Abstract:

Many hypotheses exist on the causes for the formation of malignant tumors, but up until now there has not been a complete answer to a number of questions of oncology. For example, it is not known why some individuals suffer from stomach cancer and others brain tumors under similar everyday and industrial conditions. Therefore, the penetration of chemical carcinogenic substances into the bodys internal environment combined with food through the mouth and air through the air passages was investigated. Clinical and experimental studies are summarized.
