Aging, a natural bodily process, occurs to all living creatures. From the viewpoint of holistic medicine, a working definition of aging may be applied to practically all clinical patients. The definition is adapted almost universally by health professionals. Most CAM therapists affirm: Aging is a gradual accumulation of toxic chemicals and other substances in the body which cause genome destabilization and resultant catastrophic breakdown of tissue homeostasis.
Since a tie-in between cancer and aging exists, the definition was confirmed on May 16, 2003 by anticancer therapist Stanislaw Burzynski, MD, of Houston, Texas. During his presentation before the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), Dr. Burzynski emphasized: "Links between cancer and aging are well known and clearly visible. The incidence of cancer increases as humans age, due to decreased anti-tumor defenses, mutation, and the silencing of tumor suppressor genes through methylation and deacetylation, along with exposure to carcinogens, a decline in immune defense, and decreased DNA repair."

The aging definition cited above by CAM therapists encompasses their most important physiological objectives: first, remove toxic substances from the body, next, repair the damage that has already been done, and finally, protect the physiology from any further damage. Such medical treatment will return the body to a self-sustaining state of homeostasis. All objectives for homeostasis derive from the need to stabilize DeoxyriboNucleic Acid (DNA).
It may surprise readers that the research which catapulted deoxyribonucleic acid to the forefront of medical science was published in the British scientific journal Nature just 50 years ago, on April 25, 1953, by Nobel Laureates James Watson, PhD, and Francis Crick, PhD. However, even more dramatic breakthroughs for science and medicine occurred two decades after these DNA structural revelations. The results are now being brought to public attention for the first time. From the molecular biochemical investigations of Mirko Beljanski, PhD, highly significant breakthroughs about cancer and aging are finally available in published form (see Photographs 1, 2, 3, 4 showing the molecular biologist at work in his laboratory).
During the spring months of 2003, holistic physician Michael B. Schachter, MD, of Suffern, New York introduced "Dr. Mirko Beljanski's Innovative Approach to Cancer, Chronic Viral Diseases, and Autoimmune Conditions." (2,3)
Mirko Beljanski, PhD (1923-1998)
Born in Yugoslavia in 1923, this producer of momentous breakthroughs in molecular biology and medical science, Mirko Beljanski, immigrated to France. During 1949 he took up residency and citizenship in a country renowned for scientific advancement and technological innovation. After earning a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Paris, the young scientist set off on a search for truth which lasted until his death on October 28, 1998. The object of Dr. Beljanski's passion was nothing less than the source of life itself: human DNA.
In all cells, DNA functions as the molecule of heredity. It dwells in the cellular nucleus and stores genetic information for making ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules and proteins, plus each of its strands serves as a template for its own replication. As per the Watson and...
