Apoptosis

Many of our cancer patients come into the clinic and ask,

“What is Apoptosis?”

I’ve heard apoptosis is good for cancer. Yes, it is.

Apoptosis is induced cell death. Now let’s make sure we distinguish what we’re talking about here.

Good healthy cells will die off normally naturally, that’s just life. They’ll die off and then we have new ones creating and we are live. But with cancer cells, we want to induce Apoptosis.

It can be done by using cytotoxic agents or natural therapies. And also by diet we have well they have found that p53 tumor suppressor genes are linked to Apoptosis.

You can turn that to p53 suppressor genes on even by diet, because when those are turned on Apoptosis happens.
