Astonishing Announcement By Medical Scientists: They Discovered The Main Cause Of Cancer

February 15, 2018 12:47

In January 2018, internet users were astonished to read the news stating that medical scientists have finally revealed the main cause of oncological diseases. We found a reliable source of this information and are ready to share it with our readers.

A large-scale study by scientists from the University of Dundee, the University of Hariot Watt, and the Curie Institute in France was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The research suggests that the aging immune system plays a much more important role in the occurrence of cancer than scientists previously thought. The press release about this stunning news was published on the website of MedicalXPress.

As it is known, the likelihood of developing malignant tumors greatly increases with age. Previously, experts explained this by the fact that over time, various defects accumulate in the DNA. These defects can lead to cell degeneration. It was also believed that at least 5-6 mutations are needed to develop cancer.

Researchers at the University of Dundee analyzed more than two million cases of oncology in people aged 18-70 years. They managed to derive an equation that makes it possible to calculate the influence of a decrease in the activity of the immune system on the formation of tumors. The scientists further compared the theoretical calculations with the statistics of malignant neoplasms.

The ''immune'' model turned out to predict the probability of oncological diseases more effectively than the multiple mutation theory.

According to the authors of the study, the aging immune system causes dysfunction of the thymus (otherwise known as the thymus gland). Every 16 years, the size of this body reduces. This, in turn, leads to a decrease in the production of lymphocytes, which recognize and destroy cancer cells.

According to scientists, it is the stimulation of thymus activity that can serve as an effective way of preventing cancer. However, experts warn that excessive stimulation of the thymus can lead to depletion of the organ, which, in turn, is destructive to the immune system.

However, there are other methods too that can influence the thymus, for example:

  • sauna;
  • light tapping in the area of the thymus projection;
  • special exercises.

If this information is confirmed by further research, it will be possible to develop new methods for the treatment of cancer.
