T Cells are the Marines of your Immune System

Published on December 8, 2023

An essential function of our immune system is to detect and eliminate foreign pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. Immune cells like T cells do this by distinguishing between different types of proteins within cells, which allows them to detect the presence of infection or disease.

A type of T cell called cytotoxic T cell can recognize the mutated proteins in cancer cells and should, therefore, be able to kill them. However, in most patients, cancer cells grow unchecked despite T cells because they are inactivated in hypoxic acidic areas surrounding most cancer cells and tumors. Go after these pockets and take them out with bicarbonates, carbon dioxide, and oxygen, and you take a significant step toward winning the war on cancer. (Add hydrogen for good measure.)

Dr. Michail Sitkovsky, an immune-physiology researcher at Northeastern University, and his team found that supplemental Oxygenation inhibits the hypoxia-driven accumulation of adenosine in the tumor microenvironment and weakens immunosuppression. This, in turn, could improve cancer immunotherapy and shrink tumors by unleashing anti-tumor T lymphocytes and natural killer cells.

“Breathing supplemental oxygen opens up the gates of the tumor fortress and wakes up ‘sleepy’ anti-tumor cells, enabling these soldiers to enter the fortress and destroy it,” explained Sitkovsky, the Eleanor W. Black Chair and Professor of Immunophysiology and Pharmaceutical Biotech­nology in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences’ Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Sitkovsky and colleagues looked at one particular property of tumors. They can live without much oxygen in what are known as hypoxic environments. “Since the root of all problems is the lack of oxygen in tumors, a simple solution is to give tumors more oxygen,” Sitkovsky told NBC News.

Sitkovsky found that a receptor on the surface of immune cells—the A2A adenosine receptor—is responsible for preventing T cells from invading tumors and for “putting to sleep” those killer cells that do manage to enter the tumors. His latest work shows that supplemental oxygen weakened tumor-protecting signaling through the A2A adenosine receptor and woke up the T cells that could invade lung tumors.

Others have seen oxygen weakens cancer cells, making them more vulnerable to other treatments. Other researchers at UT Southwestern reported that increased oxygen coincides with a more significant delay in tumor growth in an irradiated animal model.

Tumors with large areas with low levels of oxygen (areas known as hypoxic regions) are associated with poor prognosis and treatment response. Oxygen is toxic to cancer cells! Only fools (mainstream oncologists) do not consider its use, for they prefer treatments that are toxic to human cells for reasons that stretch our sense of reason. Low oxygen conditions lead to disease and, eventually, cancer. When the body becomes acidic, oxygen levels drop, as do the blood’s bicarbonate and carbon dioxide levels.

What Is The Brick Wall that Paralyzes T Cells?

Lactic acid paralyzes the T cells, and that helps leukemia cells to escape from the control by the immune system,” says Dr. Robert Zeiser, a transplant physician at the University of Freiburg in Germany. Bicarbonate can play a significant role in cancer treatments because cancer cells and tumors produce excessive amounts of lactic acid. One of the reasons bicarbonate is such a miracle medicine is that it neutralizes lactic acid.

Hatfield et al. tell us that T cells avoid going into the hypoxic areas of tumors. The authors overcome this problem in mice with lung tumors by having the animals breathe supplementary oxygen. They had a higher oxygen concentration throughout the body, improving the Oxygenation inside the tumors, allowing immune cells to enter and attack them, and extending the animals’ survival.

Hypoxia incapacitates several different types of immune effector cells, enhances the activity of immunosuppressive cells, and provides new avenues that help “blind” immune cells to the presence of tumor cells. Oxygenation would reduce tumors’ escape from immune surveillance and response.

CO2 and bicarbonates are the
perfect antidotes for lactic acid.

Bicarbonate and carbon dioxide medicines promise to increase the fighting strength of T-cell killer marines. Both will cut through hypoxic areas around tumors like hot knives through soft butter. Both will slam into cancer cells and, from the inside out, severely weaken and even kill them. This is a must-book for any home or office medical library.

It goes on sale today and constitutes a quantum leap from my early bicarbonate books. It is the first book to present carbon dioxide as the prime medicine it is. Carbon dioxide is the key to oxygen, and oxygen is the key to life, so this is one of the most important books I have ever written.

Carbon Dioxide is the future sword of medicine, and with it, we get to the roots of disease and the most fundamental cause of cancer. CO2 is the flame of life; without it, there is no life or oxygen because plants use it to make oxygen in our atmosphere. Without CO2, no oxygen gets into our cells. Without it, we get sick and die.

Bitter Truth About Vaccines

This T-cell (blue) is one of the immune system’s principal means of defense.

Dr. Harold E. Buttram wrote many years ago about a little-noted letter to the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine in 1984 about an interesting German study. The study found a significant, though temporary, drop of T-helper lymphocytes in 11 healthy adults following routine tetanus booster vaccinations.

“Special concern rests in the fact that, in 4 of the subjects, the T-helper lymphocytes fell to levels seen in active AIDS patients. The implications of this study are enormous. In regards to this German study, if this was the result of a single vaccine in healthy adults, it is sobering to think of the possible consequences of multiple vaccines (18 vaccines within the first six months of life at the latest count) given to infants with their immature and vulnerable immune systems,” wrote Buttram. The natural conclusion is that vaccines reduce the immunity of children.

“I’m seeing these very calm, manageable cancers take off like wildfire, like hydras, like dragons, and they’re going everywhere,” he warned in 2021. Why are cancers taking off “like wildfire”? Because “these shots suppress the immune system,” explained Dr. Ryan Cole. “It [COVID shots] puts your T cells to sleep in a manner that they can’t fight. And T cells are the marines of your immune system. They’re the frontline warriors. We have about 30 billion T cells circulating in our body.”

COVID Shots Are Not Vaccines

One in four who had Moderna or Pfizer Covid jabs experienced unintended immune response. Almost all who have received the genetic shots have some level of heart damage, even if they display no symptoms. These companies and others have gotten away with destroying the fabric of humane thought and action, reaching into the heart of modern civilized societies and destroying all sense of law. They have somehow managed to legalize mass murder.

The Pentagon’s Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) showed that 2021 saw drastic spikes in a variety of diagnoses for serious medical issues over the previous five-year average, including hypertension (2,181%), neurological disorders (1,048%), multiple sclerosis (680%), Guillain-Barre syndrome (551%), breast cancer, (487%), female infertility (472%), pulmonary embolism (468%), migraines (452%), ovarian dysfunction (437%), testicular cancer (369%), and tachycardia (302%).
