I’m silencing my social media accounts for a long while to give myself a break. I feel like I’ve been at war since last year. That is, unfortunately, how I see the state of modern discourse on social media. Wartorn and diseased by viral memes spreading racism, intolerance and ignorance that I no longer wish to wade through.

I didn’t even use my Twitter account prior to last year. Had no need of it. I only started using it during a Thunderclap campaign in June of 2014 to raise awareness about an organic treatment for cancer that even the ancient Egyptians knew about. Health Canada is directly lying to the public by claiming it (DCA) is only available as a byproduct of synthetic chemical processes instead of being bioavailable in red seaweeds.

When the massacre of Gazans began, I transitioned to using Twitter to try to raise awareness of Canada’s involvement in inciting the conflict. Our Prime Minister can be seen as playing a direct role in the rhetoric that lead to a massacre of children during the war alongside their civilian parents. His part was integral for providing international support and legitimacy. Had Canada been seen as opposing the war, it would have played out very differently in the International arena. However, our Prime Minister decided that Canada would stand with Israel “through fire and water.”

This wasn’t just a war on Palestine. This was a war on the family unit. The family unit has long been thought of as the most basic sub-unit of society. It was recognized and enshrined as such by the ICCPR, which Canada ratified in 1976. Alongside basic individual human rights, the rights of families are afforded a special status as well. Families become the tribes of modern society, with extended blood relations and intermarriage creating links between different tribes that span the globe.

To attack the protected status of family is to attack the extended tribe itself. To forever change the delicate balance of power between the rights of the citizen, the citizen’s family and the state. Dangerous precedents are being set. To forever silence entire families is to extinguish unique tribes of people.

Some people ignorantly insist that the definition of genocide must involve literally millions of people. And is usually associated with Holocaust-type activities.

Why?

Why are the most important factors how big your tribe is and how much money they have for PR and legal defense?

If your tribe only includes a father, a mother and a child, isn’t that a unique genetic lineage in and of itself? Shouldn’t a tribe of three be just as protected by law as a tribe of millions?

Why does genocide immediately have to be associated with trains and death camps? Why can’t it just be negative State interference with families?

The simple answer is that our ancestors accepted a certain amount of State interference in the family unit which has expanded significantly over time.

Following World War II, there was a whole generation of people that grew with parents who smoked, including during pregnancy. Women would go to work in smoke-filed environments. This lead to a lot of low birth weight babies and the Baby Boomer generation. It also lead to increased support from the State for medical interventions necessary to save the life of a low birth weight newborn.

This lead to a backlash in the next generation who grew up with the ‘perceived evils’ of smoking and avoided exposure to cigarettes to ensure a healthy pregnancy. High birth weight babies became the goal of the state interference. The health of the mother became secondary to her breeding potential to supply the State with the next generation of wage slaves, wage slave owners, support staff bureaucrats, lawyers and soldiers to defend the State itself.

Far from the State simply supporting the family unit as a unique tribe, the State forcibly subjugated the family unit to the wishes by attacking the defined role of women and children in the family. The State redefined the family unit along State oriented lines and goals. They created mandates which gave themselves power to further interfere with the family unit.

Where throughout history, child birth was accomplished without any necessary State interference, women in modern Western societies must undergo invasive and unnatural procedures to ‘protect’ their health and the health of their newborn during the birthing process. Thousands of books are available telling expectant mothers the millions of things that can go wrong. It’s like a variation of Murphy’s Law that encompasses the nocebo effect, the opposite of the placedo effect.

Worrying about everything little thing that might go wrong, will usually cause something to go wrong.

When the State combines the fear of child birth with the fear of dying you get a hypersexualized society with grossly overly accentuated definitions of the male and female roles in society. You end up with Miley Cyrus and Justin Beiber and a whole generation of music marketed at teens designed to turn them into mindless followers of trends. Sheep who only exist to follow their pop culture shepherds. Or Judas goats.

I call it ‘Death Blooming.’ I use a similar process in my plant-insect research. By exposing plants to insect breeding byproducts, a cellular response is triggered that forces rapid growth and nutrient uptake. The plants sense themselves as infested with insects and initiate a massive burst in growth, which also increases blooming and fruiting potential.

The State uses the same mentality against us with threats of terrorism and jihadists hiding under our beds. They make use think our country is ‘infested’ with our enemies who wish us harm. A similar tactic was used during the Red Scare-era of McCarthyism. Invent a threat lurking the minds of strangers that must be investigated by the State.

By using rhetoric that heightens our fears of both living and dying, the State creates a vicious circle of procreation. Fear of dying due to wars, plagues and poverty compounds our existing fears of dying of cancer or other ills of our increasingly sick society. This creates a drive towards sexualizing youth at a younger and younger age to ensure continuity of our species.

A similar process is currently occuring in Tasmania, where the Tasmanian Devils are fighting a battle with a rare parasitic form of cancer. The cancer is know as the devil facial tumor disease and affects large portions of their population. Once infected, a devil dies within 12-18 months from the condition as expanding facial tumors interfere with breathing and feeding. The cancer can also undergo metastasis and move to other organs in the body. Previously to this disease, the Tasmanian devil’s reproduction cycle didn’t commence until around the age of two. With the increase in mortality rates amongst the species, survival is being maintained as females of the species have responded by reaching sexual maturity at around a year old, half of their previous age. This can be seen as a natural species response to possible extinction.

