Cantron is not only anti-cancer, it is also strongly anti-viral and one of the most powerful antioxidant ever tested.
Cancell like product Cantron and Protocel, are safe alternative cancer treatments which have successfully treated people and animals for a wide array of diseases for more than thirty years without dangerous side effects.
On this web page, you may see "Cancell" used interchangeably with "Cantron" in places where both Cantron and Protocel are discussed. Cantron and Protocel:
Are produced by different companies.
Have the same ingredients with slightly different ratios of those ingredients.

Other Diseases, AIDS, Viruses...
Cantron has been effective against viruses including AIDS, Herpes (see below), Chronic Fatigue syndrome, lupus, endimetriosis, Crohn's disease, fibromyalgia, almost all auto-immune disease, and has some success treating: ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Leukemia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Scleroderma.
When Cantron is given to an AIDS patient, it breaks down the cell that the virus has invaded. At that point, the virus loses its protection allowing the immune system to attack the virus. This results in an initial increase in viral count. There are not actually more viruses, they are just more detectable due to the removal of the protective layer.
Cantron has demonstrated strong anti-viral abilities against most viruses including colds and flu. It can be exceptionally helpful for people like myself who take a long time to get rid of these common illnesses. My usual run with a cold is two weeks and some flues have persisted for six weeks. Now that I use Cantron, neither of these conditions remain for more than three days and my symptoms are reduced by about 70% soon after taking my first dose.
The book the Cancell Controversy by Louise Trull reports that 15 cases of herpes were treated with Cancell by physicians with positive cures in every case within 3 to 6 days. However, extensive follow ups were not performed. It is more likely that Cantron simple reduces the length of episodes. However, there is some chance that a long course of treatment, about four months, may make it very difficult for the virus to launch another episodes or can greatly reduce the frequency of episodes.
Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure
Some people who have taken Cantron for cancer also had high blood pressure and clogged arteries. Since the cancer was more of a threat, these people ignored their heart conditions to concentrate on their cancer. After Cantron had corrected their cancer, they were surprised to learn that their blood pressure had gone back to normal. Some of these people had angiograms performed and found that the plaque in their arteries had been dissolved. For this reason the Cantron manufacturers recently (March 2003) performed tests on Cantron to determine its antioxidant abilities. The results of the tests indicated that Cantron is the most powerful antioxidant available. It is many times more powerful than any other antioxidant. For this reason Cantron is a life saver for people with high blood pressure because the current high blood pressure medication has a terrible list of side affects.
The first Cancell-like formula was called Entelev and was developed by a chemist, James Sheridan of Roseville, Michigan. Currently, there are two Cancell-like products Cantron and Protocel manufactured by different companies. When a statement applies to both Cantron and Protocel, we simply write Cancell. Although Sheridan was a researcher at the Michigan Cancer Center, Sheridan was not a medical doctor. This may be one of the reasons the medical profession has offered so much resistance to Cancell. There is even a name for this resistance: professorial blockade. Another reason for this resistance may be due to the fact that Cancell is not only anticancer it is also antiviral. The medical profession may feel that something like this is simply too good to be true especially since the lack of side effects mean that people will be able to buy it without going to a doctor for a prescription.
Since his original formula the following names have been used: Sheridan's Formula, Jim's Juice, Crocinic Acid, JS-114, JS-101, 126-F, Entelev, Cancell, Cantron, and Protocel.
Sheridan theorized the possibility of chemically controlling the energy needed by the cells of our body to cause energy-low cancer cells to revert to a state where the body can eliminate them as foreign matter. The theory postulates that cancer cells are too low in energy to proceed with their normal development. Cancer cells stop their development just short of differentiating into a normal liver, lung, brain ... cell. Sheridan proposed to push cancer cells backward in their development instead of try to encourage them to differentiate as many cancer treatments attempt.
Sheridan believed he had found a method of controlling the energy available to cells in the early 1930s after witnessing a chemical reaction called rhythmic banding in an analytical chemistry laboratory at Carnegie Tech and reading the Debye Theory, published in 1927 which explores the effects of changing the dielectric constant on reactions of positive and negative ions suggested the means to accomplish this energy reduction.
About 1950, Sheridan was invited to join the staff of the Detroit Institute of Cancer Research. There he performed the required chemical work on the project and the institute experts performed the animal tests. In late 1953, the institute director concluded that Entelev was ready for a clinical program. A committee was formed consisting of the Dean of Medicine at Wayne University, three oncologists from area hospitals, and the director. The committee spent several days interviewing the experts who were running the tests, reviewed the test results and concluded that the material was ready for a clinical program. The director of the Detroit Institute of Cancer Research informed the American Cancer Society about the product. A meeting was requested to take place in New York City. The director and the Dean attended the meeting. They returned and reported that the American Cancer Society did not approve the test because Mr. Sheridan did not prove that he owned the idea. Sheridan was later fired.
Since Sheridan had worked on his idea for many years, it would be fairly easy to show that the idea was his, but Sheridan was fired. Why he was fired is not a mystery if you know how diabolical the pharmaceutical companies are. During the Nuremberg war crimes trials, executives of German pharmaceutical companies were the only civilians who received prison sentences. The descendent companies now operate world wide and receive great respect from the uninformed. An example of such a company is none other than Bayer the aspirin giant that many people think is an American company. Bayer is responsible for introducing the pesticide Clothianidin**, trade named: Poncho 600. Bayer is so powerful it has been able to keep this information out of mainstream media so most people believe that the bee die-off is still a mystery. Pharmaceutical companies like Bayer easily control medical research by giving or withholding grants for research. Moss's book The Cancer Industry is full of such dirty dealing.
