A theory of cancer induction by parametric excitation.
The theory of cancer induction of ultimate carcinogens by parametric excitation is presented. Attention is drawn to the requirement of an energy transfer in perturbing DNA. The concept of energy transfer by resonance is rejected in favor of energy transfer by parametric excitation of which resonance is a special case. The result, reported here, is a remarkable agreement between the Raman vibrational bands of these ultimate carcinogens, various hypochromic bands of DNA and the predictions of parametric excitation theory. This result suggests that the peculiar relation of an ultimate carcinogen and DNA results in parametrically induced energy transfer in the vibrational mode. The problem, then, of cancer induction becomes one of analytical mechanics.更多
