4) THE CANCELL CONTROVERSY by Louise B. Trull.

The CanCell Controversy

Normal cells utilize oxygen to metabolize food, convert it to energy and release carbon dioxide as a waste product. If cells cannot get enough oxygen, they switch to the anaerobic cycle, which changes simple sugars into ketones and aldehydes. These substances, found in paint thinners and spot removers, are toxic to cells. Exposure to these toxic substances can make normal cells mutate into cancer cells. Cancer cells are parasitic; that is, they depend on energy production of healthy cells for their existence. By lowering energy levels of healthy cells slightly, CanCell makes cancer cells die, or lyse into a serous fluid which is then reabsorbed and eliminated from the body. Louise Trull's life was saved by Cancell. She created this remarkable book about CanCell: how it was developed, the struggles its developers went through, the theory of how it works, case histories, documented test results, etc. 175 pages, $17.95.
