Otto Warburg’s right!!!

It seems like Otto Warburg’s theory about cancer cells is really being proven to be true! Cancer cells seems to metastasize more quickly with the absence of oxygen was what was shown in the research by Dr. Giaccia of Stanforf Medical Center.

With deprivation of oxygen, cancer cells express lysyl osidase (LOX). LOX then breaks apart collagen and becomes an entry point for cancer cells to spread deeper into other parts of the body.
