Re: Why We Should Study Cancer Like the Ecosystem
I agree the comparation of the eco enviroment and the microenviroment and macoenviroment between trees and cancer cells.
Yes, it seems there are no relationship between them at all; But deep down it is not that much in difference between the western medicine and the practice of the Chinese herbal medicine. ( using organ systems approach to treat single disease first then specialists are used for each additional problem ; as compare to treat the body as a whole first then each problem at the same time.)
New effort in research by the big Pharma and NIH have been toward the immunology (IE: develop anti-PL1 antibodies to unlock the vase amount of immune T cells in our bodies hold up by the PL-1 ligands on the surface of the cancer; by treating cancer in this way, it is natural since the T cells are part of our own cells ,with help of the anti-PL1 imunotherapy, it may come close to treating the cancer with the approach of using the concept of the eco enviroment applying to trees and the Chinese concept of treating the body as a whole for disease without the major side effects and better treatment results. Let see whether this development will be the cure we all are looking for.
