I have no idea who feeds you all of this crap you spout, but you should stop listening to it, since you lack the critical thinking skills to properly analyze it. I won’t even get into this nonsense about cancer, as other FReepers have already jumped on it with glee, as well they should.
I think at this point, the researchers need to have their research peer reviewed and hopefully someone will fund some research that will duplicate their outcome.
“Think of copyping a picture, then copying that copy and repeating it a few times. Thing get blurry. In a not very different way, thats what happens with cells.”
Cells do NOT do that. In fact the cells copy themselves EXACTLY, when working normally, every time.
Apoptosis prevents this by killing the cell once it knows its under attack. That’s what this therapy does. The cell commits suicide rather than allow it to be used to produce other bad RNA.
This may also be an extremely effective anti-viral therapy.
The idea here is that once the breach occurs, the mitochondria triggers cell death. Some virus’ mutate to prevent the cell’s ‘chemical alarm’ that activates the mitochondria from commiting apoptosis.
There is a similar therapy being tested (so far successfully in mice) against the cold, ebola, hemhorragic fever, and hantavirus. The current issue of Wired magazine has the story.
I just get tired of hearing people make the claim that cancer cures would be buried because there is more profit in treating cancer than curing it. I consider that kind of thinking to be like Medieval superstitions only crazier.
It’s already in human clinical trials, but side effects including liver and nerve damage, may prevent it’s approval in the US.
It is not happening it the wild...happens with people owned animals sometimes, yes. we also know that pets tend to take on the persona of their owners. That Tasmanian devil is an exception. There may have been an environmental cause to his? what I wrote is true about animals and presenting an anomaly does not make it untrue.
Animals get cancer when they get old just as humans do.
It is not just limited to pets and Tasmanian devils.
Now pets are psychic and take on the persona of their owners? Oh so it is MY FAULT my dog got brain cancer!!!
You are really funny.
Delusional. But funny.
Wild animals don't usually get DIAGNOSED with cancer. Because they don't have concerned people to take them into a vet at the first sign of trouble. But they do get and die of cancer - or die because the cancer rendered them unable to fend for themselves.
Anti-technological nutcases also like to point out that people in undeveloped nations don't get (DIAGNOSED) cancer as often. Because when grandpa gets pancreatic cancer in a hut in Guatemala - chances are it never gets diagnosed AS cancer - but he still dies.
They DO get cancer like humans do. That a particular form of cancer is spread by a virus (created by God) doesn’t obviate the FACT that...
a) they are wild animals
b) they get cancer
Thus the inescapable conclusion: Wild animals do get cancer.
So is it pollution that causes cancer, or a spiritual deficiency? Both? Split the difference?
Why does pollution cause cancer in your world?
In the real world pollution causes cancer because it increases the incidents of SOMATIC MUTATIONS.
Thus indicating, along with billions of other points of data, that Cancer is a GENETIC disease.
Be annoyed with yourself - and whoever taught you what you think you know about the mind of God and its applicability to making factual determinations about the natural world. It is well deserved.
No one taught you these things? Good to know that it is not a widespread delusion at least.
Stress CAN and DOES increase incidents of disease - but the disease itself is usually a microbial pathogen - or a somatic mutation causing unregulated cellular division (i.e. cancer).
Despite you delusions about what God does or does not do or want - wild animals DO get cancer - and it is not because their soul is not right with God - or because they live under a great deal of stress - but because over the span of their life they had somatic mutations in some cell lines that made those cells cancerous.
So how does pollution cause cancer in your model?
Does environmental pollutants increase stress? Or do they increase somatic mutations?
If the entire world bought the program and learned how to meditate, there wouldn’t be any cancer? They’re selling multiple CD’s valued at hundreds of dollars at that website.
Do you get a kickback for peddling that?
no I do not and they don’t make much money but it also can be heard right there for free!
