* Viruses Are Not Alone-The Latest Cancer Research- This area is going to be a work in progress. The reader will see why when they get there. I have stated for the last 10 years that researchers have known for years that viruses cause cancer. Many have stated that viruses are the only cause of cancer, with "carcinogens" triggering viruses into causing cancer. Now we know that viruses are not the only microorganisms involved in the process. But do intracellular bacteria cause cancer by themselves or do they serve another purpose in this process? The section starts with a letter to my colleagues discussing this fascinating and paradigm-shifting information.
 
*An Email to Dogtor J's Medical Group- Viruses and Intracellular Bacteria- Benign Tumors vs. Malignancy vs. Granulomas- This is an Email I sent on 5-9-09 to my friends in veterinary research. It deals with the role of intracellular bacteria (e.g. mycoplasma) in the formation of tumors and the noncancerous lesions so often described as "idiopathic" or "autoimmune". Thank Goodness those terms are about to go the way of the dinosaurs.
 
* Important Links on Viruses, Bacteria and Cancer - The following links will help take the interested reader as far down this rabbit hole as they would like to go. Although this is a vital topic and a fascinating journey, I have to warn you that the going can- and will- get quite uncomfortable at times. But please keep in mind that we can still do much to prevent and treat these frightening conditions. We must focus on removing the triggers (e.g. carcinogens, dietary lectins, pollutants) and keeping our immune systems healthy. The viruses and bacteria are here to stay. We must simply make ourselves strong enough to live with them- even the man-made ones.

Dear Medical Friends,

 

This study of viruses and bacteria just keeps getting “funner and funner”. Cancer is beginning to make perfectly good sense. (Of course, like everything else, it is a good news, bad news thing. The good news is that we can do something about it.)

 

After looking into the natural roles of viruses and repeating the process with intracellular bacteria (L-forms and mollicutes) and having read a sizeable number of scientific, more-facts-than-needed types of articles, I have made these discoveries and come to these conclusions:

 

1)   Viruses and bacteria are natural inhabitants of our bodies. (This is a given)

2)   Both viruses and bacteria mutate to suit their environment and the challenges they sustain. (Another given)

3)   Some viruses (e.g. retroviruses) incorporate their genetic information into the nuclear DNA of cells while many intracellular bacteria exchange their genetic information with that of the mitochondrial DNA. (Scientific fact)

4)   Mitochondria are not only the “powerhouses of the cell” but are also involved in cell differentiation, cell death, and cell division through their own independent machinery used in protein synthesis, including DNA, messenger and transfer RNAs, and ribosomes.  (Scientific fact)

5)   In pathology we have benign and malignant tumors, “precancerous” lesions, and granulomatous diseases. Among neoplasms, we have a range of well-differentiated to poorly differentiated tumors. (Scientific fact)

6)   Among those tumors that can occur in the skin and in the mouth (e.g. melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma), those in the mouth are typically much worse (behaviorally more malignant). We have typically explained this difference by their rich blood supply but is that so? Cancer doesn’t like oxygen anymore than the individual components (viral and bacterial) that cause that cancer. So, what is the biggest difference between a melanoma sitting on the skin of the muzzle and one on the inside the mouth invading the gum? One answer is the presence of bacteria.

7)   Conclusion: The difference between granulomas (e.g. sarcoidosis), benign tumors and malignancies is the presence or absence of one of the two main entities- the virus and the intracellular bacteria. In granulomas, the action is governed by the intracellular bacteria through their influence in the mitochondrial DNA. In benign tumors, the action is governed by the presence of a virus in the nuclear DNA. But in (some/many/all) malignancies, the action is governed by both. Could malignancies be a viral tumor that is “secondarily infected” with bacteria, just like other disease processes we see (e.g. IBS, atopic pyoderma, asthma, etc.)? This would help to explain “premalignant” lesions and conditions like sebaceous adenomas and perianal gland tumors in which the vast majority are benign…until a malignancy finally pops up. And speaking of perianal gland tumors (and mast cell tumors of that area), is there an area of skin subject to more potentially virulent bacteria on the body other than around the mouth? (Speaking of bacterial influence, how many benign intestinal tumors do we see?)