Ready for People
Based on the animal testing, Sheridan knew that Entelev was non-toxic and started giving it to friends who were at the “end of the line.” Word spread of the effects it had on these people and Sheridan started receiving requests from all over the country. Unable to refuse to give people a chance for life, he began distributing it for free to anyone who asked for it. In May of 1983, the FDA placed an illegal cease and desist order against the distribution of Entelev. When Sheridan attempted to appeal the original court decision, the court claimed to have lost the transcript. A transcript must accompany any appeal application. Appeal applications must be filed within 60 days of the original court decision. The transcript was located just after the 60 days.
The FDA Blockade
With their own money Sheridan and Sopcak continued to seek FDA approval. The FDA required toxicity testing. Sheridan decided to pay for this testing because they couldn’t get help from the drug company influenced cancer agencies. Sheridan found what he considered the best laboratory in the country in New Mexico. The cost of the toxicity test was originally $5,000. After they got the material, they called Sheridan and said it would cost $7,000. Sheridan still agreed. The cost went to $15,000. Still Sheridan agreed. Then the lab called and said for some reason or other they were unable to do it.
Sheridan drove to the lab and said he would like to have a toxicity test run. They said they could have it done within a week. After hearing that the material was Entelev, everything changed. They absolutely couldn't get around to doing it. This treatment continued for years. Some people would say that the $700 billion a year Chemo industry has something to do with this blockade. Sheridan has now passed on. Some people feel that the remaining family continues his efforts, but protection of copyrights seems to be their major concern.
Cantron Steps Up
In early 1983, Don Wilson, school teacher, author, and lecturer began working on a book about Entelev. As a result he was in regular contact with Sheridan. In May of 1983, Wilson contacted Jerome Godin, President of Medical Research Products and informed him that Sheridan had provided him with the entire manufacturing procedure for Entelev in order to preserve it for the world in case anything were to happen to them (Sheridan and Wilson were both elderly at this time). Wilson had met Godin a couple of years earlier when they worked together on an anti-aging symposium.
According to Godin, it was around August of 1983, that Wilson recommended Godin to Sheridan as someone who would find a legal way to produce and distribute Entelev. This recommendation was based on Godin's successful marketing of other innovative health care products. This recommendation turned out to be fruitful. Entelev was renamed to Cantron and distribution was started with a price of $170 for 32 ounces, about a four months supply. The price remained for 18 years until March of 2002 when it was increased to $190. Cantron continues to be available through Godin's company to this day.
In July '84 another man Ed Sopcak came on the scene and started working with Sheridan and Godin. It was Sopcak who coined the name Cancell and it was Sopcak's charismatic personality was instrumental in getting Cancell into the national spotlight.

The Formulation Change / Name Confusion / Reputation DestructionBlood Brain Barrier
Ed Sopcak worked with James Sheridan, the developer, by distributing Entelev (the original name for Cancell) under the name Cancell between 1984 and 1992. Sopcak's efforts and connections greatly increased public awareness of Cancell. For this reason the term Cancell is used most often when referring to Entelev. Around 1992 Sopcak changed the formulation completely. Sopcak’s new formula resembled a homeopathic product. He stated that it was distilled water “programmed vibrationally.” At this point Sopcak should have changed the name of the product he was manufacturing, but he continued to call it Cancell because he felt that both formulas worked the same way even though they were chemically as different as night and day. Entelev was a dark liquid. Sopcak's new formula was completely clear and contained none of the chemicals that Sheridan had specified. Eventually, Sopcak did change the name of his formula to Quantrol, but the damage to Cancell's reputation continued. This web page uses the term Cancell to refer to the dark formula.
Not long after the formulation change, Quantrol/Cancell received a lot of media attention. Sopcak promoted Quantrol on TV and in articles often referring to it as Cancell and created tremendous confusion. Suddenly, after distributing Cancell for eight years Sopcak was taken to court by the FDA creating more publicity for his "water" and making Cancell seem like a joke. With the wrong formula receiving this negative attention, Cancell's reputation was dealt a devastating blow.
Sopcak Gets Stopped but Distribution Continues
The courts stopped Sopcak from distributing either formula, but Jerome Godin's company, Medical Research Products was able to continue to distribute under the name Cantron. This was due to Godin's knowledge of federal regulations in the marketing of supplements.
In the spring of 2000 the Sheridan family under the name of Sheridan's son decided to start manufacturing Entelev and called it Protocel. So now there are two manufacturers. Both products have the same ingredients which are the same as Entelev although there is a slight difference in the quantity of the ingredients. Laboratory analysis have shown that Cantron has more antioxidant effect and may be the more effective of the two products.
In 2000 a product called Radic appeared on the market. It seems that Radic is Protocel purchased from one source or other, placed in a different bottle and marked up 400%.
Cantron is one of the few alternative cancer treatments that can pass the blood/brain barrier. The other alternative cancer treatments that can cross this barrier are Protocel and Paw Paw.
