“CANCER Theories: Chronic irritation: Virchow proposed that chronic irritation was the cause of cancer, but he falsely believed that cancers “spread like a liquid.” A German surgeon, Karl Thiersch, showed that cancers metastasize through the spread of malignant cells and not through some unidentified fluid.
Trauma: Despite advances in the understanding of cancer, from the late 1800s until the 1920s, cancer was thought by some to be caused by trauma. This belief was maintained despite the failure to cause cancer in experimental animals by injury.
Parasite theory: In the 17th and 18th centuries, some believed that cancer was contagious. In fact, the first cancer hospital in France was forced to move from the city in 1779 because of the fear of the spread of cancer throughout the city.
A Nobel Prize was wrongly awarded in 1926 for scientific research documenting stomach cancer being caused by a certain worm. Scientists were unable to confirm this research, so they lost interest in the parasite theory.”
Science hey? I would say there is a ‘certain worm’ causing a cancer in the scientific community…advocacy science for profit and power.
