cell proliferation


Gong All Out And All On.....

a: Cell proliferation ~
b: putting your foot on the accelerator

What: Testosterone, Estrogen, etc tend to increase cell proliferation in hormone sensitive tissues eg( breast, uterus, testes, prostate, etc ). Whilst this in itself does not cause cancer, if one's DNA gets a mutation in certain sections of it eg( from exposure to certain toxic substances called mutagens, randomly through from aging and genetic degradation ), then that mutation can mess up the bodys ability to switch the breaks on cell proliferation. The addition of something that increases cell proliferation is like putting your foot on the accelerator, when you have no breaks.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
