I was asked to submit a minireview to this journal on oncology.
I’ll share an antidotal observation that may prove useful to cancer
researchers. I studied hyper-ferritism and Ferric Chloride to see
its possible link to schizophrenia. Those results are well published
[1,2]. However, I noticed from that research a trend that 12
patients who should have had high hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) also
universally had had some form of cancer in their medical history. I
wonder if H2O2 is not a carcinogen? Could the H2O2 break down
that cell walls leading to cell mutation? I’m not an expert on cancer,
nor do I intend to be, but perhaps this clue may lead to further
research into to the causes of cancer. I provide here some possible
chemical reactions that could take place in a system in balance. The
cell walls are fatty acids [3,4].
Lipids =Fatty Acids COOH
Carbon Ion + Hydrogen Peroxide + Water
R- COOH = CH3-COOH +H2+H2O
CH3-COOH +H2+H2O+O2 +Cl→
3CH2-COOH +2H2+2H2O +2O2+Cl2→
Animal studies have shown increases in liver and lung cancer
and benign mammary gland tumors following the inhalation of
methylene chloride (Figure 1).
Classification: B2; probable human carcinogen. Basis for
Classification: Based on inadequate human data and sufficient
evidence of carcinogenicity in animals; increased incidence of
hepatocellular neoplasms and alveolar/bronchiolar neoplasms in
male and female mice, and increased incidence of benign mammary
tumors in both sexes of rats, salivary gland sarcomas in male rats
and leukemia in female rats. This classification is supported by some
positive genotoxicity data, although results in mammalian systems
are generally negative. Human Carcinogenicity Data: Inadequate.
Animal Carcinogenicity Data: Sufficient.
So we see that dichloride methane, a carcinogen, could be the
culprit in allowing cancers (leukemia; Prostate; Breast; and lung
cancers) to form. I reiterate; I’m not an expert in the field. I simply
provide an observation that I hope is helpful to other researchers.