Although the ratio of ingredients of Cancell-like products has changed slightly over the years, the ingredients listed on the labels of Cantron and Protocel are: tetrahydroxyquinone, rhodizonic acid, sodium, potassium, croconic acid, catechol (or pyrocatechol), triquinoyl, leuconic acid, inositol, and copper. The Protocel label also lists "mineral and trace elements" which are at a level of no consequence
The developer, James Sheridan felt that his formula was 50% effective (higher for brain tumors). The effectiveness was determined to be a bit lower for children. This seems to be related to the higher level of growth common in the cells of children.
It has been reported that Cantron is as effective on benign tumors as it is on cancerous tumors.
Cancers That Respond Poorly to Cantron
Cantron seems to be effect against all types of cancer and benign tumors, however, it does not perform well against the following:
Different people respond at different speeds to Cantron. Some cancer sufferers notice response in a week and virus symptoms can go away in one day. However, it can take as much as three months or more for some cancer sufferers to notice improvement especially for Lymphomas. The lymph system has a very slow circulation rate. This slows down the action of Cantron. In the words of James Sheridan, "it takes time to work... 7 to 9 weeks is typical and some cases take up to 3 months or more to see a response."
Some people have a lot of heavy metals in their system. Cantron will attach to this metal and remove it. This can prevent Cantron from making obvious improvement for months, perhaps as much as six months. However, if Cantron is working, there should not be any increase in the progress of the cancer.
One of the reasons for Cantron's apparent slow action is due to the time it takes a person's system to convert the tumors to waste matter and longer to recover from the damage the tumor produced. Often the waste matter around a tumor is misread by a doctor as tumor growth and a person stops taking Cantron before it is finished working. This tragedy is difficult to prevent.
How to Tell if Cantron is Working
When malignant cells go past the primitive state, they lyse or self-digest. When the malignant cells, self-digest, they change from cancer to waste material, composed of two amino acids that have the appearance of raw egg whites, which are mostly excreted through normal body waste disposal or in the case of lung cancer, this material is coughed up. Bubbly urine is also a sign of lysing.
Tumor markers can raise for three to four months after taking Cantron. This does not mean that Cantron is not working.
Order Test Kit
No studies on Cantron have been published in standard scientific journals, and no clinical trials (research studies with people) of Cantron have been done. The only case history type documentation available this on the Cancell Effectiveness Study* page.
The National Cancer Institute has studied Cancell in the laboratory. For the results of their study and a critical analysis of those results see the Comments on the NCI Testing of Cancell page presented on this web site.
No scientific peer reviewed papers have been written on Cantron. However, an antioxidant test was performed in 2003. See the next subsection for details.
Conclusiveness of Papers
No scientific peer reviewed papers have been written on Cantron. However, an antioxidant test was performed in 2003 verified the tremendous antioxidant ability of Cantron. The results of two independent laboratories are in: Cantron is by far the most powerful antioxidants thus far tested. It is:
- Over 25 times more powerful than the previous best antioxidant against peroxyl radicals.
- Over 45 times more powerful than the previous best antioxidant against hydroxyl radicals.
These are the two most destructive and difficult to defeat free radicals. This makes Cantron (and Protocel) the only antioxidant that eliminates both of the most dangerous free radicals. Cantron also blocked the formation of all superoxide radicals in the test system. For a table comparing Cantron against the previously best antioxidants, go to the Super Antioxidants Cantron and Protocel page.
Cantron can be taken without any additional supplements and still be effective. However, the addition of the following supplements are recommended by one or other of the manufacturers to support the action of Cantron:
- Willard’s Water (to increased absorption of supplements) No link, or Magnetic Water
Cantron and Paw Paw
You can take Protocel with Paw Paw, but don't forget to read all the Paw Paw protocols besides these. Some people respond very quickly to Cantron or Protocel. In this case the body may have excessive waste material to remove. Paw Paw can increase the response of your body and overload the waste removal system. To present this overload, some people start Paw Paw 3 to 5 weeks after starting Cantron or Protocel. Recommended dose for Paw Paw is 1 capsule four times a day at the same time as Protocel or Cantron. Since the recommended dose for Cantron or Protocel is six times a day, you would skip taking Paw Paw for two of the Cantron or Protocel doses.
Since Paw Paw is fat soluble it will work better after a person has started eating for the day. Therefore, some users start taking Paw Paw with the second dose of Cantron.
Dosage and Ease of Use
Cantron is not all that easy to use for these reasons:
Cantron is a liquid and must be shaken and dispensed immediately. Many people do not get a good dose of Cantron because it settles so quickly.
You must take a dose every four hours, consistently (you can skip one dose when sleeping.
Some people cannot stand the taste, although I think it tastes OK.
There are supplements and treatments that cannot be taken while taking Cantron, see Compatibility.
People who change their eating habits greatly increase the effectiveness of the supplements they take. Consider reading the "General Diet*" subsection of the Home page.
Before ordering, consider how hard it may be for you or the patient to take Cantron. A quarter teaspoon of the strong tasting Cantron liquid must be taken at regular intervals. Do not eat for 15 minutes before or after taking Cantron. The dose schedule is a quarter teaspoon every 4 hours. If you want to sleep eight hours straight, you can double the dose you take right before bed and skip the middle-of-the-night dose. This means that you will take Cantron five times a day with the last dose being one half teaspoon.
Actually, the more often you take Cantron the better. However, the dosage size should be reduced. For example. taking Cantron every two hours only requires a dosage size of an 1/8 of a teaspoon.
