Cancer As a Continuum

“Some of his [Revici’s] findings predate ideas that are now widely accepted. According to Professor [Mark] Noble, Revici described leukotrienes and their crucial role in inflammation 20 years or more before they were described in the literature. Typically, he saw these compounds as a small part of a much larger picture. He subsequently described the important role of bioactive lipids in the early stages of cellular and systemic host defense processes, deducing that intervention by lipids at this level might drastically alter outcome.”
Emanuel Revici remains one of the few medical doctors in the world who identified cancer as a CONTINUUM with a polycentric origin.
“Holistic” medicine does no better than mainstream medicine, assigning SINGLE CAUSES to plural, hierarchic, and systemic processes.
Single causes include acidity, viruses, flukes, fungi, iron, nickel, lead, fluoride, DNA damage, sucrose, fructose, vitamin D deficiency, estrogen, progestin, GMO foods, nitrosamines, tobacco smoke, nanoparticles, dioxin, benzene, asbestos, glyphosate, vinyl chloride, 5G, radon, UV radiation, ionizing radiation, etc.

“Great mistakes are often made, even by men of culture, in fixing upon supposed causes of disease in particular cases. A single event is selected as in itself effective to explain the whole disaster, when that event alone was merely one of a whole train of causes.”

“In the late nineteenth century, Western medicine underwent a revolution of sorts as it moved to establish itself as a rigorous scientific discipline governed by stringent rules of evidence, predictability, and replication. The notion of specific etiology which has since been characterized as the ‘germ theory’ or ‘golden bullet approach’ was introduced by Rudolf Virchow in the latter third of the nineteenth century. This theory established the premise that a single specific agent could be identified as the cause of each specific disease.”