Do humans have a similar response? Looking at Western culture, it would seem that we do. These cultures are driven by their fears and failings instead of their ideals. The fear of death, the fear of disease, the fear of poverty. The failings of racism, xenophobia and religious intolerance.

The fear of assault by those viewed as alien to our rigidly defined cultural viewpoints produces a false hyper-masculine image contrary to the health of the extended tribe. It creates psychotic totalitarian alpha male ideologies based on sub-segments of the species, nations or races, and allows them to become entrenched along lines that were previously occupied by religious thought. This creates the essence of Nationalism the the State devolves into. The worship of the nation or race above all else. Even God.

If you’re willing to put your nation above God, then where would you put the families of your neighbors? Certainly not higher than your own wellbeing or that of your family. What about families in other countries? They get put way down there. Dark skinned families in some place on the other side of the globe? The bottom of the pyramid that puts worship of the nation in place of God. It moves God from the position of supremacy overall in relation to the limits of State authority to the position of nothingness and powerlessness.

Biblically, this State of being is known the Abomination. Or Obamanation. Or Fordnation. Or HarperPAC. You should get the point. People using the media to set themselves up as idols to be worshiped. Demagogues. Gog and Magog. False hyper-masculine images. False father figures. ‘Father knows best.’ Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Hussein, Netanyahu, Gaddafi, Reagan and now Harper.

Recent political decisions regarding the religious adornment of Muslim women demonstrate the evident inversion of the pyramid of values in Canada. Demanding women ‘bare their face before Canada’ in the same manner a bride might unveil at a wedding is a very obvious inversion of the values Canada is based upon. The preamble of Canada’s Charter recognizes the Supremacy of God and the rule of law, not the Supremacy of Maple Syrup as a divine religious symbol one marries upon gaining citizenship.

Not only has Canada become an abomination, it also appears we are the end-time abomination warned about in all three Abrahamic Faiths. The Book of Daniel describes ten kingdoms united under a single king. In Canada we have ten provincial crowns united under a federal crown. We also have a Prime Minister who makes a lot of proud boasts and understands dark (racist) sentences. He also went to Israel in January of 2014 and declared Canada, the nation, would stand with Israel ‘through Fire and Water’, in the same manner that God stood with Israel in the book of Isaiah. In that manner he exalts himself above God. Muslims might recognize the Leader of the Reformers (Reform Party) who are corrupting the world mentioned in Quran.

Every piece of the Abrahamic puzzle fits so well into right here and right now that there really isn’t a way to deny it except through devout atheism or deliberately ignorant misinterpretation of all three religious texts.

So while you’re firing up your BBQs this Canada Day, try to remember what you’re really celebrating.

The unholy nation that legitimized cultural genocide and the rights of the State over families and the extended tribe we are all part of.

The unholy nation that has been warned about in a series of religious texts for thousands of years.

The unholy nation that is hiding the cure for cancer and other oxidative stress disorders.

Anyone who says “These are different times.” are using the same logic the Nazis espoused.

These are times when we take issue with the differences between us.

We take issue with people who wear different religious attire. We take issue with people who go to their church on a different day. We take issue with those of different skin color or even just different financial status.

These aren’t different times. These are Intolerant Times. If that is the case, I’m all for the End Of These Times.

If it means we can move past these petty issues that have plagued mankind in its infancy…

If it means we can move from endlessly attacking diversity to endlessly celebrating diversity…

If it means we can move towards a better and brighter future for all…

Bring it on.

I’ve been holding off on discussing matters proceeding through the court, but the continuing abuse of process is becoming exceptionally disturbing.

Let’s start at the beginning. I’ve been saying for a while that the lawyer for the Hospital committed perjury. This was a mistake on my part. What he actually did is known as establishing a false pretense. He presented false information as fact and ran with it on a public record. This same lawyer also happens to be the Head Adjudicator for NL Human Rights. He’ll have to answer for his statements as they seem to violate the rules of candor a lawyer takes an oath to uphold.

Another interesting fact from my case was the layout of the court room. They positioned the screen that featured my legal aide lawyers, as well as my parents who were calling in, on the side of the defendant. From the judge’s point of view, I had no representation present and the hospital had five lawyers as well as my parents calling in one their side. How is a judge supposed to properly weigh facts in his mind if they’re all being presented as a literal one-sided argument? The screen for my lawyers and family should have been positioned on the other side of the court room. It was a kangaroo court from the first moment to the last. The audio record won’t show the discrepancy, but there were plenty of witnesses.

Moving on to the uttering threats charge, the charges were dismissed for lack of an actual threat. For those of you with an understanding of computer logic statements, it amounted to an ‘If, then’ statement. I got the idea from an old common law case. Someone had placed his hand on his sword and said something along the lines of “I’d run you through right now IF not for that fact that the justice is in town.” The conditional ‘if’ in the statement defeated the charge of uttering threats by not actually being a threat. I found this out through wikipedia while researching a similar matter I had brought before me earlier in the year. The RCMP actually realized this during their investigation prior to the search warrant being issued, but they chose to proceed anyways.