Rectal Administration Option
If oral administration is not possible, some people are administered Cantron rectally. They use a plastic eye dropper and the same quarter of a teaspoon dose. They insert the dropper just past the rectal muscle and dispense the Protocel. They recommend avoiding bowel movements for at least 20 minutes.
Critical CAT Scan Information
As Cantron works and tumors start to break down, they can appear to get larger. CAT scans sometimes can't distinguish between growing tumors and tumors that are breaking down, but a PET scan** can verify the breakdown of tumors.
If you interrupt doses of Cantron, it allows the cancer or viral cells to have a meal. When you are trying to starve these cells, allowing them to have a meal is a significant step backward. This "meal" could allow the cells, which have not starved to death, to completely recover.
There is no evidence that suggests that stopping Cantron will increase tumor growth rate. This is especially true during the beginning time before Cantron starts to work. After Cantron starts to work on cancer cells, growth should stop. If a person stops taking Cantron at that point, the growth would most likely start again at the previous rate.
Some people want to continue Cantron after remission. I know of one person who continues to take Cantron five years after his remission; no side effects have been observed. However, if you reduce the dosage size or schedule of Cantron. Cantron WILL NOT WORK as a tumor treatment. However, Cantron is a very powerful antioxidant and can be taken once or twice a day for its antioxidant benefit. Antioxidants are well recognized cancer fighters.
Side Effects and Toxicity
Cantron does not seem to have any side effect except that initially a person may feel tired. On average tiredness lasts 2 1/2 weeks, but some patients report that it lasts longer. This is an indication that Cantron is working. Some people who are having digestion problems may not be able to keep Cantron down. Using simple food combining can reduce digestion problems; do not eat starch with meat, and do not eat fruit with other foods. Another solution is to switch to rectal administration which is explained with the other dosage information.
One woman mistakenly drank an entire bottle of Cantron and only experienced diarrhea the next day. She discovered her mistake and started taking the correct dosage. She is now cured of cancer.
Due to the many changes a woman’s body goes through during pregnancy, Cantron is not recommended during pregnancy just to be on the safe side.
The Toxicity Testing Procedure
Although Sheridan was unable to get a lab to perform a toxicity test on Entelev, one interested group succeeded in getting the test performed by changing the name. This group fears reprisals from the FDA and have requested that I not include the cover-name they used and the date of the test. However, I received permission to publish the results of the test.
Toxicity tests establish the level of a compound at which half the test mice die. The level is expressed in terms of milligrams per kilogram of the animal’s body weight. For example, the toxicity of aspirin is 390mg/kilo; if each mouse weighed a kilogram half of them would die if they were each given 390 mg. The test procedure for new compounds is to slowly increase the level of the compound until half the mice die.
The test lab started the test in the normal way (see above paragraph) and eventually tested levels of hundreds of milligrams per kilo of body weight and no mice died. When the lab got to a level of 5000mg/kilo of body weight they stopped the gradual increments because no mice had yet died. They jumped the level to 11,000 mg per kilo of body weight and finally 70% of the mice died. This level is the equivalent of a 150 pound man taking 700, 1000 mg (“horse”) pills.
Cantron is a delicate treatment whose effect can be stopped by a number of substances. Before continuing with the ordering information, decide if you are willing to avoid taking all of the substances listed below that interfere with Cantron.
Foods to Avoid
Reducing your intake of refined sugar had been known to aid the effects of Cantron. Steva is much better much better. See the sweeteners list on the Diets for Cancer page.
Vitamins to Avoid
High concentrations of the following substances have been known to interfere with Cantron (naturally occurring quantities in food has not caused any problems):
- Vitamin C (taking vitamin C is the number one reason that Cantron fails to work)
- "Sea Greens" such as spirulina, algae, plankton, chlorella, kelp
The following counter the effects of Cantron:
- Essiac tea and Flor-Essence (which is similar to Essiac with a couple of extra ingredients)
- Ozone treatments ( oxygen treatments such as hyperbaric oxygen are beneficial to the functioning of Protocel)
- Flax seed oil as used in the Budwig diet (also spelled flaxseed oil). It is starting to appear that flax seed oil may be compatible, but it remains on this list as a precaution
- IP6 (in theory there may be a problem, but case histories are needed)
- Chemo, most except 5FU and Xeloda
- Colloidal silver - the heavy metal quality of silver could cause a reaction with Protocel.
- Pau d'arco with Germanium-132 (taking either separately with Protocel is OK)
- Grapefruit seed extract (due to its high vitamin C content)
- Whey protein should also be avoided because of the L-cysteine
- Poly-MVA because of the alpha-lipoic acid
- MMS (Miracle Mineral Supplement) chlorine dioxide
- Sulfhydrazly antioxidants which includes:L-cysteineN-acetylsteine
The combination of Cantron or Protocel and bloodroot or neoplasene (bloodroot extract) may be too taxing on the body. There may be some exception if the bloodroot is used topically. Smart patients (human or animal) closely monitor elimination organs for signs that the body may be lysing too hard. If this happens, they back off of the bloodroot until the body catches up.
Treatments that Can Be Taken with Cantron
This is by no means a complete list of products that can be taken with Cantron. It is merely a list of things that are known not to increase ATP energy (adenosine triphosphate). If a substance increased ATP energy, it will reduce the effectiveness of Cantron.
Highlighted Products Have Links to Order.
