of immune system, lack of bacterial presence weakening the immune system, contributing to malnutrition all give openings for the viruses to spread further in the body contributing if not primarily causing many of the secondary effects of cancer patients after treatment including stroke, heart attacks, liver and other GI organ failures, hearing loss, etc.
In the future, I hope that the medical community learns to kill the virus first at diagnosis or prior via vaccines and with Anti-virals or at minimum, put it into a latent non-spreading/programming weakened state. We then need to put in anti-inflammitories (ASA, Curcumin, Cannabinoids), reduce sugar, etc to reestablish a healthy body / hostile environment for cancer health, then until we create better medicines/procedures that directly identify cancer cells and kill them like immunotherapy, then we must rely on today’s methods with surgery, chemo and radiation. Then we need to be educated to keep with proper diets, (reduce sugar, take anti-inflammatories for life, not just during active treatment) and maintain an unhealthy environment for the virus to keep it latent, so it won’t wake back up again and renew the cycle.
I appreciate your time and consideration to read this research. I would value any additional insight into these findings and also welcome fact based alternative or additional ideas.
