Dr Oz: You Don’t Have Cancer Or Everyone Has Cancer

Many of us think that since we eat healthy, exercise, get 8 hours of sleep, don’t smoke, don’t drink and only buy organic food that there is no way we have cancer cells growing inside of us… right?  Wrong!  Dr William Li said that the truth is that we all have microscopic cancers growing inside of us all the time.  Cells are always dividing and you just need one cell to make a mistake and mutate.  Most abnormal cells do not become cancer though, because our body cleans everything with our immune system.  But the bottom line is that everyone has a cancer cell in them right now.

    Why do you do a show on Lupus. The deadliest kind that attacks the vital organs ?

    To be fair, call it cancer myth or misunderstanding may be more proper than cancer lies as whoever tells a lie is that he knows it is wrong but tells it anyway. I don’t think that is the case iwth cancer. Those who say cancers are not contagious probably genuinely believe so.

    Also, there is a difference between tumor and cancer. Not every tumor is cancerous — it only becomes cancerous when it acquires the ability to be metastasized or spread around. So, a single cell that acquires mutations may be at best tumorous not cancerous. So, we can for sure say everybody has tumor cells in them but not necessarily cancer cells. Just based on my knowledge.
