Nutrition, pheromones and cancer: Relay for life (2014)

With other motorcycle enthusiasts from Fannin Regional Hospital and from Riverstone Medical Campus, I helped to organize a “Rumble for Relay” charity motorcycle ride in 2007.  Each year since 2008, has been a ride sponsor of the annual ride in Fannin County, GA and after members of the “Southern Cruisers Riding Club” took charge of the ride and it moved to Cherokee County, NC.

Here is a 7-minute long video from the April 26, 2014 ride organized by educators at Fannin County Middle School.

It was their second annual ride (25 riders last year/45 riders this year) and will continue to help sponsor it in the future.

The link between pheromones and cancer research is becoming clearer as more information becomes available on the epigenetic effects of diet. For example, a free course on the Epigenetic Control of Gene Expression started today. When evolutionary theorists realize that nutrients metabolize to species-specific pheromones that epigenetically effect the physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to man, the link from nutrient stress and social stress to mutations, diseases, and mental disorders will become crystal clear.

The obvious link from what animals eat eliminates any further consideration of what theorists tout as beneficial mutations even though no experimental evidence suggests that any mutation is beneficial. Population geneticists and social scientists have continued to make pseudoscientific claims about beneficial mutations despite what serious scientists understand about physics, chemistry and the conserved molecular mechanisms that link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of all species.

Organization of the genome is perturbed by mutations. However, in a recent college textbook: “Mutation-Driven Evolution” Masatoshi Nei makes these claims: “(1) Mutation is the source of all genetic variation on which any form of evolution is dependent. Mutation is the change of genomic structure and includes nucleotide substitution, insertion/deletion, segmental gene duplication, genomic duplication, changes in gene regulatory systems, transposition of genes, horizontal gene transfer, etc. (2) Natural selection is for saving advantageous mutations and eliminating harmful mutations. Selective advantage of the mutation is determined by the type of DNA change, and therefore natural selection is an evolutionary process initiated by mutation. It does not have any creative power in contrast to the statements made by some authors.” (p. 196)

See A Challenge to the Supremacy of DNA as the Genetic Material and the discussion comments on the article for the most recent refutations of mutation-driven evolution, which is not biologically plausible. Dr. Nei and others might want others to continue believing that “…genomic conservation and constraint-breaking mutation is the ultimate source of all biological innovations and the enormous amount of biodiversity in this world.” (p. 199) But, only if others continue to ignore everything currently known about biologically based cause and effect, will they continue to believe in such pseudoscientific nonsense.
