How Liquid - Stabilized Oxygen Can Fight Against Cancer

Some folks believe that liquid-stabilized oxygen can help fight cancer. Sadly, there is not one bit of empirical study that is purposely designed to weed out all extraneous factors to really point out, once and for all, the inescapable relationship between the use of liquid-stabilized oxygen and the removal of cancer cells.

A Look at Cancer Formation
Cancer develops over time. It usually takes several years to a few decades even before you start manifesting some of the classic signs and symptoms of cancer. The point is that all cancer starts with cellular injury or damage to a single cell.

Normally, when a cell is damaged, the body is able to repair it. Unfortunately, with repeated injuries the cell will undergo some structural changes to help protect itself from further injuries. When it gets injured, it tries to change itself in some way. In some cases cells increase in size in a process called hypertrophy. In other cases, the number of cells also increases resulting in hyperplasia. These cellular changes occur in response to the injury to cell. Increasing the size or the number of cells can help protect the region from further injuries.

Unfortunately, with each change some of the DNA material from one cell to the daughter cells can be altered. When this happens you now have dysplasia or an abnormal cell that is vastly different from the original cell. This dysplastic cell contains a gene that carries the abnormality. The immune system will try to ‘kill’ this abnormal cell so that it will not continue producing dysfunctional daughter cells.

Regrettably, cells do adapt. Dysfunctional cells begin producing an entirely different cell in a process called neoplasia. This is now the beginning of a cancerous cell. Normally, again immune system cells can target these neoplastic cells. Sadly they do proliferate at a much higher rate than the immune system is able to manage. With time the neoplastic cells begin to spread, crowding out normal cells, and mutating into more resistant cells. By the time you recognize that you have a tumor, you may already be in Stage II or even Stage III of your cancer.

So where does oxygen come into play? All cells require oxygen for their metabolic processes. If cells receive insufficient levels of oxygen, cellular hypoxia can occur. This is the simplest form of cellular injury – an injury caused by reduced levels of oxygen to the cells. Because of hypoxic cellular injury the cells will attempt to transform itself in an effort to ‘live’ through the reduced levels of oxygen. And as we have already pointed out above, cancer always start with a change in a single cell.

Liquid-Stabilized Oxygen and Cancer
The belief that liquid-stabilized oxygen can help fight cancer is based in a 1931 study by Nobel Prize-recipient Otto Warburg who stated that cancer cells use non—oxygen processes to survive. Thus, they say that using liquid oxygen can help kill cancer cells. What they don’t understand about the pathophysiology of cancer is that cancer cells have been morphologically developed to be resistant to all types of environment. The American Cancer Society disputes these claims since cancer thrives a lot better in environments that are rich in oxygen. Also, the core of the tumor in cancer is poorly supplied with blood vessels, making oxygen delivery mute. Moreover, the human body requires up to 250 mL of oxygen every minute. Even if you supplement this with liquid-stabilized oxygen, it is doubtful if it will ever make a difference. Above all, there are no empirical evidences to support the claims of such liquid-stabilized oxygen.

If you’re talking about cancer prevention, oxygen can be a great way to prevent hypoxia in cells. But if you’re looking to treat cancer with liquid-stabilized oxygen, there would be less cancer patients today if it were true, wouldn’t it?
