Toxic Reaction:  Cancer, the Metabolic Parasite:

Malnutrition is a common development in cancer patients. In fact, malnutrition has been recognized as an important component of adverse outcomes, including increased morbidity and mortality and decreased quality of life. Starvation – malnutrition -- is the natural progression of cancer… the body

simply wastes until death occurs. It has been shown that 80% of patients with upper gastrointestinal cancer and 60% of patients with lung cancer have already experienced significant weight loss before cancer diagnosis.  The dire fact is that 60% of all cancer death is from starvation!


How Does Starvation Occur?

Cancerous cells dump a metabolic poison called lactic acid (or lactate) into the body. However, lactic acid is not a foreign substance to the body. Red blood cell production, heart activity, and muscular activity in general are just a few of the metabolic processes that produce lactic acid as its metabolic waste. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is what the body produces to recycle lactic acid back into energy: glucose.

The body can normally produce enough ATP to maintain the constant recycling process. What the body cannot endure is the enormous amount of metabolic poison. that cancer puts on the system.

Here, lies the great importance of

ATP. Starvation occurs when the body cannot make enough ATP to recycle the cancer poison. After only 24 hours of not eating properly, the body is nearly depleted of its ATP reserves. The body must make more ATP in order for the body to function at all. The body goes into an energy conservation mode, called starvation at this time. Liver and pancreatic enzymes production are significantly lowered to insufficient amounts during this conservation mode. The body then takes the energy it requires for ATP manufacture from itself… it begins to digest its organs and muscles.


Glucose

Most, if not all, people with cancer are told that sugar feeds cancer. And “they,” their friends, books and web sites proceed to explain that sugar is what caused and continues to feed the cancer. Untrue. The simple fact is that sugar is not the cause of cancer. For without sugar ( fructose, glucose, lactose, etc. ), the body could not function. Sugar is, in fact, one of the phytochemicals found in fruits and vegetables. Glucose sugar is the main fuel of the body of which 20% is dedicated to the brain alone, and the remainder is divided throughout the body and nervous system.  ATP or its derivatives, Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP)  and Adenosine Monophosphate (AMP), is the metabolic energy pathway used by the body for internal metabolic energy. Only ATP can convert the poison lactic acid into food -- glucose-- to nourish the body. 
The Body Manufactures ATP
Every living cell in the human body produces ATP. But for cancer-burdened-persons an enormous amount of extra ATP is required to recycle the lactic acid back into usable energy. This major  production of extra ATP is acquired from the digestion of the person’s body itself;

since humans cannot convert ATP from fat, but can convert ATP from body protein. 
  • Symptoms of this starvation process are:
  • Failure to gain weight
  •    Irritability
  •    Lethargy or apathy
  •    Decreased muscle mass
  •    Edema (swelling)
  •    Large belly that protrudes (sticks out)
  •    Diarrhea
  •    Dermatitis
  •    Changes in skin pigment; may lose pigment where the skin has peeled away (desquamated) and the skin may darken where it has been irritated or traumatized
  •    Hair changes -- hair color may change, often lightening or becoming reddish, thin, or brittle
  •    Increased and more severe infections due to damaged immune system
  •    Shock (late stage)
  •    Coma (late stage)

    This condition is generally experienced by starving children and known as “Kwashiorkor.” The clinical term, “cachexia” is used for starvation for persons with cancer, AIDS, or other long term diseases. However, the definition for “kwashiorkor” is far superior in understanding the progression of starvation.

    Who Should be Concerned About ATP Deficiency?

    A person with stage 0 or 1 cancer will not normally have symptoms of ATP deficiency.  However, as the cancer grows the metabolic burden increases until the body cannot produce ATP as fast as the cancer can dump lactic acid into the body. The body attempts to conserve energy and produces below optimal levels of liver

    and pancreatic enzymes resulting in:
    First stage, difficulty in digesting food.
    Second stage, starvation as the body begins to digest its own organs.
    Third stage, which is the end process of starvation, and is known classically as “Kwashiorkor.”

