States Boosting Immune System Is Essential In Fighting Cancer

CBCD Research published in the journal Acta Oncologica backs up claims made by the cancer fighting, non-profit's website.

Los Angeles (I-Newswire) December 30, 2012 - According to an article, "Intuition tells you (more like SHOUTS at you) that you need to build up your immune system to combat the cancer and to restore your overall health."

This is backed up by research conducted by scientists at the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD.) In fact, a study revealed that a complete recovery of the immune system ( and an amazing 34% reduction in tumor size in a patient with pancreatic cancer was accomplished by boosting the immune system through the use of a natural antiviral supplement called Gene-Eden-VIR.

That study was published in Acta Oncologica, a leading scientific journal in clinical oncology and related disciplines, and the official journal of the five Nordic oncological societies.

Moreover, according to an article published by Reuters, and written by Bill Berkrot, "The concept of using the immune system against cancer dates back to the 1890s when Dr. William Coley, a New York surgeon, noted that some patients who got infections after cancer surgery fared better."

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) has long advocated the need for people to maintain ahealthy immune system. The immune system is key in the body's defense against many different chronic diseases, including cancer.

According to the WebMD website ( "If you're among the 1.5 million people in the United States diagnosed with cancer each year, you may be considering taking vitamins and supplements for cancer. Supplements, herbs, and extracts are increasingly used in integrative medicine to:

*Help strengthen the immune system
*Help ease side effects of chemotherapy and radiation."

In simple terms, medical experts today highly recommend taking supplements to help patients fight cancer.

How did Gene-Eden-VIR boost the immune system according to the study mentioned above?

Gene-Eden-VIR targets the cause of most cancers, not the symptoms. Consider breast cancer as an example. The current belief in the medical community holds that most cases of breast cancer are caused by a mutation in a certain gene. Genes, in general, produce proteins, which are the building blocks of cells. The concentration of proteins is tightly regulated. A mutated or injured gene produces an abnormal concentration of its protein, which may lead to disease.

In 1994, Mark Skolnick, PhD, discovered the BRCA1 gene (BRCA1 is short for BReast CAncer 1). Following the discovery, scientists observed a low level of the BRCA1 protein in breast cancer tissues.

This observation created a lot of excitement. At the time, scientists believed that they were on the verge of finding the cause of breast cancer. The reasoning was that breast cancer patients must have a mutated BRCA1 gene, which would explain the decreased production of the protein, and the development of tumors.

In the United States, 180,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year. However, only 5% of these cases have a mutated BRCA1 gene. In more than 95% of the breast cancer patients the gene is not mutated.

So here is the mystery. If the gene is not mutated in the great majority of the breast cancer patients, why are the tumors showing a low level of the BRCA1 protein? The BRCA1 gene is not unique. Many normal (perfect shape, non-mutated) genes exhibit a mysterious abnormal (increased or decreased) production of proteins in cancer.

And, breast cancer is only one example.

According to Dr. Hanan Polansky highly acclaimed scientific discovery [1], the cause of most cancers is latent viral DNA that lays hidden in human cells. To survive, the latent viral DNA feeds off the resources it "steals" from the human DNA in these cells, thereby creating a supply shortage for the human genes. The latent viral DNA, which is a genetic parasite, in fact "starves" the human genes, and causes them to behave irregularly, which leads to disease. This effect of the foreign DNA on human genes inspired Dr. Hanan Polansky to call the discovery the "starved" gene phenomenon.

Gene-Eden-VIR was designed to target the most common latent viruses that attack the human body.
