What Causes Cancer At the Cellular Level
So far we have only talked about what causes cancer at the systemic
level. So what causes an individual cell to become cancerous? Many cancer
cells form by a prior cancer cell dividing and creating two cancer cells.
But how does a normal cell, which is not cancerous, become cancerous?
In a normal cell, molecules called ATP (adenosine triphosphate) provide
the energy of the cell. ATP molecules are created inside the mitochondria
which are inside of every human cell. In fact, there are thousands of
mitochondria inside of every human cell.
The normal process of creating ATP molecules is this (this is highly
1) Glucose gets inside of the cell from the bloodstream,
2) Some of the glucose is converted into pyruvate [this is about a 10
3) Pyruvate gets inside of the mitochondria (there are thousands of
mitochondria inside of every cell),
4) Once inside the mitochondria, pyruvate is at the beginning of two
sequential chemical reactions (the Citric Acid Cycle and then the
Electron Transport Chain which spins-off about half-way through the
Citric Acid Cycle). It is these two cycles which create most of the ATP
molecules in the cell.
Cancer cells consume 15 times more glucose than a normal cell. Thus, a
person would logically expect a cancer cell to create 15 times more ATP
molecules than a normal cell.
But in reality, cancer cells create virtually zero ATP molecules!! Cancer
cells are ATP molecule starved and they have to revert to fermentation to
create what little ATP molecules they create.
With so much glucose there should be an abundance of ATP molecules!! Why
do cancer cells consume 15 times more glucose and yet not be able to
create any ATP molecules in the normal way?
The thing that blocks the production of ATP molecules is a very special
pleomorphic bacteria, which the Independent Cancer Research Foundation,
and others, believe is Helicobacter Pylori or H. pylori. In fact the
evidence is fairly conclusive that it is H. pylori, but I won't get into
While everyone has H. pylori bacteria in their body (generally in their
digestive tract), how does H. pylori get inside of a healthy cell?
Generally it doesn't. But in some cases an acidic diet can make this
bacteria highly aggressive and it can literally drill itself inside of a
normal cell to get away from the acidity in the blood.
Another way is asbestos that can cut the cell membrane. And so on. But
remember that even though all of us have cancer cells, don't forget we
also have an immune system.