    Sources of ATP

    Every cancer patient needs ATP to stop the poisoning effect.  The best way to get ATP is to look at where the material is found and stored in large amounts.  ATP is found in great abundance in mammal flesh: beef, bison, lamb, and other living creatures.  This consumption of meat will allow the body to convert lactic acid back into glucose with no net harm to the body.

    One needs the ATP from meat for the chemical reactions it is able to produce, meat can be converted into ATP or released from the structure of the cells.  Or one can acquire supplemental ATP known as TumorX ATP: Pure Energy produced by DSMC, by calling: 229-365-7222

    Studies Show ATP Has Proven Beneficial Effects:

    In a study of lung cancer patients there was a stark contrast noticed by patients and caregivers who were given dosages of ATP verses those in the control group who received the placebo. The study demonstrated the many benefits of ATP and its effect on the quality of life for patients with advanced lung cancer. Those who were given ATP significantly improved their quality of life. Patients in the placebo group lost approximately 2.2 pounds per week and an average of 14.3 pounds over a 6-month period of time. Patients in the ATP group showed no weight loss over a 6-month period of time. (In cancer patients, typical weight loss is mainly due to loss of fat and of skeletal muscle mass.) Patients who received no ATP became weaker, more tired, and lethargic during the progression of their cancer, whereas the patients receiving ATP maintained their muscle strength and energy. The study showed that ATP prevents further weight loss and maintains muscle strength of

    both the upper and the lower extremities in cancer patients. The study was significant as it surpassed pharmacological attempts to reverse cancer cachexia (starvation). ATP is the first known agent with beneficial effects on skeletal muscles of cachectic cancer patients.

    Emerging Science Shows ATP Is A Anti-Cancer Natural Compound

    Generation of extra-cellular ATP in blood and its mediated inhibition of host weight loss in tumor-bearing mice. The use of AMP and ATP, when give to mice were shown to inhibit tumor growth and

    increase weight gain in tumor-bearing mice.   Biochemical Pharmacology Volume 38, Issue 23 , 1 December 1989, Pages 4261-4266 .... Click Here to see the study.

    The Argument for Science Continues

    Humans do not get their energy like photosynthetic organisms do.  Photosynthetic organisms utilize radiant energy of sunlight.  Humans are heterotrophic, that is to say, they require carbon compounds (organic) from other plants or animal sources and cannot synthesize the carbon compounds.  Humans are not autotrophic (an organism that makes its own food, and does not require previously-formed organic materials from the environment - for example, organisms that synthesize all their organic molecules from inorganic materials (carbon dioxide, salts, etc.).  Plants are classified as autotrophs because they use photosynthesis to make their own energy.  Plants may be photo-autotrophs (light) or chemo-autotrophs (chemical), depending upon the source of their energy). 

    Now that food has been viewed as an energy source, one can see how important it is to eat the best types of food that contain what the body needs in order for the body to heal itself easily and efficiently.  In order to efficiently fight cancer one needs to eat foods which promote less chemical reactions, so that the body uses less energy to perform difficult tasks that the body requires. 
    Enzymes, minerals, fruits, legumes, nuts, vegetables, meats (fish, chicken, beef) are the foods that contain phytochemicals derived from plants and glandular and protein from tissue from animals.  Optimal health, of course should be the goal, omnivores are the healthiest allowing the body to receive all the nutrition needed.

    Free Energy

    A description of the physicochemical basis of the function of ATP in the energy cycle of the cell requires considerations of

    some principles of equilibrium and thermodynamics as applied to chemical reactions.

    First Law Of Thermodynamics

    The first law of thermodynamics is the principle of energy conservation:  in any process the total energy of the system plus surroundings remains constant. Although energy is neither

    created nor destroyed during a given process, it may undergo transformation from one state to another, that is to say, chemical energy may be transformed.

    Second Law Of Thermodynamics

    The second law of thermodynamics states that in all processes the entropy (the amount of disorder in a system) always increases until equilibrium is attained. 

    Living cells are open systems which exchange both matter and energy with their surroundings; they exist in steady states, far from equilibrium.  The body

    needs the free energy which the chemical compounds have available, and needs a catalyst to perform the chemical reactions they make ... energy and exchange of energy, from the energy available in the system, that is to say ATP & Enzymes. 

