Ancient viruses buried in our DNA may be raising our risks for cancer

Thanks to a friend, I also read this New York Times Science article on ancient viruses and their possible link to cancer:

Did you know that our “DNA contains roughly 100,000 pieces of viral DNA”? No, I didn’t, either, yikes. That’s one of the things I learned from this article…

Anyway, I hope you enjoy yet another very interesting reading…a rather scary one, too, when you think about all the ancient retroviruses living inside of us, and what they might be doing, but, as I always maintain, it’s better to KNOW than not to know.  🙂


  1. I haven’t started it yet, but I want to try Transfer Factor to help the immune system combat viruses and myeloma cells. Researched Nutritionals actually has a Transfer Factor formula that works against EBV and Herpes viruses, perhaps it would take care of these as well. Can’t wait to start this. I have had a sneaking suspicion that underlying EBV and herpes viruses are the root cause of my myeloma.

  2. Hi Margaret,

    Tried using the CONTACT page but just get a message saying to contact the administrator. I have myeloma, take circumin, and have some ideas for research that I would like to discuss.

    What’s the best way to get in touch?