 

I had a case of a very strange malignancy in the foot of a Labrador retriever last year. It was never definitively diagnosed by Antech except for being a highly undifferentiated sarcoma. It occurred after what appeared to be a stab wound between the toes. The owner thought he had stepped on glass in the backyard and that’s just what it looked like. But, the lesion that appeared a month later continued to grow, leading the biopsy. We tried some medications and natural remedies but it continued to grow, leading to amputation of the leg. What got in there? A new virus, a new bacteria, or both? Did a bacteria enter an area where a virus already resided?

 

Is this what happens in other cancers?  Do mycoplasma do this? Are mycoplasmal vaccine contaminants (which we know occur) part of the process of vaccine-induced sarcomas or is it just the adjuvant activating a residential virus? Could a secondary infection with intracellular bacteria be the thing that decompensates the FeLV, FIV, or HIV individual, knowing that L-forms and mollicutes invade white cells (as well as platelets and RBCs) and compromise their vitamin D receptors, creating a state of immunodeficiency within that cell?

 

It has been postulated for years that viruses and mycoplasma work in concert. These viruses and intracellular bacteria both reside inside the cell, working in different areas as described above. They are both part of our adaptive system, reacting to toxins, lectins, and other challenges. It’s cool to see that there is something alive inside the cell reacting to challenges being made to that cell (not that DNA and RNA are not “alive”). Could it be that viruses are the main adaptive force and bacteria take it to a whole new level when things get really serious??? That’s kind of what happens in the gastrointestinal tract, isn’t it?

 

It is clear that we lose the battle mainly when our immune system takes a nose dive. We spend our lives before then being benefitted by the constant action of these guys (except for the ones that have been altered by man), who serve to signal the immune system that we have done something wrong, bringing on a variety of signs and symptoms. A healthy immune system is the governor and keeps these "helpers" from getting too powerful. They need a foreman. But, when the immune system crashes and we continue to insult these guys (kick their ant bed), these guys run rampant, including carrying their proclamations to distant locations (metastasis, scleroderma, “rheumatoid arthritis of the lungs”, sarcoidosis). We lose our grip on them and they take over, all in the name of their own survival. They never wanted to hurt us. They were simply reacting to what we were doing to them. In fact, they’re running scared. But make no mistake: They have no conscience and they will do what it takes to survive, even if it means killing the host. And when that occurs, these viruses and bacteria don’t know they are committing suicide. But we should.

 

Lemme know what you think,

I hope you enjoyed your time here and got something important from your stay. It is my goal to help all of mankind navigate through the jungle of medical information now available on the Internet and find the truth about the origins of what we call "disease" as well as discover the natural solutions for these conditions.
 
We do have our health's destiny in our own hands more than we've ever imagined, certainly more than most have ever been told. Think naturally and the answer will come.

Become a member of the Friends of DogtorJ Email Club !

You can now go to the new site!
 
The New DogtorJ.com is done! Yes, the time has finally come for this homemade Website to go the way of the buffalo. I know that you all join me in looking forward to using a site that is better organized and more accessible....prettier, too! I've even corrected most of those annoying typos (I hope).

Feel free to check it out now at www.dogtorj.com. I am still working hard to populate all of the pages so don't worry if a link does not work. They should all be active in the near future. In the meantime, this current site will remain on-line until I get all of the bugs worked out.

Let me know what you think! It's not too late to make some changes.

would still like to hear from you personally, though.
 
I used to have a nice little form in this space that would allow readers to send me a quick comment or testimonial. Unfortunately, as the Interent goes, I started getting 50-100 junk emails through this form and had to remove it. 
 
So, until the new Website is up and running (soon!), I will have to ask people to formulate an Email of their own and send it. I do want to hear from you so I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to do this.
 
Simply title your Email "Visitor Comment" and include your name, occupationcomment/testimonial and return Email address (if you want to be contacted) and send it to:
 
dogtorj @ dogtorj.com (Just remove the spaces on each side of the @ sign) 
 
Please do not use this form to ask medical questions. See the Contact section for instructions for sending DogtorJ an Email inquiry concerning a medical condition.

Great News!
 
DogtorJ.com will be getting a major facelift in the very near future. Yes, the time has finally come for this homemade Website to be taken over by someone who actually knows what they are doing. I know that you all join me in looking forward to having the site better organized and more accessible. It'll be prettier, too!
 
This is taking place for a number of reasons, the most of important of which will be revealed in the upcoming months. Yes, the book is finally in the works but there will be a major awareness project to go along with it.
 
So, please stay tuned. Anyone who would like to get on my mailing list can do so by simply using the visitor's comment area (like the one above) found at the bottom of each page.
 
Onward and upward!
