Most people facing cancer want to know what causes it. Oncologists often don’t discuss cell signal transduction with patients. But the health of the cell and its ability to generate a healthy replacement cell is the key to explain how cancer forms and how to reverse the process.
Pollution, chemicals, poor diet, lack of exercise, and other facets of life stress our bodies even at the cellular level. Stressed cells can undergo small and irreversible structural changes that alter their behaviors.
If changes go uncontested, the cell can become unhealthy and mutate into a cancer cell that will begin to multiply, form a tumor, and spread. Fortunately, research is uncovering information on how to re-regulate unhealthy cells’ behaviors.