At this point, it becomes a matter of a negligent investigation by the RCMP and RNC and an abuse of process by the Crown attorney who authorized my initial week long detainment. They saw fit to press a justice for the subsequent search warrant that led to the arrest of my wife and the seizure of all my research which still hasn’t been returned.

Despite the fact that the charges have been terminated, the RCMP are continuing to detain my research devices and say they’ll continue to request detention orders until the cultivation charges are resolved, despite the devices having no immediate relevance to the matter.

On what grounds can they keep these devices and deny me access to my business and research? The search warrant that brought them into my home had no legal and lawful framework. They may have been operating on good faith, but they also have a duty to determine if a crime has actually been committed. Otherwise they stalked me for issuing an idle non-threat. They just didn’t understand what constitutes a threat legally. Should have called a lawyer first. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Even if they were operating in good faith, the fact that I’d been detained and missed my Charter Challenge for no lawful reason still hasn’t been addressed in the slightest. Justice delayed is justice denied, and right now

The RCMP, RNC and others can claim they were acting with good intentions, but the road to Hell is paved with those. I’m sure the guards at the Nazi Concentration Camps thought they were just dealing with a pesky vermin problem so their good upstanding neighbors wouldn’t have to mess their clothes.

No matter how you slice it, the mentality of Nazism has taken hold in Canada and sunk its roots deep into Newfoundland. With our genocidal and slavery-stained past, it should come as no surprise to any student of Newfoundland’s history.

The rights of individual citizens, families, the poor and the disabled, are being abused and degraded in Canada, especially in Newfoundland. By underfunding the judiciary, hiring too many police officers without a proper understanding of the law, and choking our legal system with a “Tough on Crime” mentality, we lose the ability for the legal system to operate in a fundamentally just fashion.

Instead of an independent and efficient judiciary, I’ve seen Crown attorneys arbitrarily flout legal and ethical standards. I’ve seen lawyers operating in conflict of interest positions and not being penalized. I’ve seen police with no respect for their duty to uphold the Charter as the Supreme Law of Canada as written in our Constitution. None of these people are above the law. I submitted peacefully to the whole process, but now I’m not going to remain quiet any longer. The police and Crown have made a mockery of our court system to keep themselves employed. Not even to uphold the law. Just for money.

I don’t know about anyone else who reads this blog, but I’m sick of how closed off NL is to realizing the bureaucracy has become completely corrupt. People pretend it’s just minor corruption, but it runs deeper than you can imagine.

After all, Newfoundland is the only place in the world to have completed the genocide of a First Nation. Plenty of building and companies named Beothuk, but not a single member of the tribe remaining. No wonder people here can’t accept their sacrificial role in being the catalyst for the racial divisions, genocide and war that is currently occurring globally.

Don’t expect the change to happen because of some rally. Or some vote. No occupy or anonymous movement will save us. This has to be direct citizen to citizen action.

Talk to people. Explain your point of view. Explain that approval seeking bootlickers in politics will never be able to fix anything. True change requires a real effort. Politicians just step up to ‘manage’ or ‘facilitate’, but really they just take credit for the hard work of others. Nothing will come of waiting for a vote and expecting the governments to follow the law when they’ve already repeatedly demonstrated no respect for it.

We can’t ask for change. We end up ask beggars on the street.

We have to seize change and demand a return to a more free, just, open and democratic society.

A research associate of mine sent me this a while back.

Thought it might be of interest to anyone who’s been following the seaweed portion of the blog, I can’t remember mentioning it directly.

Hypoxia-mediated downregulation of miRNA biogenesis promotes tumour progression

Here we report a previously unrecognized effect of hypoxia in the downregulation of ​Drosha and ​Dicer in cancer cells that leads to dysregulation of miRNA biogenesis and increased tumour progression. (Published 

You might notice that the recognition of this effect existing through the study of whale diving patterns was first published back on May 12th, 2012.

Been a over a week since I posted that last update, so I felt obliged to follow up on it.

Let me fill in a little background information on other things I work on for those who haven’t read down past the post regarding Canadian politics.

There’s a compound currently in use across the world called DCA. Dichloroacetate, usually as a sodium or potassium salt. It’s classified as completely synthetic, but it’s been shown for decades to have an effect on people and animals with mitochondrial disorders.

In 2007, researchers at the University of Alberta published research that showed it was shrinking tumors in lab animals. After researching the effect in vitro and in vivo, they theorized that the method of action was a catalytic effect on the mitochondria of each cell which was restoring basic functionality that is known to be lacking in all cancerous cells. Restoring this functionality allows pre-cancerous cells to return to normal and triggers apoptosis (natural cell death) in cancerous cells, shrinking tumors.

If it helps, you can think of the cell as a mini-computer in your body’s Internet. DNA is your cell’s hard drive where it stores all the information about how to build each of your cells and interact with neighboring cells. All the processing of this information goes on within the various organelles of the cell. This cellular fluid is the data bus that allows information to transit between these various sites and the cell wall is where it communicates with the cellular Internet. One of the most important organelles, the mitochondria, performs key processes that are essential to multicellular life. It controls efficient energy production through oxidative phosphorylation, as well as triggering important cellular processes like apoptosis. Think of this as sort of an Inner Engine that acts as malware protection for your cellular computer. It protects not only the cell, but the neighboring network of cells. When it malfunctions, the cell begins to lose its multicellular character, instead acting like the single celled or colony organisms that multicellular life evolved from. We call this malfunctioning state cancer.