- Ambrotose (plant saccharides)
- Coumadin (an anti-coagulant)
- Enzymes (generally speaking)
- Interferon (although it is highly toxic)
- IP-3 (similar to IP-6, but significantly different)
- Megace (Megestrol Acetate)
- Naltrexone, Low Dose (LDN)
- Pau d'arco (may help Cantron)*
- Polysaccharides are generally compatible
- Secal and Entergenic concentrate
- Zeloda (misspelling of Xeloda)Zink
Taking Germanium-132 and Pau d'arco will interfere with Cantron.
The above lists were produced with the assistance of Tony Bell, PhD (chemistry).
It is generally suggested that herbs be discontinued because it is unknown how they will react with Cantron.
Other substances whose reaction with Cantron is currently unknown:
- Terapia vibracional energética
The above lists were compiled with the assistance of the Protocel consulting chemist, Tanya Pierce author of Outsmart Your Cancer, and Dr. Kim Cassidy of Vitamin Depot of Tallmadge, OH. That is not to say that all are in agreement as some items on the list have some minor controversy.
Chemo With Cantron to Reduce Side Effects
Although chemo prevents Cantron from working, taking Cantron while taking chemo reduces the side effects of chemo, but does not reduce the effectiveness of chemo. For months after chemo treatments, it may be difficult for Cantron to work. Cantron does start right away, but produces results more slowly after taking chemo. Even fairly healthy people can take many months to recover from chemo.
Warning: If a cancer patient uses Cantron during a course of chemo, the reduced side effects caused by Cantron may encourage the oncologist to increase the dose of chemo. If the patient then decides to stop the Cantron, for whatever reason, the side effects of chemo can increase and greatly threaten the patients life.
Cantron has been widely available in one formulation or another since the early 1980s.
Cost per Month
Depending upon the size ordered, Cantron costs about $60 a month.

Cantron® is an amazing bio-electrical wellness formulation. It provides astonishing health benefits like no other substance on Earth. It is the world’s most potent antioxidant and scavenger of abnormal proteins which accumulate in the blood, tissues, organs and joints. Cantron is known to dramatically aid the body’s own natural defenses and helps it to reverse even the most severe health conditions. Since 1984, it has received rave reviews from those who have taken it. One customer summed it up perfectly on an Internet chat site when she emphatically stated: “How blessed we are to know about Cantron.”
Now, for the first time ever, CANTRON® is AVAILABLE in CAPSULE FORM!!! Our patents-pending freeze-dried process makes encapsulation of the authentic product possible. All active ingredients are retained. At last, it is no longer necessary to take the unpleasant tasting liquid or deal with messy staining of teeth, clothing and carpeting as experienced with prior versions and variations such as Entelev®, Cancell® or Protocel®.
More importantly, eight years of scientific research has lead to the new, improved, more potent ‘Advanced Scientific Version.’ It is significantly better than all previous versions of Cantron® as well as the older and obsolete formulations such as Entelev®, Cancell®, and Protocel®. A new antioxidant study and our internal in-vitro cell line studies show that Cantron® ASV has vastly superior potency than all previous versions and variations.
HOW DOES CANTRON® WORK?
A LAYMAN’S EXPLANATION:
This explanation is indeed for the laymen. There are generalizations and simplifications of very complex material. Professionals in the fields of medicine and biochemistry may feel the need for more detail. Such detail is presented in other writings. This paper is intended as only a general overview for those without technical backgrounds.
An understanding of Cantron requires a basic understanding of the respiratory system of the human cell. Most people think of respiration as breathing, taking oxygen into the body and letting out carbon dioxide through the lungs. However, every living cell in the body is technically involved in respiration, because the word means more than simply breathing. Respiration is a chemical reaction in the cell which involves oxygen and which provides energy for the cell. The respiration system in the cell has the job of manufacturing and delivering energy in the cell so that the various functions of the cell can be carried out. (For example, muscle cells need energy to contract and all cells need energy to grow and divide.) Thus, respiration has the more general meaning of providing energy through the respiration systems of the cell.
One of the most important parts of the respiratory system in the cell is called the “oxidation-reduction system.” Indeed, in many respects, referring to the oxidation-reduction system of the cell is much the same as referring to the respiration system. This is because in the cell the oxidation-reduction system produces energy for the cell to do its work. Scientists sometimes refer to the oxidation-reduction system as the “Redox system.”
The oxidation-reduction system can be thought of as a ladder, with a different chemical reaction taking place on each step. The respiratory reaction, which takes place on each step of this ladder is the same as on every other step in what it produces (i.e. energy for the cell to do its work), but each is also different from every other step in the sense of how effective the reaction is.
The bottom steps of the ladder involve relatively simple or “primitive” respiratory reactions. An example of a primitive reaction would be yeast while it is fermenting. Keep in mind that this is still an amazingly complex reaction. It is only “simple” or “primitive” compared to the other reactions in the oxidation-reduction system.
The higher steps involve more complex respiratory reactions. The primitive reactions at the bottom of the ladder take place without oxygen being present. The higher respiratory reactions require the presence of oxygen. Generally, for “reduction” you are moving down the ladder. For “oxidation” you are moving up the ladder,
Each “step” on this ladder has a different “potential.” “Potential” means a measurable electrical voltage, like a small battery would have. Primitive yeast cells which are fermenting will give off a certain amount of electrical energy i.e. movement of electrons. (We are talking about very small amounts of electrical energy.) As you move up toward the top of the ladder you will get increased potential energy. Thus, the potential electrical energy at the top of the ladder is greater than at the bottom. The top of the ladder has a potential of about +0.4 volts while the bottom is about -0.2 volts.
