    Mitochondrial DNA energy mutation could be the key , to solving the essence of cancer , all cancers .

    As would bee venom if we can find a properly targeted delivery system. Perhaps CRISPR might apply also.

    You may want to watch the NOVA presentation of "How to make things smaller".


    Bee venom is a highly effective destroyer of cancerous cells. Unfortunately it is not selective what cells to destroy. Thus science is currently working on a nano torpedo which is able to select cancerous cells (which have a specific chemical signature) from healthy cells. The smaller the cancer the less of these torpedoes would be needed.

    Perhaps

    But the real problem is the malfunction of the mitochondra .

    Mitochondra gives engergy to the Nucleus of the cell , the RNA , if the communication between the two is distorted , then the replication of cell is mutated , hence then cancer .

    Very interesting. You may well be right.