    ATP is Linked to the Manufacture of DNA in the Human Body

    ATP is a nucleotide (i.e. Phosphate esters of nucleosides).  The metabolic precursors of nucleic acids are mono-esters with phosphate on carbon-5 of the pentose sugar (monosaccharide with five carbon atoms) present in all living cells and serving as an energy source for many metabolic processes, and is required for RiboNucleic Acid (RNA) synthesis, playing a key role in transferring information from DeoxyriboNucleic Acid (DNA) to the protein-forming RNA system of the cell.  Looking into this a little closer, proteins makes up the principal constituents of the protoplasm of all cells, proteins normally of high molecular weight, made up by combinations of several amino acids in peptide linkages.

    Aerobic formation of lactate occurs in only a few normal tissues, in erythrocytes, in skeletal and heart muscles under heavy work loads, and in the eye retina.  The aerobic production of lactate by cancer  

    cells is not merely an in-vitro artifact, but also occurs in-vivo.

    The net effect of aerobic glycolysis on cancer cells’ biology is, in addition to the generation of ATP in the mitochondria from respiration and oxidative phosphorylation, there is a very large formation of ATP in the extra-mitochondria compartment from glycolysis.  It has been concluded that the normal allosteric factors regulating the rate of glycolysis to match the utilization rate of pyruvate by the tri-carboxylic acid cycle, i.e. through the Pasteur effect, are defective or altered in cancer cells. 

    The most important systemic effect of this metabolic imbalance in cancer cells is the utilization of a large amount of blood glucose, and the release of correspondingly large amounts of lactate acid into the blood.

    What Is Happening In The Liver?

    After only one day of not eating properly, liver glycogen (that can change lactate into glucose) is nearly depleted of stored-up ATP.  Blood glucose must be manufactured from other body sources in order to meet the primary needs of the brain red blood cells, etc.  The organs utilize glucose as fuel, but red blood cells degrade glucose back to lactate, which can then be converted back into glucose by the liver with a net loss of ATP. When one is looking at ATP they are in fact looking at the beginning of a cell or the repair of the cell. ATP is needed and lost in every energy conversion (lactate acid to blood glucose) with a net loss of 4 phosphate molecules per each conversion.

    Although some glucose can be formed from the glycerol portion of triacylglycerols, no glucose can be formed from fatty acids by humans.  The major source of blood glucose in the

    individual with cancer must then be body protein, or ingested animal tissue. 

    The lactate so formed is then recycled in the liver to produce blood glucose again by the process of gluconeogenesis, exactly as occurs during heavy muscular work.  The formation of two or more atoms linked to glucose from lactate requires input of six molecules of high-energy phosphate in the liver.  Since cancer cells obtain only two molecules of ATP per molecule of glucose converted into lactate, cancer cells are looked upon as metabolic parasites, dependent on the liver for a substantial part of cancer cell energy.  Large masses of cancer cells are a metabolic drain on the host organism, i.e. the liver;  and in addition to causing other local and systemic effects, large masses of cancer cells drain the body of energy, inhibit the formation of healthy cells, and promote defective cell growth. 

    Enzymes Detect Cancerous Cells

    To hope every cell will be perfect, is just unrealistic: when one considers cacogenic chemicals…. we all come in contact with, external irritants in the environment, deficiencies, excess in our diets, and synthetic foods.     To understand the fullness of this thought one has to understand TumorX Enzyme therapy this will help you understand the function of enzymes in the body, and how they

    systemically destroy cancer and other defective cells.

    Once one understands that enzymes are the quality control system for the cells, then one can see the simplicity of enzyme therapy, but because of the complexity of our bodies, the actions become an enigma to the allopathic field.

    Cancer Distinctive Metabolism 

    Cancer cells have a distinctive type of metabolism.  Cancer cells of nearly all types show an anomaly in the integration of the glycolytic sequence and the tricarboxylic acid cycle.  The rate of oxygen consumption by cancer cells is

    somewhat below the values given by normal cells. 

    cancer cells tend to utilize anywhere from 5 to 10 times as much glucose as normal cells, and convert most of it into lactate acid.
