Unfortunately, nobody knows what causes brain cancers.

There are lot of causes of brain cancer like anxiety and depression.There is another cause of brain cancer and that is the instant use of cell phones because cell phones have lot of radiations which are not good for our health and brain.

No one really knows what causes brain cancer.
For some kinds of cancer there is a gene that is predictive, indicating that there is at least a genetic disposition of some sort.
The incidence of brain cancer has increased slightly, but researchers aren't sure if this is due to improved diagnostic techniques, or some other cause.
While people have blamed soft drinks, cell phones, and other environmental factors, the research doesn't yet bear this out, because the increased rates don't correlate closely with the use of such factors, and loose correlations are very hard to find in complex systems such as life.

Antineoplastons: Dr. Burzynski's Innovative Cancer Treatment
Antineoplastons (ANP) are peptides and amino acid derivatives, discovered by Dr. S. Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D. in 1967.

looking Dr. Burzynski first identified naturally occurring peptides in the human body that control cancer growth. He observed that cancer patients typically had deficiency of certain peptides in their blood as compared to healthy individuals. According to Dr. Burzynski, Antineoplastons are components of a biochemical defense system that controls cancer without destroying normal cells.

Chemically, the Antineoplastons include peptides, amino acid derivatives and organic acids. They occur naturally in blood and urine and they are reproduced synthetically for medicinal use. The name of Antineoplastons comes from their functions in controlling neoplastic, or cancerous, cells (anti-neoplastic cells agents).

Antineoplastons act as molecular switches, which turn off life processes in abnormal cells and force them to die through apoptosis (programmed death of a cell). While they trigger the death of cancer cells, they do not inhibit normal cell growth. They specifically target cancer cells without harming healthy cells.

It is generally known that the cancerous process results from increased activity of oncogenes and decreased expression of tumor suppressor genes. Antineoplastons "turn on" tumor suppressor genes and "turn off" oncogenes restoring the proper balance in gene expression

The FDA permits cancer patients to be treated using Antineoplastons in FDA approved clinical trails. Since brain cancer is one of the most difficult cancers to treat, he places a focus on brain cancer in his clinical trials.

Be sure to watch, on YOUTUBE,the first 36 of 108 minutes of

I am very interested to hear your thoughts. Idea

Some known causes of cancer are:

Excessive:

mobile phone radiation

aspartame and other artificial sweeteners

Dr. Wascher what is your take on the latest research on cancer related to low Glutathione?

There is a lot of controversy regarding the exact cause of cancer.Exposure to radiation or dangerous chemicals may put one at the higher risk of developing a brain cancer. Nuclear radiation, formaldehyde, vinyl chloride and acrylonitrile are considered to be especially dangerous.

There is studies that show a relation between glutathione and cancer cells. Glutathione being the most prevalent antioxidant that is found on a intracellular lever in every cell in ou body especially highly active in the liver, and brain cells.

It is the only main antioxidant that your body makes that targets inflammation within the cellular walls that can lead to different forms of cancer.