The University of Alberta’s research was initially seen favorably as providing a foundation for a new non-toxic and non-invasive treatment for cancers that seemed to be broad spectrum. All cancerous cells steal their energy requirements from neighboring non-cancerous cells, producing their own energy through glycolysis, an energy production regime that produces energy through the fermentation of sugars. This energy production process takes place in the cellular fluid and is, evolutionarily speaking, one of the most ancient metabolic pathways. It’s common in single-celled organisms as it allows them to produce energy in the absence of oxygen. Multicellular life requires active mitochondria capable of using oxygen to produce energy more efficiently. When these newer metabolic pathways break down, we end up with cancer or other conditions as our cells strive for individual instead of multicellular survival.

What makes the mitochondria of a cell malfunction?

It can be any number of factors. Toxins, mutation due to radiation, genetic factors, or just general oxidative stress from diet and lifestyle. A single malfunctioning mitochondria doesn’t mean you’ll end up with cancer. Some cells, like those in your liver, have thousands of these organelles. Since the liver is responsible for dealing with toxins, the high number of mitochondria per cell make sense. It maximizes the cellular processing power available for removing toxins from the body. But if you pour enough toxins and stress into your body for long enough, even the thousands of mitochondria in your liver cells can go on strike.

This compound, DCA, seemed to have the potential to reactivate these important cellular functions. It alleviates oxidative stress by restoring mitochondrial function. This much had already been known for years, as that was its original use in both humans and animals prior to the cancer discovery in 2007. Several studies were funded by Health Canada and contributions from individuals, but no interest was ever found from the pharmaceutical industry. DCA is an off-patent compound. It was first synthesized and patented decades ago and that patent has long since expired. Because the compound is so simple, it’s difficult to make a signature version of the compound to produce a similar effect. Therefore, there’s been no commercial interest in funding research.

Since the initial publishing, new research has come to light that shed doubt on DCA’s ability to deal with broad spectrum cancers. The University of Guelph in Ontario released their findings in 2010 that DCA was ineffective against hypoxic tumors. When considering that the mitochondria requires the presence of oxygen to perform its energy generation, this makes sense according to the theory put forth by Alberta regarding DCA’s function. What Guelph found was that DCA was actually strengthen these hypoxic cells, making them more resistance to traditional forms of chemotherapy.

What doesn’t make sense is what followed. Instead of concluding that they should treat the hypoxia as a symptom that can be relieved, the conclusions out of Guelph were that DCA was simply unsuitable for use as a broad spectrum treatment.

Why?

This is where my thoughts entered the picture and my thinking went in a different direction.

In 2007, while the father of one of my friends was dying with cancer, I first learned of the DCA results published in Alberta. At the time, the research seemed exciting and innovative and really caught my interest. I knew the results were only preliminary, but the seemed to advance the knowledge of cancer in a bold new direction that looked to provide real answers. It gave me hope that the cure had been found.

One of the my first thoughts regarding this compound as I learned more was that it was incredibly simple. Structurally, it’s identical to the acetate ion (vinegar), but with two of the hydrogen atoms on the methyl-group replaced by chlorine. Why would a compound as simple as vinegar that has such a beneficial impact on cellular machinery not exist in nature?

Since the presence of heavier halogens like chlorine is foreign to fresh water lakes and streams, I wondered if it didn’t occur naturally in a marine environment instead. Sea water is full of heavy halogens and plants like seaweed concentrate it out of the sea water for their own uses. This is why seaweed is use as a source of iodine. In realizing that, I came to the conclusion early on that seaweeds might be an overlooked source of compounds like DCA, theorizing that iodine might replace the chlorine in the compound to produce a stronger analogue.

I wrote letters to researchers, posted in science-based forums, and emailed email listservs to try to find new information. The closest I found to the Iodine-based version of the compound was a bit of scientific research on tomato wound healing where they used sodium diiodoacetate to perform the electrophoretic seperation of RNA. The research paper mentioned a book from the 80s that described the method used, but that had been removed from subsequent editions of the book and I couldn’t find the original to learn more.

In 2011, after years of hobby research, I was directed to a chemical research site by a colleague. Through that site I found a link to research conducted by a researcher from New Zealand who’d been studying a popular edible Hawaiian red seaweed. The research had been published in the late 70s. The intent had been to determine what kinds of organic acids exist in the edible species. Sure enough, right there in the middle of the document was not only the chlorinated version, DCA, but the Iodine-based version I’d been looking for, and other compounds based on Bromine and a mix between Iodine, Bromine and Chlorine.

Just so we’re clear here, this research paper from the 70s proves that DCA is not a new synthetic compound as is currently put forth by the modern medical establishment. Evolutionarily speaking, red seaweeds are exceptionally old. They are among the first multicellular life to evolve on this planet.