Enzymes are involved in each of the steps of the respiratory ladder. Indeed, part of’ the oxidation-reduction system within each cell is an enzyme system. In every living cell there are many different enzymes. Some of these enzymes are related primarily to the respiration system of the cell. Without these enzymes the respiration system could not function and the cell would have no energy to do its work.
Enzymes are a group of chemical compounds, which help chemical reactions take place. For example, an enzyme may make the reaction possible or may speed up a reaction which otherwise might require a great deal of time. Respiration is one chemical reaction that enzymes help. Even in the lungs, where most of us think respiration takes place, enzymes help make the oxygen usable for the body.
Each step on the oxidation-reduction ladder has a different enzyme from every other step. While certain of these enzymes are very similar to others in structure, they are still different enough to involve them in a different position on the ladder of respiratory reactions.
The major distinction between the primitive (i.e. bottom) respiratory reactions and the advanced (i.e. higher) respiratory reactions is that the primitive reactions do not use oxygen, while the advanced reactions do, Thus, in respiratory reactions below this dividing line (i.e. in the primitive part of the system) the movement of electrons does not rely on the presence of oxygen, while generally the movement of electrons in reactions above this dividing line on the ladder do require oxygen. (NOTE: there are a few situations above this line where oxygen is not used. However, they are not sufficiently significant to affect this level of explanation.
We refer to the advanced reactions, which use oxygen as “aerobic” and the primitive reactions which do not use oxygen, as “anaerobic”.
When cells are working they are using a certain amount of energy. That energy is produced as a result of chemical reactions in the respiratory system at all the steps of the aerobic portion of the ladder at the same time. These reactions can be thought of as a system in that they are all related to each other. As energy is being used in a normal cell, the respiratory system is not only providing the energy used, but also replacing the energy held in reserve,
One might think of the chemical reactions like the electrical system in an automobile. The battery provides the spark to run the engine. The engine provides the power to drive the generator. The generator recharges the battery so it, in turn, can continue to provide the spark to the engine. If all is working well, and the system is in balance, the battery will have power to supply the engine for a very long time. Likewise in the cell, if all is working well the respiratory system is in balance. As energy is drawn off by work, the cell will “generate” new energy so that more is available. The balancing will insure that a constant supply of energy is available for work.
In an automobile engine a serious problem can develop, if there is a long term, extraordinary drain on the power. For example, if a short develops or some one leaves the head lights on without the engine running (which would normally run the generator and resupply the battery). In these situations, there is a drain of energy and eventually the system will fail. Usually, this means that the battery goes dead.
In the cell there can also be a long term, extraordinary drain of power.
If this were a short term drain of energy, the cell could easily recover. For example, a muscle cell may get tired if you try to hold a weight over your head for a long time. If you put the weight down, the cell will recover nicely. If the extraordinary workload on the cell continues, despite its being tired, respiration will continue, but the “balance” of the respiratory system will eventually be affected. The unending continuation of such a workload is called a “chronic” situation. The individual cell has no way of shutting itself down to rest. It still keeps working, but the point of “balance” will continually be at an ever lower oxidation-reduction level, as long as the excess work load continues.
One example of a chronic condition is cigarette smoking. Cigarette smoke in the lungs is an irritant in which the cells in the lungs are constantly working to overcome. As they continue to try to keep up the extra work caused by the smoke, the delicate balance of the respiratory system to the lung cells is altered and effectively moves continually lower on the respiratory ladder.
THE CRITICAL POINT
The cell’s movement down the ladder slowly continues until it hits what might be called a “critical point.” The “critical point” is when the cell is about 85% of the way down from the top of the ladder. (Obviously, it is likewise about 15% up from the bottom). The reason this is a critical point is that, for some reason, the cell does not fall any further down the ladder, and remains “in balance.”
This “critical point” is significant for three other reasons. First, this is the lowest the cell can go on the respiratory ladder and still have significant similarities to a normal cell. However, it is also on one of the highest rungs of the ladder it could be on and still be able to be in the primitive zone. Second, just as the cell had been “in balance” when it was working normally in the aerobic part of the respiratory ladder this is the point at which the cell reaches a new point of “balance.” It “likes” it there; it is and will never move back to its old, normal balance in the respiratory system. Third, this is the stage at which the cell is now a cancer.
WHAT TO DO?
Once the cell is at this critical point, i.e. it is cancerous, the question becomes: What to do about it? The first thought is to simply “push” the cell back up the ladder, much as one would recharge a nearly dead battery. In theory this should work as a cure for cancer. However, all efforts to date have failed. The chemicals thus far used to push the cells back up the respiratory ladder are very toxic. Therefore, those who have tried this method have caused almost as many problems in side effects as they have solved. It has not been a satisfactory solution. The second thought might be to remove the bad cells, much as one removes broken parts from a machine. In the context of cancer this is a polite way of saying we are going to kill the bad cells.
Currently, the three methods used to kill cancer cells have severe drawbacks. Chemotherapy (i.e. chemicals that kill cells) is not only toxic to cancerous cells it is also toxic to healthy cells. Thus, it causes the extreme side effects with which we are all familiar. Indeed, chemotherapy is so toxic to healthy cells it could kill you itself if it were not for the cancer doing the job first. Radiation (i.e. such as X-¬rays that kill cells) has much the same draw backs as chemotherapy. An X-ray does not know the difference between healthy and sick tissue and can cause very undesirable side effects. Surgery (i.e. killing the cells by cutting them out; can never guarantee that they “got it all,” Indeed, on occasion, surgery will end up speeding the spread of the cancerous cells to other parts of the body.
