Quranic Verse No. 8 of Surat Al-Jumu’ah Leads Us to Describe Cancer and Determine its True Cause (Part-II)
Abstract: Cancer is cell fleeing from death by blocking the intrinsic and extrinsic programs of cell death. The six elements that shut down those programs are: muc-1, muc-4, muc-16, Bcl-2, MMPs and decoy R3. The nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-Kb) stimulates the expression of genes responsible for the production of those elements, which are used by cells to block those two programs. In other words, the nuclear factor kappa B (NF-KB) is responsible for blocking both programs. Therefore, the nuclear factor kappa B (NF-Kb) is the true cause of cancer.
