The Tasmanian devil is said to develop MOUTH cancer when it gets bitten by another, but ‘infected’ individual of the same kind.
Further, its big-sized body (Wikipedia) too should be the result of such calcium accumulation in the cells of the entire body.
(Ref: True Causes of All Diseases, 2008).
In fact, even leprosy itself is the result of far too much of calcium accumulation that goes beyond the tolerance limit of the body, related to total abstinence of urination.
This is why most of the diabetics develop colo-rectal cancer.
Further, they could be constantly eating smaller quantities of their prey, as it happens in the case of rabbits.
These fluids tend to get absorbed by the cells there at the mouth, before drying up.
A continued activity of this kind can result in initial cell enlargement (hypertrophy), and then cell division (hyperplasia) leading to lumps, and then a cancer there, which can spread to other parts of the body later (spread).
The above process can speed up the process of cancer development there when more calcium gets absorbed while eating the prey.
Such a lymph-calcium monitoring between the healthy individuals as against the infected ones should reveal the truth in this case.
A comparison with another group of Control should reveal the phenomenon.
Again, it is because of this causative factor, that finding a vaccine for human cancers has not become successful until now.
I hope the authors of the above paper would see my write-up here, and consider the possibility of carrying out some of the experiments I have suggested, to see if my hypothesis makes any sense.
