He suggests in his article that we may eventually accept bacterial causes for cancer since the medical world has also before misdiagnosed some bacterial diseases:
Note: cancer is a form of tumor that can infiltrate other tissues, also known as malignant. Lipomas are defined as benign and rarely infiltrate other tissues. But cancers are still tumors as are lipomas. We can learn a lot from studies that research cancers eventhough lipomas aren't cancer....when a new and deadly lung disease broke out among legionnaires in Philadelphia in July 1976, two hundred twenty-two people became ill and thirty-four died. The cause of the lung disease remained a medical mystery for over five months. Bacterial infection was ruled out when all tests were reported as negative. Fortunately, one astute and careful microbiologist finally discovered bacteria. Joe McDade at the Leprosy Branch of the CDC, was able to detect “unusual bacteria” in guinea pigs experimentally infected with lung tissue from the dead legionnaires. Further modification of bacterial culture methods finally allowed the isolation of causative bacteria, now known as Legionella pneumophila.
He speaks also about the pleomorphic form of some bacteria. This means that bacteria may have virus like and fungus-like, as well as mycoplasma-like phase. Mycoplasma-like bacteria lack of the cell wall and are consired as a special case of bacteria.
The article is very interesting and I suggest everyone to read it.
I then wondered whether he knows anything about benign tumors and possible link to bacteria. So I emailed him.
And he replied:
I never studied lipomas for bacteria.....although I found bacteria in inflammations of the fatty portion of the skin (panniculitis). Also there is some evidence that similar bacteria are found in "benign" diseases.
I honestly can't answer your question, but it wouldn't surprise me if bacteria were eventually found in connection with fat tumors. (emphasis added by Matt) I also think these bacteria, which we all carry, are implicated in many forms of disease.......perhaps one's genetic makeup determines how these bacteria eventually influence the cancerous and non-cancerous diseases that plague us all eventually.
We have much to learn.
Thanks for your interest.
