Ischemia and Hypoxia as Primary Cause of Cancer


There is no doubt that cancer is caused by progressive ischemia and hypoxia of long time. Both because of atherosclerosis and associated to anatomical variants of the arteries in the affected zone. In this way these hypoxic regions the cellular metabolism is altered; where the final electrons acceptor is not oxygen but a generally inorganic molecule. In contrast, vascular recanalization through aspirin can increase blood flow (greater nutrient intake, oxygen and exogenous anti-oxidants) in ischemic areas and thus, prevent the development of cancerous cells. For these reasons, we must fight against the development of atherosclerosis and avoid exposure to environmental pollutants.
