As Predicted: Chronic Virus Found Living in Tumors of the Prostate

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Dr. Ila R. Singh, an associate professor of pathology at the University of Utah, "for the first time we have analyzed prostate cancer and normal prostate tissue and found cancers are much more likely to have [the XMRV virus] ... It was also more likely to be present in more aggressive tumors," Singh said. "We found it in 20 percent of the least aggressive tumors and over 45 percent of the most aggressive tumors."

More and more studies find chronic viruses living in tumors, exactly as predicted by Dr. Hanan Polansky in his highly acclaimed 2003 "purple book." According to Dr. Polansky, a chronic virus is a genetic parasite. In high concentrations, the virus "starves" certain human genes and forces them to behave as if they have been mutated, leading to cancer and other diseases.

Think of the nucleus inside the cell as a field with many flowers. To bear fruit, the flowers need pollination by certain bees. Now think of a virus as another flower that migrated into the field. The viral flower also attracts the bees, however with much higher efficiency (stronger scent?). What happens to the production of fruit by the local flowers? It declines. And since many animals are dependent on this fruit, the entire ecosystem is affected. The "starved" human genes stop bearing their fruit, or proteins. They behave as if they've been mutated. (They were not, but to a puzzled scientist they look like they've been mutated!) And without the needed proteins, the cell stops functioning properly, a condition we call disease.

The Starved Gene is a fundamental discovery. It applies to many viruses, many human genes, and many diseases. This discovery inspired scientists at polyDNA to develop a broad-range, all-natural nutritional supplement that targets viruses. To develop the antiviral supplement, they used their signature process. They scanned the scientific literature, analyzed thousands of papers using a proprietary bioinformatics-based computer program, and identified the most effective and safe antiviral natural ingredients. These ingredients were combined to form Gene-Eden, a supplement that targets viruses such as the flu virus, Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV), Varicella Zoster Virus(VZV), Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), or Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