Excited by this new finding, I fired up my email and forums and began trying to talk to people about the idea again. I was met with doubt and disbelief and one person who sent me the link to the Guelph hypoxia studies, which he believed proved that DCA was unsuitable for use. Because I’d been considering the source as occurring naturally in marine environments, I had a different perspective on the issue of hypoxia. Marine animals don’t have to worry about hypoxic tissue the same way us land animals do. They can live at depths in the ocean where the atmospheric pressure is so high that oxygen dissolves directly into fluids as opposed to being carried by the blood. This combination creates a niche where animals who consume large quantities of phytoplankton and krill, and also spend their days diving deep, would be receiving these potent anti-cancer benefits naturally. This would allow them to grow to a prodigious size and be able to fend off cancers with ease, relative to us poor land animals limited to a very narrow window of atmospheric pressure in our daily lives.

Hence blue whales.

To clarify everything so far, let me restate it:

  • Synthetic compound (DCA) turns out to have anti-cancer properties – 2007
  • My original hypothesis that DCA may occur naturally – 2007
  • Synthetic compound (DCA) is shown not to work on hypoxic tumors – 2010
  • Rediscovery that DCA is not synthetic but occurs naturally in Asparagopsis Taxiformis – 2011
  • Hypothesis that hyperbaric therapy eliminates the hypoxic symptoms  – 2012

Trying to put all this together, I made a video that tries to explain it as best I can in plainer language for a general audience. It received very little attention. There are a million people out there who claim to have found a treatment for cancer, I’d just become another crank with a theory in a very large pond.

Fast Forward to 2014

After publishing the information online in 2012 and sending it out to various research groups who promptly ignored it, I became a little discouraged about the whole problem. I’m not wealthy in the material sense, so I have no way of bringing these concepts forward myself. I’m currently trying to build another business to help finance my other research, but I’m having plenty of difficulty there, even though I’m working with a simpler concept that is easier to prove.

I did start eating seaweed on a regular basis after obtaining a regular supply of dulse from Real Raw Food in Vancouver so the idea was never far from my mind. I didn’t have access to a hyperbaric chamber or the money to go scuba diving on a regular basis though, so I was still searching for a way to obtain the full benefits. I hoped that more research would be completed that would verify my thoughts or that someone would stumble across mine and might trigger some inspiration that would lead them to the answers.

I built this blog, ParadigmSlip, as a means for cataloging some of the various research I’ve completed and for ease of sharing. I’d found it difficult to talk directly about these ideas because they’re so esoteric, so a blog seemed like the best way to keep my thoughts organized. I hadn’t done much work on the seaweed/hyperbaric cancer theory as I waited for more results of existing DCA therapy to be published.

During Spring of 2014, I was home watching the movie “The Fountain”, when I had an epiphany. The Fountain starts with a quote from the Bible:

Genesis 3:24 – So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way of the tree of life.

During one of the first scenes, the main character is accosted by someone with a literal flaming sword. The juxtaposition of the image of a flaming sword and that particular Biblical quote brought up an image in my mind from my research. Asparagopsis taxiformis, the same seaweed that I’d been researching for its health benefits, looks like a flaming sword that turns back and forth under water. The flaming sword wasn’t meant to be thought of as guarding the Tree of Life, but showing the way to the Tree of Life.

Red Seaweed even shows up at the base of the Tree of Life of modern evolutionary theory. It’s one of the first multicellular lifeforms to appear on the planet. It contains potent compounds shown to promote mitochondrial functioning that can’t form in fresh water sources naturally.

The idea that the mythological Tree of Life that appears in a variety of ancient cultures might have a common origin in red seaweeds instead of terrestrial plants set my mind on fire. I started digging through the mythologies of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Maya, and hordes of others looking for common links and finding many.

Another commonality that blew my mind was that all these ancient cultures who’d incorporated this red seaweed into their lifestyle to the point of venerating it were also monument building hydraulic cultures. Not only that, but with my understanding of the need for eliminating hypoxia, their monuments seemed to serve a purpose beyond being simple temples for religious worship or burial mounds.

They were hyperbaric chambers, powered by water.

There’s a lot more that I have to write on this subject, but I wanted to publish this much for today. Most of the next post will be in regards to the mythological and Biblical links.

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city.

Honey is liquid gold.

Raw honey, diluted at the proper ratios, continually produces hydrogen peroxide as a natural antibacterial agent. Hydrogen peroxide is decomposed in vivo into oxygen and water. Drinking a regular shot of honey and water adds both oxygen and hydrogen peroxide to your digestive tract without the need for it to be carried there by the blood.

Combined with the dihalogenated acetates that come from red and brown seaweed (the original, most ancient and most powerful antioxidants), you’ve got the cheapest oxidative stress therapy ever.

Beekeepers Have Low Incidence of Cancer

DCA IS NOT A SYNTHETIC COMPOUND.
IT OCCURS NATURALLY IN SEAWEED.

 

A discovery in the science of cancer has pointed the way towards naturally occurring compounds capable of treating cancers (as well as cellular oxidative stress in general) and a method for inducing a stronger systemic response through other naturally available options.

The non-toxic drug DCA, currently being tested in Canada, has been found to be present in seaweeds, along with a family of similar dihalogenated acetates. We’re trying to raise awareness of the facts below to push for this research to be completed.

Cancer Resistant Niches – A Natural Mechanism for Treating Cancer in a Marine Environment

Ancient cultures have made extensive use of this compound in seaweeds as well.

