Oxidizing Cancer Cells To Death
« on: June 30, 2021, 06:17:37 pm »
Cancer cells are particularly prone to oxidative stress because they are more active than normal cells, their mitochondria are often dysfunctional, and tumors possess abnormal vascular networks resulting in unstable oxygen delivery. Most conventional anti-cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation, kill cancer cells by severe oxidative stress by inducing the production of excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS). It turns out, immune cells also utilize severe oxidative stress to kill cancer cells.
Oxidative stress upregulates numerous survival mechanisms of cancer and allows tumors to grow and spread and enables them to resist the effects of treatment and evade immune attack. Oxidative stress is a double-edged sword, however, and cancer cells have their limit. The way to push cancer cells past their limit and induce apoptosis (cell death), is to impair their antioxidant defense system by depleting their stores of glutathione and thioredoxin reductase—cancer’s two main antioxidants that neutralize oxidative stress and prevent irreversible cellular oxidative damage. By depleting these antioxidants, we sensitize cancer to the deadly effects of oxidative stress by exceeding the capacity of its protective antioxidant defense system and push the oxidative insult to the point where, instead of enabling cancer cells to thrive, it now results in their death.
By using the supplements and repurposed medications below, we can kill cancer cells by sensitizing tumors to oxidative stress, inducing cytotoxic levels of oxidative stress, dually inhibiting the glutathione and thioredoxin systems, arresting the cancer cell cycle, and improving the immune response. We also impair glucose, glutamine, and fatty acid metabolism of tumors, as well as protective autophagy, all while keeping the “pill burden” relatively low.
