(UtopiaSilver.com) (There are some astonishing things concerning oxygen antioxidants and toxins in the cancer process.) Normally, oxygen helps with normal programmed cell death. That is due to the oxidative damage caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS are chemically reactive molecules containing oxygen. Examples include oxygen ions and peroxides. ROS are formed as a natural byproduct of the normal metabolism of oxygen. Cancer cells revert to a primitive form of respiration which uses glucose instead of oxygen. As a result, they no longer take in oxygen like healthy cells do.
It has been postulated by some that antioxidants interfere with chemo treatments. In the early stages of cancer antioxidants might interfere with ROS-induced programmed cell death, and that might make it more difficult for the chemo to kill off early stage cancer cells because chemo, as well as other cancer treatments, kills the least resistant cancer cells first. However, I do not think that such interference offsets the benefits of antioxidants in an overall anti-cancer protocol – and that is especially true once cancer gets beyond the early stages. Antioxidants scavenge up free radicals which otherwise damage cells and damaged cells are more prone to cancer and other diseases.
Actually, a great many natural things could be viewed as detrimental to chemo, since chemotherapy treatment is essentially making a bet that it might be able to poison out the cancer before it poisons out and kills the patient. It is often a losing bet. Chemo tries to kill cancer by damaging cancer cells. In the process it also damages and kills healthy cells – and it destroys the immune system which is the body’s first line of defense against cancer and other illness. Many of the best natural cancer alternatives try to defeat cancer by making the body healthier and better able to beat and ward off cancer naturally. The best natural alternatives also include the elimination and avoidance of toxins, the true primary cause of cancer.