Researchers:

To accurately verify this information for yourself, you’ll need access to a hyperbaric chamber, a hypoxic cancer cell line and a sample of dichloro-, dibromo-, diiodo-, or iodobromo- acetic acid or its salts. All of these are present in the essential oils of Asparagopsis taxiformis, also known as a limu kohu, an important part of the Hawaiian diet.

These items are fairly specialized, but one simple experiment could pave the way for a world where cancer has become a thing of the past.

Been a while since I’ve been able to update the site. Been busy with work and other projects.

I’ve got a new theory on how to decrease global warming using an insect-based growth stimulant. If produced in massive enough quantities and used in agriculture and forestry world-wide, it should stimulate enough carbon dioxide uptake through vegetative growth to significantly offset man-made sources. I’ll be posting more on it in the future.

For now, there’s been zero feedback on the cancer theory. There were about 150 unique visitors to the site in June and around 60 so far in July, but no comments or emails so far.

 

 

The Theory

  1. There exists a family of naturally occurring halogenated acetates that are known to enhance the function of mitochondria.
  2. When these compounds are present in cancerous cells they have the potential to reactivate certain functions of the mitochondria, triggering apoptosis.
  3. For the process to be effective, oxygen must be present in the cell. For hypoxic tumors, this necessitates the introduction of high pressure oxygen therapy to saturate the cells with oxygen.
  4. A natural version of this process is already in effect for marine life.

 

The current cancer paradigm

There are over 200 types of human cancer. This is because there are over 200 different human cell types that can become cancerous. Depending on where they occur in the body, they produce different symptoms. A cancerous tumor could be composed of the same cell type, but will require different treatment if it occurs in the brain, lungs or liver.

This has lead to much research in chemotherapy compounds that target specific cell types and tumor locations. Individuals can also react differently to the same chemo drugs, so detailed genetic profiling must be done to determine if the drugs will be effective at all. Even with all the money spent researching these exotic compounds and investigating the genetic profile of the patient and tumor, the success rate of these drugs are low enough that oncologists will refuse the same treatment they’re prescribing.

Even if the chemo is successful in eradicating the tumor, most of the drugs used in the treatment have seriously debilitating side effects and are also known carcinogens that can trigger the further development of cancer later on in life.

At this point in time, there are few accepted avenues for treatment that don’t involve carcinogenic chemotherapy, damaging radiation or invasive surgery.

 

The common ground

Cancer is considered to be a modern day plague, brought on our diets full of artificial compounds, our high stress lifestyles and our increased exposure to environmental toxins. While the majority of the current research involves studying the genetic causes of cancer and how those genes interact with chemotherapy drugs, recent research has identified alternative routes for attacking cancerous cells that don’t rely on toxic and carcinogenic compounds, radiation or surgery. Instead, these compounds activate natural pathways of the mitochondria that can trigger the programmed cell death of cancerous cells, also known as apoptosis.

In apoptosis the cell doesn’t simply die, but rather it dissolves into distinct cellular fragments which are then processed by other cells in the body safely. In the case of cell that had been disrupted by a toxic or carcinogenic chemical, the process of apoptosis allows the compound to remain safely enclosed in cellular fragments of the former cell when engulfed by the body’s cellular recycling system. This differs from when a cell dies due to injury or necrosis. In that case the damaged cellular membrane simply releases its contents into the extracellular fluid, potentially damaging nearby healthy cells.

From this it can be seen that the function of the mitochondria is not only to provide energy for the cell and play a roll in programmed cell death, but they also play an important roll in supporting the health of differentiated tissue by ensuring cell death occurs in an orderly manner that doesn’t affect nearby tissue.

Being able to trigger this cellular pathway is a universal means of treating cancer, one that doesn’t rely on detailed genetic profiling to target the use of toxic and damaging chemicals on specific types of cancer, radiation or surgery, but instead uses a natural cellular process to deal with cancer in a non-invasive manner.

 

The Discovery

In January of 2007, the University of Alberta reported that a drug (DCA or the salts of the dicholoroacetate ion) previously used in humans to treat a rare metabolic disorder was also biologically active in the treatment of various forms of cancer.

Their theory of how the drug operates involves the Warburg Effect, a known phenomenon in cancerous cells where the cells are hypoxic and do not use oxygen and the mitochondria for energy generation, instead using other pathways that harvest energy from nearby healthy cells. According to their research, DCA appears to reactivate mitochondrial function, which also reactivates the mitochondria’s ability to regulate cellular functions, including apoptosis. This results in cell death for cancerous cells, leaving healthy cells undamaged.

I’m going to expand on their theory by examining certain properties of DCA which could be responsible for its biological activity in the treatment of cancers as well as providing examples of its existing activity in marine environments. The goal being to expand this theory into a laboratory environment where it can be rigorously tested.

 

Current Status of Clinical Trials in Canada

On May 12th of 2010, the Department of Medicine released the results of their Phase II clinical trials completed in conjunction with Health Canada, involving in vivo (within the living) testing of DCA. The results were found to be in agreement with earlier in vitro (within glass) studies. They have since begun seeking funding for the Phase III trials. These drug trials are prohibitively expensive and are normally funding by companies within the pharmaceutical industry interested in capitalizing on the development of new drugs. Since DCA is a cheap and off-patent compound, a successful Phase III trial could spell the end for a number of lucrative drug lines currently used to aggressively treat cancer. Due to this economic factor, the funding for the Phase III trials is largely being compiled with donations from private individuals.

