Beware of Common Viruses: Surprising Data Shows Link to Many Cancers; CBCD Reviews Studies

Industry: Health & Fitness

Studies show that common viruses are the second most important cause of cancer. The CBCD explains the link between.

New York (PRUnderground) June 20th, 2014

It may surprise you to learn that science has recently started to accept the fact that most cancers are linked to viruses. In fact, this may surprise even some doctors. But these ideas are actually not that new. In 2003, Dr. Hanan Polansky presented these ground breaking thoughts in his highly acclaimed book, “Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease.” Many scientists at the time ignored these concepts. A new study conducted by Dr. Dey and his team highlights Dr. Polansky’s original concepts and brings them to public discussion. For example, Dr. Dey and his colleagues wrote that “Epidemiological data imply that viruses are the second most important risk factor for cancer.” (1)

Although Dr. Polansky’s work was published more than 10 years ago, his theory identified latent viruses as the “origin of many chronic diseases, such as cancer, atherosclerosis, stroke, obesity, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, lupus, thyroiditis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and alopecia.” (2) Specifically, Dr. Polansky’s work explains how foreign DNA fragments, created by latent viruses, can cause these, and many other major diseases. The book has been read by more than 5,000 scientists around the world, and has been reviewed in more than 20 leading scientific journals.

Dr. Dey and his colleagues further wrote that “Although the ability of certain viruses (hepatitis B and C, human papillomavirus, etc) to cause cancer has been time tested and proven scientifically, there are several other potential viral candidates whose role in oncogenesis (development of cancer) is more controversial.” (1) These candidates are listed in Dr. Polansky’s book. They include the herpesvirus family of viruses (HSV-1, HSV-2, EBV, CMV, VZV, HHV-6, HHV-7 etc.), and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) (2). Dr. Polansky’s book also explains why these viruses, and not others, cause cancer.

Dr. Polansky’s theory, discusses how these latent viruses that include foreign DNA fragments called N-boxes, are causing most major diseases. For example, “The theory describes the effect of Foreign DNA fragments that include the cis-regulatory element, called an N-box, on transcription of cellular genes. Consider foreign N-boxes that entered the body naturally, through, for instance, an infection or digestion, or artificially, through, for instance, an injection of some treatment. The foreign N-boxes attract the transcription complex GABP∙p300. Since the complex is a scarce genetic resource, the foreign N-boxes decrease the availability of this complex to cellular genes.” (2)

What is the result of Microcompetition?

The genes that are transactivated by the GABP∙p300 complex produce fewer proteins, and the genes that are suppressed by this complex produce more proteins. The abnormal levels of these cellular proteins cause a disease. It is interesting that many common viruses that establish a latent infection have strong N-boxes in their promoter/enhancer. They include the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Herpes Simplex virus (HSV), Varicella Zoster virus (VZV), Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), and the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). In fact, the CMV has the strongest promoter/enhancer known to science. Liu et al. showed that the CMV promoter/enhancer, which includes the N-box, is more than 150-fold stronger than the promoter of the platelet-derived growth factor-b chain (PDGF-b) gene.” (See Pharmacology & Pharmacy, from March 2014) (3). The Microcompetition theory predicts that a latent infection with CMV will cause a decrease in PDGF-b transcription, a decrease in the concentration of the PDGF-b protein, and disease.

For a better understanding of latent viruses and their impact on chronic disease processes, including cancer, the CBCD encourages government officials, healthcare managers, physicians, virologists, biologists, geneticists, and scientists to obtain a copy of Dr. Hanan Polansky’s book and read it. A free copy of the book can be downloaded from the CBCD website here:

Dr. Polansky’s book received high praise from leading scientists. For example, Dr. Sivasubramanian Baskar, PhD of the United States National Cancer Institute (NIH) said “I wish to congratulate Dr. Hanan Polansky for his scientific bravery to take such a unique, novel approach to further stimulate our understanding of the origin and establishment of chronic diseases. The philosophy underscored is an excellent one … The amazing correlation between theoretical predictions and observed in vivo effects seem to bring us a step closer to a deeper understanding of such complex biologic processes.” (See the CBCD, from 2008) (4). More than fifty additional reviews recommending the book can be found here:

The CBCD endorses Dr. Polansky’s theory and believes that individuals can benefit from helping the immune system to target latent viruses. They can do so by taking Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin.
