What is Cancer? What Causes Cancer?
Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth. There are over 100 different types of cancer, and each is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected.
Cancer is ultimately the result of cells that uncontrollably grow and do not die. Normal cells in the body follow an orderly path of growth, division, and death. Programmed cell death is called apoptosis, and when this process breaks down, cancer begins to form.
Unlike regular cells, cancer cells do not experience programmatic death and instead continue to grow and divide. This leads to a mass of abnormal cells that grows out of control.
More dangerous, or malignant, tumors form when two things occur:
1.) A cancerous cell manages to move throughout the
body using the blood or lymph systems, destroying
healthy tissue in a process called invasion;
2.) That cell manages to divide and grow, making new
blood vessels to feed itself in a process called

Cells can experience uncontrolled growth if there are damages or mutations to DNA, and therefore, damage to the genes involved in cell division. Four key types of gene are responsible for the cell division process:
(1)oncogenes tell cells when to divide,
(2)tumor suppressor genes tell cells when not to divide,
(3)suicide genes control apoptosis and tell the cell to kill itself if something goes wrong, and
(4)DNA-repair genes instruct a cell to repair damaged DNA.
Cancer occurs when a cell's gene mutations make the cell unable to correct DNA damage and unable to commit suicide. Similarly, cancer is a result of mutations that inhibit oncogene and tumor suppressor gene function, leading to uncontrollable cell growth.
Genes - the family type Cancer can be the result of a genetic predisposition that is inherited from family members. It is possible to be born with certain genetic mutations or a fault in a gene that makes one statistically more likely to develop cancer later in life.
Carcinogens Carcinogens are a class of substances that are directly responsible for damaging DNA, promoting or aiding cancer. Tobacco, asbestos, arsenic, radiation such as gamma and x-rays, the sun, and compounds in car exhaust fumes are all examples of carcinogens. When our bodies are exposed to carcinogens, free radicals are formed that try to steal electrons from other molecules in the body. Theses free radicals damage cells and affect their ability to function normally.
Other medical factors
As we age, there is an increase in the number of possible cancer-causing mutations in our DNA. This makes age an important risk factor for cancer. Several viruses have also been linked to cancer such as: human papillomavirus (a cause of cervical cancer), hepatitis B and C (causes of liver cancer), and Epstein-Barr virus (a cause of some childhood cancers). Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) - and anything else that suppresses or weakens the immune system - inhibits the body's ability to fight infections and increases the chance of developing cancer.
What are the symptoms of cancer?
Cancer symptoms are quite varied and depend on where the cancer is located, where it has spread, and how big the tumor is. Some cancers can be felt or seen through the skin - a lump on the breast or testicle can be an indicator of cancer in those locations. Skin cancer (melanoma) is often noted by a change in a wart or mole on the skin. Some oral cancers present white patches inside the mouth or white spots on the tongue.
As cancer cells use the body's energy and interfere with normal hormone function, it is possible to present symptoms such as fever, fatigue, excessive sweating, anemia, and unexplained weight loss. However, these symptoms are common in several other maladies as well. For example, coughing and hoarseness can point to lung or throat cancer as well as several other conditions.
Other cancers have symptoms that are less physically apparent. Some brain tumors tend to present symptoms early in the disease as they affect important cognitive functions. Pancreas cancers are usually too small to cause symptoms until they cause pain by pushing against nearby nerves or interfere with liver function to cause a yellowing of the skin and eyes called jaundice. Symptoms also can be created as a tumor grows and pushes against organs and blood vessels. Colon cancers lead to symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, and changes in stool size.
Bladder or prostate cancers cause changes in bladder function such as more frequent or infrequent urination. When cancer spreads, or metastasizes, additional symptoms can present themselves in the newly affected area. Swollen or enlarged lymph nodes are common and likely to be present early. If cancer spreads to the brain, patients may experience vertigo, headaches, or seizures. Spreading to the lungs may cause coughing and shortness of breath. In addition, the liver may become enlarged and cause jaundice and bones can become painful, brittle, and break easily. Symptoms of metastasis ultimately depend on the location to which the cancer has spread.
How is cancer classified?
There are five broad groups that are used to classify cancer.
Carcinomas are characterized by cells that cover internal and external parts of the body such as lung, breast, and colon cancer. Sarcomas are characterized by cells that are located in bone, cartilage, fat, connective tissue, muscle, and other supportive tissues. Lymphomas are cancers that begin in the lymph nodes and immune system tissues. Leukemias are cancers that begin in the bone marrow and often accumulate in the bloodstream.
Adenomas are cancers that arise in the thyroid, the pituitary gland, the adrenal gland, and other glandular tissues. Cancers are often referred to by terms that contain a prefix related to the cell type in which the cancer originated and a suffix such as -sarcoma, -carcinoma, or just -oma.
Common prefixes include:
Adeno- = gland
Chondro- = cartilage
Erythro- = red blood cell
Hemangio- = blood vessels
Hepato- = liver
Lipo- = fat
Lympho- = white blood cell
Melano- = pigment cell
Myelo- = bone marrow
Myo- = muscle
Osteo- = bone Uro- = bladder
Retino- = eye
Neuro- = brain
How is cancer diagnosed and staged?
