Stress Causes Breast Cancer by Increasing Microcompetition with Latent Viruses According to New Paper

A new paper by CBCD scientists was published by the leading medical journal, Frontiers in Cellular and Infection in Microbiology, on September 24, 2015. (1)

12 Oct, 2015 – Hanan Polansky and Adrian Javaherian from The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) published a new paper in the peer reviewed medical journal, Frontiers in Cellular and Infection in Microbiology. The journal has a high impact factor of 4. The paper can be found

The Polansky and Javaherian paper comments on another article, which deals with breast cancer and a loss of function in a specific gene. The authors of the other article wrote that “A significant event leading to the development of breast cancer is loss of BRCA1 function.” (1) Polansky and Javaherian proposed a second biological mechanism through which stress and the presence of latent viruses cause a deficiency in the GABP transcription factor and breast cancer. This second mechanism is based on the theory of “Microcompetition.” (1) The paper was published on September 24, 2015.

Microcompetition was first proposed in Dr. Hanan Polansky’s highly acclaimed “Purple” book, entitled Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease. In this book, he explains how foreign DNA fragments can cause many major diseases. The book has been read by more than 5,000 scientists around the world, and has been reviewed in more than 20 leading scientific journals.

How do latent viruses cause microcompetition and breast cancer?

According to Dr. Hanan Polansky’s theory, these viruses are genetic parasites. In high concentrations, they microcompete with the human genes, “starve” these genes, and force them to behave as if they’ve been mutated, that is, to behave as if they are broken.

The Theory of Microcompetition is far-reaching. It applies to many viruses, many genes, and many diseases. For example, the authors of the commentary wrote that “The term “Microcompetition” describes the relationship between viral and cellular regulatory elements. It is interesting that many common viruses, which establish a latent infection, have a strong N-box in their promoters/enhancers. These viruses include the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV), Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV), Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), and the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). In fact, the CMV has the strongest promoter/enhancer known to science.” (1)

Importantly, the authors stressed that “Most individuals harbor a latent viral infection exposing them to transcription factor deficiency. Therefore, these individuals are at risk of diseases that can be triggered by such deficiency, including cancer.” (1)