The use and availability of DCA is regulated for a reason. People attempting to take DCA without proper knowledge of dosage or even the proper form of the compound to be taken run the risk of doing major damage to their health. Side effects from exceeding a safe daily dosage can damage and interfere with nerve cells. At high enough doses, DCA itself has been shown to display cancer-causing properties.

There is also the danger of those unfamiliar with chemistry to seek out the acid form of DCA instead of a salt form such as sodium or potassium dichloroacetate.

I do not advocate the personal use of pure DCA salts by any readers without the oversight of a well-informed medical professional capable of dealing with and addressing any possible complication that may arise.

I’m currently aware of only one organization currently using DCA to treat cancer.  The Medicor Cancer Center in Toronto has been using DCA since 2007, treating patients with several different types of cancer. While having published only one paper pertaining to their results, they have made the results of their clinical use available online and found them to be in agreement with the University of Alberta’s studies.

 

Hypothesis on the function of DCA within cancer cells

 This hypothesis is based around the electrokinetic properties of the dichloroacetate ion. In the following diagram, I have provided an approximated atomic mass ratio comparison of the acetate and dichloroacetate ions, as well outlined the possible spin states that this arrangement of atoms could produce.

 

acetate-DCA

The ratios of masses are not intended to be shown to scale, but are there to simply illustrate the differences. For reference the standard atomic weights for each atom shown are as follows: Hydrogen ~ 1, Carbon ~ 12, Oxygen ~ 16, Chlorine ~ 35. To think of the molecule in terms of its center of mass, the standard acetate ion has a mass ratio of 15:44, split around the carbon-carbon bond. The chlorinated acetate, DCA, has a mass ratio of 76:44 split around the same carbon-carbon bond. As indicated in the diagram by the spin loop, the center of mass for rotation has moved from being centered towards the carboxyl group to the halogenated carbon. This new axis of rotation would give carboxyl group a more reactive presence as it moves in solution, a functional character not present in the normal acetate ion. The change can be demonstrated by something as simple as the odour and taste of each compound. When hydrogenated carbon is the reactive portion of the compound as in the acetate ion, the compound has a potent odour and taste. In DCA however, with the reactive portion of the compound being the carboxyl group, the compound is essentially odourless and tasteless.

 

DCA Analogues

Based on the theory that the source of DCA’s biological activity rests on the functional character of the carboxyl group, it becomes possible to predict structural and functional analogues that should produce a similar if not more potent effect on cancerous cells. By replacing the chlorine with heavier halogens, the effect of the carboxyl group would be magnified and the potency of its interactions within the cell that reactivate mitochondrial function should increase. The most potent of these structural and functional analogues would be the DIA ion or diiodoacetate.

dca-dia

As shown, the atomic mass ratio of the halogenated carbon to the carboxyl group is much larger, which should magnify the electrokinetic influence of the carboxyl group even further. Instead of the 74:44 mass ratio split around DCA’s carbon-carbon bond, there is a 267:44 split around the carbon bond of DIA. To put it in simpler terms, the iodine-based analogue of DCA is capable of producing more torque both on the carboxyl group and by extension, any compound the reactive carboxyl group is interacting with.

 

Food Sources for DCA/DIA

Acetate (the active ingredient in common vinegar), DCA and DIA are very simple carbon-based compounds. Each bears the same structure, but has slightly different functional characteristics. Acetate is considered to be a biotic or organic compound, as it has been shown to be produced by a natural process, namely, oxidation of alcohol by bacteria.

DCA is currently classified as a xenobiotic compound as it is not thought to occur naturally. One of the only process known to produce DCA as a trace product is the chlorination of water, an artificial process. DCA’s status as a xeno- or abiotic chemical means its use and availability can be heavily regulated, even to the point of denying its use to those who may benefit from established treatment regimes.

DCA, as well as its iodine and bromine-based analogues, can be obtained from a purely natural source as its presence has already been demonstrated in the edible seaweed Asparagopsis taxiformis (R. Moore, Phytochemistry Vol 18 pp 617-620 1979), also known as limu koku, which is a regular part of Hawaiian cuisine.

While currently having only been isolated in one species of seaweed, I believe the presence of these compounds in a species such as Aparagopsis taxiformis should found to be the rule rather than the exception. Seaweeds are natural concentrators of heavy halogens such as iodine, bromine and chlorine from sea water. For these heavy halogens to be used by cellular processes in the creation of potent antioxidants seems a natural use of elemental resources not readily available to terrestrial and freshwater plant life.

DCA is currently a regulated substance and I do not condone the use of DCA without the care of informed medical professionals, edible seaweeds such as Asparagopsis taxiformis that contain a naturally available version DCA and DIA should be safe to consume for those seeking its benefits. Until more research can be done into how processing techniques may alter the compounds present in processed seaweeds, the best option would be to ensure the seaweed is as fresh as possible.