Cantron takes a fourth approach. It was designed to take advantage of the fact that the cancer cell sits on the “critical point” of the ladder. Once again this “critical point” is where a cell turns cancerous, and is right on the boundary, the dividing line between primitive cells and normal cells. (Normal cells, sometimes called “differentiated cells, are cells which have all their functions and can do all their normal work, such as grow and divide or, for a muscle cell, contract). Healthy cells are at a “steady state.” They are constantly working, with much of their activity using energy. But, they are also effectively “recharging” themselves all the time. Thus, if you measured the potential of a normal cell (like you measure the potential of a car battery with a properly functioning regulator) it would remain substantially constant. Unfortunately, as mentioned earlier, cancer cells are also at a “steady state.” Once pushed down to that critical point, the cell “likes” it there and wants to stay in that new steady state at the 15% point on the oxidation-reduction ladder.
The real problem with having a cell in the steady state at the critical point is that the body does not know how to deal with it. If the cell were still healthy, it would know how to “recharge” itself. If the cell were further down the oxidation-reduction ladder the body would know how to get rid of it through natural processes.
Somewhat like jumping a fence, you are fine if you stay on your side and you are fine if you make it all the way over the fence. But, you are in real trouble if you land so you are straddling the fence! The cancer cell “straddles” the fence. It is neither normal enough nor primitive enough for the body to deal with in an adequate fashion.
THEORY OF OPERATION
The theory behind Cantron is to push the cell further down the oxidation-reduction ladder so it is fully and completely into the primitive stage of the oxidation-reduction system. Here, the body can deal with the cancer cell on its own. Cancer cells are often referred to as “primitive cells.” They are indeed primitive because oxygen is not used in the respiratory system of the cancer cell. Again, however, while they are true primitive cells in that sense, they constitute the boundary line between primitive and normal. It would take a relatively small step up the ladder for them to be normal again or a relatively small step down the ladder for them to be completely primitive so that the body could deal with them as primitive cells. Thus, even though they are primitive cells they “look” normal and “act” normal in certain respects.
Cantron tries to take away the last vestiges of normality, pushing them down the oxidation-reduction ladder so they are no longer on me boundary line. Once the cancer cell is definitely into the primitive stage, the body deals with it as the body does any other foreign object. It gets rid of it. But how?
A primitive cell is different than a normal cell in the way it functions. It cannot exist like other cells in the body. It becomes alien tissue, as it were “incompatible” non-functioning in the normal sense. It ceases to be cancer and it ceases to be normal. The body cannot tolerate it and rejects it. Much like trying to graft a piece of wood on your finger, the body will not allow it. The primitive cells are attacked by the body in different ways, depending on where they are in the body. In some places (like the brain) the body forms a crust-like membrane around the primitive cells. There will be the ‘tumor’ but it is dead and enclosed. In other places (skin cancer) the body effectively digests it in a process called “lysis” or simply sloughs it off like a dried out scab.
HOW DOES CANTRON WORK?
The next question is: How does Cantron cause the cell to shift from its stable state at the critical point deeper into the primitive state? The process of moving down the oxidation-reduction ladder is the process of chemical “reduction,” which is the opposite of oxidation, the moving up on the ladder.
There are chemicals that inhibit respiration. One example is a group of chemicals called catechols. Catechols are common in nature. In fact the chemical that makes cranberries red is a catechol. The inhibition of the respiration of a cancer cell will push it off its stable state and completely into the primitive state. Obviously, if a chemical is taken into the body which inhibits the respiration of the cancer cell it will, likewise, inhibit the respiration ability of every other cell it acts on. (Just as the sugar molecules from a candy bar will affect every cell they contact). Normal cells, it will be recalled, are working well within their potential to do work. They are working near the top of the oxidation-¬reduction ladder, because the cell works most effectively there.
Since normal cells work at such a high level of the oxidation-reduction system, if their respiration potential is reduced somewhat, it is no real problem for them. Cancer cells, however, are at that critical point, right on the dividing line between normal and primitive. If their respiration ability is reduced, they will be pushed completely into the primitive state. The inhibition of the respiratory system is done by shunting off “energy units” of the cell as it is working so the energy is not going through the respiratory system. (An “energy unit” is two electrons and a proton). Thus, work is being done by the cell, but not respiration. But, again, respiration is the process by which the cell manufactures and delivers energy to the various parts of the cell so that the cell can function. If work is being done, but not respiration, the cell is forced further down the oxidation-reduction ladder. Thus, once respiration is reduced, the cell is forced down completely into the primitive state.
One of the chemicals which reduce respiration is catechol. The natural catechols have many different oxidation-reduction potentials (i.e. the level on the oxidation-reduction ladder where the particular catechol will work or operate.) The trick is to find one that works at the same level as a cancer cell, i.e. at that “critical point” level.
Cantron was developed to act like a catechol, i.e. to inhibit respiration at the critical point. Cantron’s entire chemical structure was designed to inhibit respiration of cells at the “critical point”, i.e. cancerous cells, and, thus force cancer cells further into the primitive stage where the body will attack and dispose of them naturally.
