In this video, we're going to talk about where cancer comes from.

Interestingly, cancer cells come from normal cells. Why?

When the mitochondria of a normal cell become damaged, the cell can become cancerous.

There are certain ancient genes built into our cells that our bodies (and other organisms) have been using for a very long time. Under certain circumstances, a cell can have an adaptation that it uses as a plan-B to help it survive.

The difference between a normal cell and a cancer cell is a cancer cell's metabolism. Cancer cells run on a historic-type metabolism that uses fermentation.

When this change in metabolism happens, then a cancer cell becomes immortal—it no longer has a point where it stops dividing. It continues to divide rapidly and hogs all the fuel. It can also migrate, which is called malignancy. Cancer cells typically migrate to areas of inflammation.

Cancer cells require angiogenesis. This is a condition where the tumor is fed new blood vessels so it can get nutrients and oxygen. Certain types of chemotherapy address angiogenesis using anti-angiogenesis.

The question is, are there natural things that are anti-angiogenic?

Yes, there are! Take a look:

• Wormwood

• Curcumin

• Resveratrol

• Green tea

• Cruciferous vegetables

These things can cause cancer cells to commit suicide while having no adverse effects on normal cells. This is known as selective apoptosis.

Cancer cells need growth factors to grow. Insulin is one of the most abundant growth factors in the body. Insulin is known to trigger cancer growth.

A low-carb diet is the best way to keep insulin down.

IGF-1 is another abundant growth factor. The best way to lower this growth factor is to do fasting. At 24, 48, and 72 hours of fasting, your IGF-1 levels reduce by 43%, 76%, and 82%, respectively.

Fasting also stimulates mitophagy and increases your antioxidant networks.

The top things that cause damage to the mitochondria are:

• Chronic chemical exposure

• Chronic stress

• Inflammation

• UV exposure

• Chronic exposure to glucose

• Poor immune system function
