There are several theories as to what causes cancer, as you can see in Part 2. But Ty Bollinger has his own theory of what causes cancer and what we can do about it, which has evolved after a decade of research and study.
According to him, the gist of his theory as the prime causes of cancer is “a compromised immune system coupled with the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. In other words, immune failure and hypoxia (lack of oxygen) at the tissue level are the prime causes of cancer.” So, in essence, he combines the Immune System Theory with the Hypoxia Theory, which are both mentioned in Part 2.
There are other causative factors that contribute, such as environmental toxins (which compromise the immune system) and microbes. His thoughts are that microbes and fungus are results of immune system failure and hypoxia, and not causes themselves.
Other doctors and researchers have concluded similarly. For instance, Dr. Saul Pressman’s conclusions about poor diet, lifestyle and mental attitude causing toxic buildup which then causes the immune system to fail. These factors also result in cellular oxygen “starvation”. And this leads to uncontrolled cell replication. And that means tumors.
In other words, normally, the cells of the body function by burning the sugar in oxygen to provide energy. And the waste products of this process are carbon dioxide and water. But, if the oxygen is insufficient in the cells of the body, the burn doesn’t get completed and anaerobic respiration starts. This then forms carbon monoxide and lactic acid, lowering the cellular Ph. Lactic acid can cause the clogging of nerve signal pathways which then causes crystallizing and degeneration.
Ok, that’s enough of that. If you want to get the whole scoop on anaerobic respiration, you’ll need to get the book, which I heartily recommend. But expect to read a lot of scientific stuff that may go over your head, like it sometimes did with me. But with some study, it made a lot of sense. One conclusion I came to is that cancer hates oxygen—so therefore oxygen is a really good thing.
It’s amazing how intricate the body is, and how everything works just so, to keep us healthy. Once that is compromised by various factors, things go haywire, and we get cancer, or some other disease or condition we don’t need or want.
Next post we’ll look at why some people get cancer and not others.