ASKED ABOUT CANTRON
1)What cancers does Cantron effect?
Generally, Cantron works on all forms of cancer. Very good reports have been received regarding brain, breast, bone, pancreatic, esophageal, stomach, and lung tumors as well as non-Hodgkins lymphomas. The success rate for Cantron is not perfect. Depending on the type of cancer it generally runs about 50% to 80% successful. For many forms of cancer Cantron’s success rate is far superior to any other therapy now in use.
One notable exception is in Leukemia, especially when the patient is a child. Poor results have been reported. (Again note, this is consistent with the NCI in vitro screening which is shown among the cancers tested.) The reason for this failure rate, especially among children, is unclear. The general problem with leukemia may relate to the nature of the disease itself. With children the problems may be associated with the metabolism of children, the workload associated with their growth patterns or any number of other factors.
2)What are the side effects of Cantron?
Cantron has been used by over 40,000 human beings. There have also been experiments involving in excess of 20,000 mice (mostly white mice or standard laboratory mice along with a few nude mice. Nude mice derive their name from the fact they have no hair. Their significance is they also have no immune system and are, therefore, extremely vulnerable to toxic foreign substances.) Some of the mouse work has been specifically aimed at determining toxicity levels. NO significant toxic side effects of Cantron have been found to date. This is true in both large doses and over long periods of time. Keep in mind that almost ALL substances are toxic at extreme levels. When taken at normal doses Cantron appears to be less toxic than an occasional aspirin. The only adverse reaction reported to date involved a person who totally misunderstood the instructions and drank an entire pint of Cantron concentrate (i.e. about a three month supply) in one dose resulting in a bad case of diarrhea for several hours. The individual reported being fine the next day.
3)Is any special diet necessary while taking Cantron?
No special diet is required. If one were to think in terms of the kind of diet your grandmother would recommend or the diet the Federal Government suggests, you have a fine base for taking Cantron. In other words the diet should include foods from all the basic food groups, including vegetables, fruits, breads and meats. A balanced diet requires animal protein, which differs in its chemical make up from the protein in plants. This can be in the form of fish, fowl or red meats or such by-products as milk, cheese or eggs.
However, do NOT take mega doses of vitamins C and E while taking Cantron. The chemical make up of these two vitamins shifts the point on the oxidation-reduction ladder where Cantron works. Since Cantron was designed to hit hardest at the “critical point” i.e. cancer cells, any shift will reduce the effectiveness of Cantron. This does NOT mean to completely cut out vitamins C and E. The amounts of C and E contained in the standard multivitamin, which can be purchased at any drug store, are fine. Likewise the C and E which exist in a traditional “well-rounded diet” (such as the vitamin C in orange juice) will not adversely affect Cantron. It is only the extraordinary doses of C and E that must not be taken.
4)How much time is required on Cantron before results can be expected?
The length of time required before seeing results varies greatly from one patient to another. Such factors as the type of cancer, how far the cancer has progressed, the age of the patient, and the patient’s general health (other than the cancer) can all play a role in determining the speed with which Cantron operates. Many people report noticeable results in 3 to 5 weeks. By 7 to 9 weeks most people see results; however, some cases have taken up to 3 months. This may seem awfully slow. However, it must be kept in mind that Cantron is effectively “asking” the body to “cure itself.” Cantron does not actually “kill” the cancer cell in the usual meaning of the word “kill.” Instead, it alters the cell in a way that the body can dispose of the cancer through such normal means as Iysis. The process of altering the cancer cells and having the body dispose of them naturally is time consuming.
5)How does Cantron interact with standard therapies like surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation?
Chemotherapy can bring the percentage of success down, because chemotherapy changes the level on the oxidation-reduction ladder where Cantron works. Since Cantron was designed to hit a particular target, i.e. the “critical point” where cancer is located, any change will decrease the effectiveness of Cantron. Furthermore, chemotherapy is, as has already been pointed out, extremely toxic. This creates problems for the healthy cells in the body and one more difficulty for the body to overcome.
Radiation has not produced the marked drop in the percentage of success that chemotherapy causes. While no explanation for this is apparent it seems that radiation does not have quite the same effect on how Cantron acts on the oxidation-reduction ladder as does chemotherapy. Surgery appears to have no real adverse effect on the ability of Cantron to work on cancerous cells. The only problem with surgery is that any time the body suffers a major wound, it is asked to perform a substantial amount of work to recover.
However, having said all this, it is Imperative to keep one thought firmly in mind! Cantron takes time to work. As I noted above 7 to 9 weeks is typical and some cases take up to 3 months to see a response. If a patient has only a few days or weeks to live, Cantron may not have time to be effective. In such cases the object is to buy time. If chemotherapy will give the patient an extra month or two, by all means it should be taken. These precious weeks can then be used to give Cantron a chance to work. Granted, the use of the chemotherapy may reduce the effectiveness of Cantron, but it is far better to reduce its effectiveness than suffer certain death!
6)What If the doctor wants the patient to go back on chemotherapy after the Cantron seems to be working?
There is a tendency on the part of physicians to want to press patients who are doing well on Cantron to take chemotherapy again to “kill off the last of the cancer.” This decision belongs to the patient. One question should be asked about chemotherapy, however: Should a material, known to be toxic, be taken into the body unless extreme emergency conditions are faced. As mentioned above, chemotherapy has a use where there is no time left for a non-toxic material.
