Nutrition, pheromones and cancer: Relay for life (2014)

With other motorcycle enthusiasts from Fannin Regional Hospital and from Riverstone Medical Campus, I helped to organize a “Rumble for Relay” charity motorcycle ride in 2007.  Each year since 2008, has been a ride sponsor of the annual ride in Fannin County, GA and after members of the “Southern Cruisers Riding Club” took charge of the ride and it moved to Cherokee County, NC.

Here is a 7-minute long video from the April 26, 2014 ride organized by educators at Fannin County Middle School.

Rumble for Relay 2014

It was their second annual ride (25 riders last year/45 riders this year) and will continue to help sponsor it in the future.

The link between pheromones and cancer research is becoming clearer as more information becomes available on the epigenetic effects of diet. For example, a free course on the Epigenetic Control of Gene Expression started today. When evolutionary theorists realize that nutrients metabolize to species-specific pheromones that epigenetically effect the physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to man, the link from nutrient stress and social stress to mutations, diseases, and mental disorders will become crystal clear.

The obvious link from what animals eat eliminates any further consideration of what theorists tout as beneficial mutations even though no experimental evidence suggests that any mutation is beneficial. Population geneticists and social scientists have continued to make pseudoscientific claims about beneficial mutations despite what serious scientists understand about physics, chemistry and the conserved molecular mechanisms that link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of all species.

Organization of the genome is perturbed by mutations. However, in a recent college textbook: “Mutation-Driven Evolution” Masatoshi Nei makes these claims: “(1) Mutation is the source of all genetic variation on which any form of evolution is dependent. Mutation is the change of genomic structure and includes nucleotide substitution, insertion/deletion, segmental gene duplication, genomic duplication, changes in gene regulatory systems, transposition of genes, horizontal gene transfer, etc. (2) Natural selection is for saving advantageous mutations and eliminating harmful mutations. Selective advantage of the mutation is determined by the type of DNA change, and therefore natural selection is an evolutionary process initiated by mutation. It does not have any creative power in contrast to the statements made by some authors.” (p. 196)

See A Challenge to the Supremacy of DNA as the Genetic Material and the discussion comments on the article for the most recent refutations of mutation-driven evolution, which is not biologically plausible. Dr. Nei and others might want others to continue believing that “…genomic conservation and constraint-breaking mutation is the ultimate source of all biological innovations and the enormous amount of biodiversity in this world.” (p. 199) But, only if others continue to ignore everything currently known about biologically based cause and effect, will they continue to believe in such pseudoscientific nonsense.

About James V. Kohl 1308 Articles
James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones. Recently, Kohl integrated scientific evidence that pinpoints the evolved neurophysiological mechanism that links olfactory/pheromonal input to genes in hormone-secreting cells of tissue in a specific area of the brain that is primarily involved in the sensory integration of olfactory and visual input, and in the development of human sexual preferences. His award-winning 2007 article/book chapter on multisensory integration: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences followed an award winning 2001 publication: Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology, which was coauthored by disinguished researchers from Vienna. Rarely do researchers win awards in multiple disciplines, but Kohl’s 2001 award was for neuroscience, and his 2007 “Reiss Theory” award was for social science. Kohl has worked as a medical laboratory scientist since 1974, and he has devoted more than twenty-five years to researching the relationship between the sense of smell and the development of human sexual preferences. Unlike many researchers who work with non-human subjects, medical laboratory scientists use the latest technology from many scientific disciplines to perform a variety of specialized diagnostic medical testing on people.
