John Hopkins has determined that a protein called Merlin controls cell growth and if disrupted accounts for most brain and spinal cord cancers. As we surmised in this BLOG, cancer is a normal cellular action. The bodies need cells to grow at times and stop growing at other times. When cells continually grow, it is called cancer. Merlin is a protein that causes a epigenetic reaction in our cells. It can turn cell growth on or off.
