Oxygen and Cancer - What Warburg Actually Discovered

by Tony Isaacs

(The Best Years in Life) The web and various books and product advertisements continue to be awash in disinformation about what Nobel Laureate Dr. Otto Warburg found about cancer and oxygen. Lack of oxygen is NOT the prime cause of cancer and that is not what Warburg found. Neither did he find that increasing oxygen was a cure for cancer, though at one time he postulated that it might be.

Cancer cells are low in oxygen primarily because they have changed from taking in and utilizing oxygen for respiration to a more primitive form of respiration which utilizes sugar instead of oxygen. It is the cancer process itself which causes most of the lack of oxygen, not the lack of oxygen which causes the cancer process.

Warburg made some groundbreaking discoveries about the mechanisms of cancer, especially as regards respiration and mitochondrial malfunction. Instead of the widely spread disinformation that Warburg discovered that lack of oxygen was the prime cause of cancer and that he discovered that oxygen was a cure for cancer, what Warburg actually discovered was that cancer cells were low in oxygen due to a change in cellular respiration from using oxygen to using fermentation of sugar. In his own words:

"Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar."*

—Otto H. Warburg

 

Regardless of what Warburg postulated and wrote earlier, in his later years he became convinced that illness resulted from pollution. In that, he came much closer to the true primary cause of cancer and other illness as had been postulated half a century earlier by the late great French scientist Antoine Bechamp: a combination of toxins and unhealthy cellular terrain.

Prolonged exposure to toxins, especially in combination with cells which have not been properly nourished, oxygenated, hydrated and cleansed is THE primary cause of cancer, especially so if one views radiation as a toxin. Over time the stress and inflammation that result from toxins leads to a dysfunction in the cellular mitochondria which leads to a cellular defense mechanism in which cells revert to a more primitive form of respiration (sugar fermentation), refuse to die, multiply and form a protective barrier.

Notably, though there have been many "prime causes" of cancer put forward, such as funguses, bacteria, viruses, parasites, stress, low pH and on and on - virtually every one of those has been around for thousands and thousands of years. What has not been around and what tracks exactly with the increased incidence of cancer is toxins.

Since the beginning of the industrial age, man has created over 100,000 unnatural chemical compounds which we have spewed or spilled into the air we breath, the soil our plants are grown in, and the water we drink. Add to that 1) the increased radiation from all the nuclear bombs (and more recently nuclear plant disasters such as Chernobyl and Fukushima) 2) microwave radiation, 3) the vaccines and other medications which the body recognizes as toxins, 4) all the pesticides, insectisides, cosmetic products and a world of household chemicals, and 5) the processed foods where harmful additive are processed in and nutrition is processed out. It all adds up to increased cancer.

Note: This article does not mean to imply that providing the body extra healthy oxygen, especially at the cellular level, cannot help beat cancer or is not healthy - and there are some good oxygen products out there, but it is the author's strong belief that relying solely on oxygen to beat cancer is not advisable.
