Most people think that DNA damage is what causes a cell to be cancerous. While it is true that cancer cells may have DNA damage, it is highly unlikely that DNA damage can cause any cell to become cancerous. In fact, the DNA damage is a result of the true cause cancer. 
So let us discuss what really causes cancer. 
There have been many discoveries about cancer in the past 125 years. 
For example, William Russell (1852-1940), in 1890, discovered that there are microbes inside and outside of cancer cells. Later it was discovered that the microbes inside cancer cells were “pleomorphic,” that is, they changed shapes and sizes depending on the pH inside the cancer cells. In 1931, the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Otto Warburg for his discovery in determining that the defining characteristic of cancer cells was low “ATP energy” (ATP is made inside the mitochondria of cells and is called “adenosine triphosphate”). 
But Not Healthy Cells In 1930, it was proven that if the microbes ins…

The ancient sites and monuments destroyed in Syria's crisis

The Association for the Protection of Syrian Archaeology says more than 900 monuments and archaeological sites have been looted, damaged or destroyed in the country's crisis.

Referring to satellite images, the United Nations said in December that 300 sites had been plundered, damaged or destroyed.

He said that among at least seven tombs destroyed were the three best preserved and most treasured funerary towers, including the famed Tower of Elahbel.

Earlier this week, the UN training and research agency UNITAR said satellite images "confirm the destruction of the main Temple of Bel as well as a row of columns in its immediate vicinity".

Key players in the Syrian war traded accusations over violations of the first major ceasefire in the five-year conflict, but the truce remained largely intact on its second day.

The main opposition grouping described the ceasefire as "positive" but lodged a formal complaint with the United Nations and foreign governments about breaches on the first day.

"We have violations here and there, but in general it is a lot better than before and people are comfortable," said Salem al-Meslet, spokesman for the Saudi-backed High Negotiations Committee (HNC).

An HNC letter to UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon accused the Syrian government and its allies of committing "24 violations with artillery shelling and five ground operations... in 26 areas held by the moderate opposition".