 

DCA shown to fail with hypoxic tumors

In September of 2010, the University of Guelph announced their findings in regards to DCA and hypoxic tumors. They found that while tumours under normal oxygen conditions responded to DCA as predicted, tumours with restricted access to the blood carried oxygen supply reacted in a completed opposite manner when treated with DCA. Instead of triggering apoptosis, DCA seemed to act in a cytoprotective (cell-protecting) manner. Cancerous cells weren’t dying with the treatment, instead they were getting stronger and showed a decreased response to traditional forms of chemotherapy.

These results seemed to throw a major stumbling block in front of DCA research. Hypoxic tumors are common in cancer pathology as tumors outgrow their blood supply, so treatment with DCA could prove dangerous to a person suffering from a hypoxic tumor. Instead of killing the cancerous cells, DCA treatment could strengthen them, making them more resistant and harder to kill.

While this may have seemed like a roadblock, due to my search for DCA and analogues in seaweed, it gave the last piece I needed for my theory.

 

A pre-existing niche for dealing with Cancer

Since these compounds seem to appear at the base of the marine food chain, they should be available to all higher marine life. Any and all life that lives in the oceans should be receiving a cocktail of DCA and it’s analogues. But how to address the hypoxic tumor issue?

The answer has to due with pressure.

While we live our lives near or above sea level, our cells receive oxygen through 2 methods. The oxygen is either carried by the hemoglobin in our red blood cells, or it dissolves directly into our blood plasma. The oxygen-carrying capacity of our red blood cells far outweighs the amount of oxygen capable of dissolving in our blood plasma. However, this only remains true at standard atmospheric pressures. As you move below sea level, the concentration of dissolved oxygen increases with the pressure.  For creatures like fish that breath underwater, this means that their blood has to do less work, as more of the oxygen dissolves directly into blood plasma.

The effect also applies to temperature. As temperature decreases, so does the water’s ability to retain dissolved oxygen. The effect is so great, there is a species of fish in Antarctica that has no red blood cells to carry oxygen. Known as the crocodile icefish, they are the only known vertebrate that has no red blood cells, the only reason they’re capable of this feat is due to the particular niche they inhabit. At the temperatures provided by the Antarctic, and the pressures provided by the depths live in, the concentration of dissolved oxygen is great they evolved away the need for hemoglobin-based blood cells altogether. They offset this loss of oxygen-carrying cells by having a larger and more powerful heart, with wider capillaries to deal with a greater plasma volume. But for the rest of us, lacking the anti-freeze proteins and gills required to experience the crocodile ice fish’s level of dissolved oxygen, we have to make due with the use of pressure to obtain the dissolve oxygen levels we require. Marine mammals accomplish this by diving.

Baleen whales are known for their immense size, they are the largest creatures on the planet. They’re also known to live as long or longer than humans. This presents modern cancer theory with a bit of a conundrum. Larger animals have potentially more carcinogenic cells, as well as requiring more cell division to grow and sustain their prodigious size. This has lead to a variety of theories regarding the relatively reduced incidence of cancer amongst whales. Not to say that they don’t get cancer at all, it’s just that if their cancer rates matched human rates there wouldn’t be any blue whales.

Instead, it appears that through a combination of diet and environment, blue whales simply evolved into a cancer resistant niche. They consume vast amounts of krill, with a full grown blue whale consuming almost 4 tons of krill in a single day. Krill, in turn, feed on the phytoplankton that should be producing both DCA, DIA and bromine versions as they concentrate these heavy halogens out of seawater. With this kind of daily intake, their cells should be saturated with these compounds.

Blue whales typically feed at depths of 100 meters. At these depths, the pressure is about 11 atmospheres, or 11 times the pressure experienced at sea level. At these depths, the concentration of dissolved oxygen carried by the whales blood plasma instead of their cells is greatly increased. This allows oxygen to penetrate tissues inaccessible to the blood through its networks of capillaries by dissolving directly into the tissues. Through this mixture of a diet supplemented with a known cancer-fighting agent, combined with the increased pressure available in the depths of the oceans, whales seem to have evolved into a cancer resistant niche.

 

Questions that need to be answered

To replicate the diet and environment accessible to blue whales for human cancer treatment, a combination of dietary supplementation and hyperbaric oxygen treatment should provide the same conditions.  But before this theory can be applied in any manner, it must first be tested rigorously. A number of questions must be answered before anything can be done with human trials. However, as an individual, I don’t have the resources to complete this testing on my own. I need assistance from others to answer the following questions:

What is the efficacy of DIA compared to DCA?

Will hypoxic cancer cells respond to a combination of DCA or DIA and hyperbaric oxygen treatment?

What are the threshold levels of both DCA/DIA supplementation and hyperbaric oxygen required for effective treatment?

Are there different threshold levels for different cancers and different stages of cancer progression?

 

Alternative Options

While the clinical use of DCA/DIA and hyperbaric oxygen requires a number of questions to be answered, it’s possible that these answers may lead to a much simpler way of treating cancers in the long term. Instead of consuming DCA/DIA as a separate supplement, it could be added to the diet by increasing a person’s intake of edible seaweeds. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment could be replicated by extended scuba dives.

Wouldn’t the world be a better place if a cancer diagnosis wasn’t a potential death sentence, but was instead an invitation to spend a few weeks on vacation somewhere tropical, scuba diving and eating seaweeds?
