WHAT IS CANCER?
It is easy to become lost in the quagmire of diagnosing different “diseases”. This is especially evident in all of the “different” cancers, unless one keeps in mind that each “type” of cancer is merely a detailed, technical description of where it originates. It is a diagnosis and provides no other information. Although cancer is cancer, Utopia focuses on treating you, not your diagnosis or “type”. When you heal, the cancer also heals.
So what is cancer? Healthy cells are marked by controlled cellular growth and death. However cancerous cellular growth is wild and uncontrolled proliferation. Cancer is the unrestrained growth of abnormal cells in the body. Cancer develops when the body’s normal control mechanism stops working. Old cells do not die and cells grow out of control, forming new, abnormal cells. The cell changes from aerobic (using oxygen for energy) to anaerobic (using fermentation for energy). Unfortunately, these new mutated cells do not behave in the same manner as healthy cells.
So what do we know about cancer? In the earth’s infancy, there was virtually no oxygen in our atmosphere and life-forms were anaerobic, meaning they did not breathe oxygen. Anaerobic glycolysis, a form of fermentation, uses sugar as a form of energy for cells to thrive and reproduce. In an environment that lacks oxygen, cells must be anaerobic to survive.
Based on the research of Nobel Prize winning German physician and scientist, Otto Warburg, we know that all cancer cells primarily use this primitive method of producing energy from sugar, anaerobic glycolysis. What Warburg also discovered was that cancer cells were low in oxygen due to a change in cellular respiration from using oxygen to using fermentation of sugar. Additionally, Dr. Warburg also discovered that when cells become cancerous, they also increase the sugar receptors twenty-fold. In his own words:
“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.”
Dr. Otto Warburg also discovered that cancer thrives in an acidic environment. From this, he theorized that these low-oxygen and highly-acidic conditions caused cancer.
