Health Tips & Info :Collagen Dissolving in Cancer.

All forms of cancer spread with the help of the tissue-dissolving mechanism. This illustration shows an example of the development of liver cancer. The liver is the body’s central metabolic organ, and it is responsible for neutralizing and removing toxins from the body. 

The toxins entering the body from the diet, such as pesticides and preservatives, are the most common cause of liver cancer. Also, all pharmaceutical drugs have to be detoxified in the liver. In this context, in January 1996, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) issued a warning that all cholesterol-lowering medications (statins) used on the market at that time were carcinogenic (cancer causing).

 Liver cells that are exposed to these poisonous substances can either be destroyed or permanently damaged. This damage often involves an error in the genetic program of the cells (cell’s software), similar to what we have seen in virus infections. This damage can trigger two processes that facilitate the development of cancer:

1. Uncontrolled cell multiplication. The software of a cancer cell is reprogrammed in such a way that it causes constant reproduction and multiplication of the cell. This uncontrolled cellular multiplication is the first precondition for cancer to develop.

2. Mass production of collagen-digesting enzymes. The second precondition is the production of enzymes that
destroy the surrounding connective tissue that would otherwise keep the cancer cells confined.

Research has established that the more enzymes a cancer cell produces, the more aggressively the cancer develops. The faster the cancer can spread through a body, the shorter the life expectancy of the patient if the mechanism is not stopped.
