Cancer Cells

Post by GucciGoosie » Fri Jan 25, 2019 3:30 pm

I'm not a biologist by any means, but after a few late nights being bored and researching i wanted to ask you guys if this is a good baseline idea.
So from my research I learned that, like all organisms, all cancer cells need oxygen to survive. I also found that White blood cells get there oxygen from plasma. i was wondering if we could some how use this to our advantage. Such as starving the cancer cells of oxygen an keeping the white blood cells alive.

Good idea. But how can starve cancer cells specifically, without affecting normal cells.
