Viral Cancer

Genes are biological chemical software routines that do specific tasks in our bodies. Oncogenes are genes that have been proven to contribute to the development and growth of cancer.  There are approx. 50 distinct Oncogenes known and some that are found often over expressed in Medulloblastoma are MYC , MYCN and TAG. MYC and MYCN alone cause many hallmarks of cancer. When these genes are ran, they accelerate DNA replication, they turn off programmed cell death in two ways, drives new blood vessels to the cell / tumor and more (footnote ***).

Anti-Oncogenes are genes with the ability to police Oncogenes and keep them from going out of control and causing cancer (The most common damaged Medulloblastoma Anti-oncogene is P53 also known as TP53. There are two copies of TP53 and both must be damaged for this gene to be silenced (footnotes * **). When cancer happens, a couple basic things happen:

Ketogenic Diet To Fight Cancer

Oncology Team,

Can the hospital recommend a dietary plan at the hospital for new cancer patients in addition to the current standard of care & clinical protocols since diet is not mentioned as part of most protocols? In this way, you are not deviating from standard protocols, just supporting healthy long term patient education on how to feed the body, not the cancer.Please read this and then consider the current standard care advice / plan of “have patients eat whatever they will eat on the hospital menu” in hospital after brain tumor resection surgery, radiation and beyond” versus the hospital designing, informing and offering a high good fat and low carbohydrate Ketogenic Diet” along with healthy dietary guidance for cancer patients under your care.

targets that can potentially be used not only for the prevention of cancer but also for treatment.  This research report lists common molecular targets that cancer controls to our detriment.  Then it shows you what foods specifically can counteract those targets.
