Systemic effects of metal debris (7i of 7); excerpts from the Committee on Mutagenicity

Questions have come up on how to find a continuous track of these articles.  If you go to the landing page of the blog and click on medical studies and go to the bottom of the page, you will see all of the article titles on the parent article (1-7 parts) and you will find all of the article titles  examined by the committee (7a-7J).   Just click on the titles in sequence and you can browse through them in sequence. 

 I will be adding one more piece tomorrow which is the Additional "in-confidence data submitted to the committee for consideration.  I think the last part is the best part and contains the most meaty information.  I will publish that one tomorrow (Tuesday.)

There have been questions on what all of this has to do with Cancer.  Cancer simply put is the the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body.  When someone refers to malignant, that is what the word refers to....

In this series ( 7a-7J), the discussion centers around whether there is evidence of uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body.

The committee on mutagenicity has reported that internal exposure to orthopedic metals is associated with increased genotoxicity.

In genetics genotoxicity describes a deleterious action on a cell's genetic material affecting its integrity. Genotoxic substances are known to be potentially mutagenic or carcinogenic, specifically those capable of causing genetic mutation and of contributing to the development of tumors

In genetics, a mutagen (Latin, literally origin of change) is a physical or chemical agent that changes the genetic material, usually DNA, of an organism and thus increases the frequency of mutations above the natural background level. As many mutations cause cancer, mutagens are typically also carcinogens.

Hope this helps!
