Likely Cause Of Childhood Leukaemia Discovered In Prevention Breakthrough

Likely cause of childhood leukaemia discovered in prevention breakthrough

A leading scientist says acute lymphoblastic leukaemia appears to have a "clear biological cause", triggered by infections.

By Thomas Moore, science and medical correspondent

A leading scientist has identified the likely cause of childhood leukaemia – and said most cases could be prevented.

Professor Mel Greaves of the Institute of Cancer Research said a combination of a genetic mutation while babies are still in the womb, followed by an infection with an unknown bacteria or virus, is the most likely cause of the blood cancer.

Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is the most common type of childhood cancer, with 500 cases diagnosed in the UK each year. Around 90% are cured.

Professor Greaves, who has been studying childhood leukaemia for more than 40 years, debunked theories that radiation, high voltage electricity cables or chemicals caused leukaemia.
Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Missing microbes 'cause' childhood cancer

By James Gallagher Health and science correspondent, BBC News

Our modern germ-free life is the cause of the most common type of cancer in children, according to one of Britain's most eminent scientists.

Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia affects one in 2,000 children.

Prof Mel Greaves, from the Institute of Cancer Research, has amassed 30 years of evidence to show the immune system can become cancerous if it does not "see" enough bugs early in life.

It means it may be possible to prevent the disease.
Combined events

The type of blood cancer is more common in advanced, affluent societies, suggesting something about our modern lives might be causing the disease.

There have been wild claims linking power cables, electromagnetic waves and chemicals to the cancer.

That has been dismissed in this work published in Nature Reviews Cancer.
