Mark, often referred to as a visionary researcher, embarked on a transformative journey culminating in a revolutionary new model of cancer. Mark unveils a formidable body of evidence that challenges prevailing beliefs and exposes an overlooked thread of consistency within the intricate tapestry of the disease. He convincingly demonstrates that certain pathogens possess the capacity not only to trigger cancer, but also to actively propel its progression through a suppressive mechanism of control.
This paradigm-shifting cancer model, now referred to as the Cell Suppression Theory of cancer, supported by a formidable array of over 800 references. Mark unfurls the overlooked mechanisms by which micro-organisms appear to orchestrate the onset of cancer. Mark's research serves as a testament to the power of human perseverance and scientific ingenuity, offering a compelling invitation to embark on a profound journey into the intricate world of cancer.