Early detection of cancer can greatly improve the odds of successful treatment and survival. Physicians use information from symptoms and several other procedures to diagnose cancer. Imaging techniques such as X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, PET scans, and ultrasound scans are used regularly in order to detect where a tumor is located and what organs may be affected by it. Doctors may also conduct an endoscopy, which is a procedure that uses a thin tube with a camera and light at one end, to look for abnormalities inside the body.
Extracting cancer cells and looking at them under a microscope is the only absolute way to diagnose cancer. This procedure is called a biopsy. Other types of molecular diagnostic tests are frequently employed as well. Physicians will analyze your body's sugars, fats, proteins, and DNA at the molecular level. For example, cancerous prostate cells release a higher level of a chemical called PSA (prostate-specific antigen) into the bloodstream that can be detected by a blood test. Molecular diagnostics, biopsies, and imaging techniques are all used together to diagnose cancer.
Discovered by a Canadian Cancer Doctor way back 1929.
Now, Laminine is use not only to HELP fight the Big “C” but also use to HELP fight ALL KINDS of DEADLY and DEGENERATIVE DISEASES discovered by a Canadian doctor John Davidson way back 1929.
All-Natural Laminine is believe to be the only other known source of Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) in adults. Research credits FGF with improving neuron function in your brain, increasing amino acids and peptides in your cells and assigning the proper STEM CELLS to restore your body’s organs back to their original state.
In layman’s term, FGF reprograms adult STEM CELLS and amino acids in your body, which make up your natural repair tools, to travel to the areas that need it the most. Once there, these repair tools have the ability to integrate themselves with that particular body part.
Their mission then becomes to repair and regenerate the cells and tissues in that location, where ever it is in the body.
For short, Laminine will unleash your body’s natural and very own REPAIR and ANTI-AGING mechanisms.
WHAT ARE THE COMBINED BENEFITS of AMINO ACIDS, PEPTIDES and FGF?Dementia/Alzheimer’s and other neurodisorder symptoms; In a 1994 study (2), the pulvinar nuclei of nine patients with histologically confirmed Alzheimer’s disease and twelve young (9‐28 years of age) and age matched controls (without dementia and with non‐Alzheimer’s dementia) were examined using a battery of histopathalogical methods. All patients with Alzheimer’s disease had numerous lesions, while control patients with and without dementia had very few Alzheimer’s lesions. If some of these lesions as well as many impaired organs and lesions within the brain could partially be considered wounds, they may be able to benefit from the rapid healing by carnosine as explained.
A compelling argument has been made to use FGF as a treatment for Huntington’s Disease and other degenerative neural diseases (A23). In 2005, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine conducted a study in which they used FGF2 as a neurogenesis factor, and found that the FGF increased proliferation of the stem cells by 5 times. We believe results could be even better if the right blend of amino acids and peptides were also available to the stem cells as nutrition when the FGF connects with the stem cells. Other studies have focused on the use of FGF for regulation of the Central Nervous System neurogenesis. A 2005 paper (A24) from University of Louisville, reviews what we consider to be Pendura’s view. The review focuses on the emerging view among the medical community that localized and overlapping pathways of growth factors, metalloproteases, neurotransmitters, and hormones regulate different aspects of neurogenesis within the neurogenic niches. They suggest further elucidation of crucial molecular regulators and integration of their signaling cascades should lead to more rational and effective approaches to harness the adult CNS neurogenesis. The story is similar for other neuro disorders
How is cancer treated?
Surgery: Surgery is the oldest known treatment for cancer. If a cancer has not metastasized, it is possible to completely cure a patient by surgically removing the cancer from the body. This is often seen in the removal of the prostate or a breast or testicle. After the disease has spread, however, it is nearly impossible to remove all of the cancer cells.
Radiation: Radiation treatment, also known as radiotherapy, destroys cancer by focusing high-energy rays on the cancer cells. This causes damage to the molecules that make up the cancer cells and leads them to commit suicide.
Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy utilizes chemicals that interfere with the cell division process - damaging proteins or DNA - so that cancer cells will commit suicide. These treatments target any rapidly dividing cells (not necessarily just cancer cells), but normal cells usually can recover from any chemical-induced damage while cancer cells cannot. Chemotherapy is generally used to treat cancer that has spread or metastasized because the medicines travel throughout the entire body.
Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy aims to get the body's immune system to fight the tumor. Local immunotherapy injects a treatment into an affected area, for example, to cause inflammation that causes a tumor to shrink.
Hormone therapy: Several cancers have been linked to some types of hormones, most notably breast and prostate cancer. Hormone therapy is designed to alter hormone production in the body so that cancer cells stop growing or are killed completely. Breast cancer hormone therapies often focus on reducing estrogen levels (a common drug for this is tamoxifen) and prostate cancer hormone therapies often focus on reducing testosterone levels. In addition, some leukemia and lymphoma cases can be treated with the hormone cortisone.
Gene therapy: The goal of gene therapy is to replace damaged genes with ones that work to address a root cause of cancer: damage to DNA. For example, researchers are trying to replace the damaged gene that signals cells to stop dividing (the p53 gene) with a copy of a working gene.
