Why do people get cancer?
Cancer cells have an altered metabolism. Otto Warburg identified the altered metabolism of cancer cells back in 1931 and received a Nobel Prize for his work. With this understanding we can improve the outcome in cancer patients even better and prevention is possible. Warburg pointed out that cancer cells can’t produce energy in the normal way and this results in having their cell membranes having low voltage. A healthy cell has a resting membrane voltage of about 70 millivolts. A cancer cell has a resting membrane potential of only around 30 millivolts. Because of the low voltage the cell can’t pull in potassium and push out sodium and this leads to an acid build up in cells. When this occurs, oxygen does not enter the cell in enough quantity and so the cell does not use oxygen to create energy.
When cancer cells lack oxygen they switch to fermentative metabolism. This means low energy (ATP) levels inside of cells...
